THE PERFECT ACCOMPANIMENT TO ROASTED MEATS
This easy stuffing ball recipe is the perfect accompaniment to roasted chicken, roasted turkey or roasted duck. I love to shape this delicious stuffing mix into cute little balls and cook them separately. Cooking them separately means they cook very quickly and get super crispy on the outside.
It’s also perfect if you have vegetarian guests because it means they too can enjoy this great stuffing.
But if you prefer, you can of course use Easy Sage and Onion Stuffing Mix to stuff the neck cavity of a turkey, or stuff the main cavity of a chicken or duck. Don’t forget to weigh your poultry once stuffed and calculate the cooking time based on the weight of the stuffing.
How To Make it
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Prep a baking pan with nonstick baking spray.
Add butter to a large skillet, heat to medium temperature. Saute the chopped onions for 10 minutes.
Add celery. Stir in parsley, sage, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook on medium, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Remove from the stove.
Add the toasted and chopped lo-carb bread and the cornbread stuffing in a large bowl.
Stir to blend the two together.
Add the beaten egg and ¾ cup of the chicken broth to the bowl. Stir to mix.
Add in the sauteed onions, celery, and seasonings.
Use your hands to make small balls. Put the balls on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
Gently pour the remaining chicken broth over the stuffing balls.
Return to the oven and continue to bake them at 375 degrees for 15 more minutes.
