Stuffing on fork


I absolutely love stuffing. Usually it's my Mom's homemade stuffing recipe that we eat during the holiday season, but I had to combine two of my favorites, wild rice and mushrooms and try something new for Sunday dinner last week.

I haven't blogged my Mom's stuffing recipe yet, but I really need to soon! She combines day old hamburger or hot dog buns, eggs, milk, diced onion, sage, salt and pepper. It's so simple and the buns make it taste SO much better than bread.

Today's recipe is semi-homemade and it all starts with a box of Stovetop Stuffing. I'm not a huge fan of Stovetop prepared as packaged, but love it jazzed up like this.

Once you saute the veggies and mix everything together, just throw it in the oven and it's ready in no time at all.

This is a perfect, easy side for the holidays since there's minimal prep and tons of flavor!

The wild rice adds a nutty flavor and great texture, and the mushrooms add the earthy flavor, tying everything together.

If you're not a mushroom fan but love wild rice, just leave the mushrooms out and add some extra wild rice instead. You can also switch up the veggies if you prefer or have something else on hand.


Stuffing on plate



What are the ingredients in this recipe?

  • Butter: A dairy product consisting of approximately 80% butterfat and made from the fat and protein components of milk or cream. Most commonly made from cow's milk, but can also be made from sheep, goat, yak, or buffalo milk.
  • Celery: Rich in vitamin k, folate and potassium, Celery is mostly water, but is a great dietary fiber. I only love raw celery with buffalo wings, but I like it cooked in so many different dishes.
  • White mushrooms: These mushrooms are very common and their technical name is Agaricus bisporus! They are delicious raw or cooked and I love them sautéed or roasted. They are cheap to buy and contain potassium and protein.
  • Onion: The onion is a vegetable that is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Allium. It's relatives include the garlic, shallot, leek, and chive. Onions contain antioxidants, red onions have the highest antioxidant amount.  Onions produce the chemical irritant known as syn-propanethial-S-oxide. This irritant floats up from the chopped onion and causes tears. Chill the onion prior to chopping to reduce irritation.
  • Wild rice: If you haven't tried it before, now is the time! The grassy plant grows in shallow water in small lakes or slow flowing streams. It has protein, fiber and vitamin B6.  Find it on Amazon here!
  • Poultry seasoning: Made with dried herbs such as sage, thyme, rosemary, ground black pepper, and marjoram. Dried sage and thyme make up the bulk of the flavor with their highly aromatic aroma and woodsy overtones. Its bold herby flavor is perfect for poultry, stuffing and gravy. Find it on Amazon here!
  • turkey stovetop stuffing
  • large eggs
  • chicken broth
