A holiday is not complete without stuffing. With flavours of onion, celery and butter, there’s no going wrong with this side dish.
This dish can be cooked in different ways, where it can be stuffed into the turkey or chicken or it can be cooked in a casserole dish on its own. During the holidays, since I am making a turkey anyways I like to stuff it for extra flavouring. Feel free to make it on any night in a casserole, you’ll see how simple it really is.
