THE EASIEST THANKSGIVING DRESSING RECIPE
Each year, as we gear up for the holiday season, we start to think about which recipes we’re going to have to make via traditional methods – and which one’s we can farm out to… ahem, more unconventional means.
Because whether it’s turkey-day or one of the many holiday parties you might be going to, keeping it manageable in the kitchen is priority #1.
This rice cooker stuffing recipe is so easy to whip up – but it doesn’t taste like you put in minimal effort. It’s savory and perfectly spiced. We’d say it’s our favorite side dish alongside turkey, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole and mashed potatoes and gravy!
Now, when it comes to the bread for this stuffing – we’d recommend using a day-old baguette or ciabatta ideally. But you can really use whatever bread you’ve got handy.
Chopped walnuts deliver a great texture to the overall dish – and dried herbs like rosemary and oregano give this rice cooker stuffing that trademark holiday flavor profile.
Chicken stock introduces another level of savory goodness to the dish. But you could use veggie stock if you plan on making a vegetarian stuffing.
But no matter what stock you decide on, you’re going to love how easy it is to make this homemade stuffing in your rice cooker!
