Gobble, gobble, it’s turkey time!

October 6, 2010 § 1 Comment

In our very humble opinion, the star of the Thanksgiving Holidays is the turkey.  In close second place is the stuffing.  In preparation for our very busy week, one of the items we are busy assembling is a pre-cubed bag of our fabulous artisan bread.  But, it wouldn’t be right to just stuff your turkey with our bread, so we are also assembling some recipes to go with those bags of bread to let your creative juices flow this Thanksgiving.

Apple Sausage Stuffing

3/4 c butter

2 1/2 c diced onions

2 c diced celery

1 1/2 c grated carrots

1 lb bulk pork sausage

3 c chopped cooking apples

1 tsp salt

2 tbsp poultry seasoning

1 tsp ground sage

1 tsp ground black pepper

1/2 c  chicken stock

1 bag A Bread Affair bread cubes

1/4 c white wine

Melt butter, and saute onions and celery and carrots for 5 minutes, add sausage, breaking up with a fork.  Continue to cook until sausage is no longer pink.  Add spices and simmer for 2 more minutes.

Add sausage mixture to bread and stock and wine, and apples and mix until combined.  Stuff turkey before it is ready to go into the oven, do not stuff turkey ahead of time.

Cranberry Orange Stuffing

1/2 c butter

2 c diced onions

1 c grated carrots

1 c diced fennel (or celery)

1 tsp chopped garlic

1 c dried cranberries

1/4 c orange juice concentrate

2 c warm vegetable or chicken stock

3 eggs

1 tbsp poultry seasoning

1 tsp dried thyme

1 bag A Bread Affair bread cubes

Melt butter, saute onions, fennel and carrots for about 8 minutes or until onions are translucent.  Add chopped garlic and simmer for another 2 minutes.

Add warm stock to bread, allow bread to absorb the stock.  Beat eggs and add to bread and stock.  Add remaining ingredients, add salt and pepper to taste.  Stuff turkey before it is ready to go into the oven, do not stuff turkey ahead of time.

Ham and Green Peppercorn Stuffing

3/4 c butter

1 c chopped leeks (white part only)

2 1/2  c chopped celery

1 tbsp chopped garlic

3 tbsp green peppercorn soaked in hot water for approx. one hour drained

3 c cubed black forest ham

3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

3 tbsp fresh sage

1/4 tsp dried nutmeg

2 c vegetable stock

1/2 c brandy

1 bag A Bread Affair bread cubes

Melt butter, saute leeks and celery for 8 minutes, or until leeks are wilted, but not browned.  Add ham and garlic and saute for another 3 – 4 minutes.  Add stock to bread, allowing it to soak in.  Add remainder of ingredients.  Stuff turkey before it is ready to go into the oven, do not stuff turkey ahead of time.
