Crouton Stuffing

>> Monday, July 20, 2009

Sorry for the lack of posting around here lately! Things have been crazy for us, what with our move, home improvements and then we took a 2 week vacation. Then it takes you like a week to recover from your vacation (why is that?!), so I'm finally back!

This is a "recipe" (i.e. more of a method) that my hubby gets credit for. We had some croutons we needed to use up in the pantry, so he used them to make Thanksgiving stuffing one year. It was fan-tas-tic! So much better than boxed stuffing.

1 onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, diced
croutons (we really don't measure, just eyeball it)
chicken stock

Melt butter over medium heat. Saute onion and celery until tender (we like to chop up the leafy green parts of the celery to throw in our stuffing, too).

When tender, add croutons. Stir them around to get some buttery goodness all over every crouton.

Then add your chicken stock. You'll probably only need a cup or so, just enough to moisten the croutons.

And there you have it! Super easy, super quick and super yummy! It's a perfect side dish, or you can use it in Chicken Stuffing Skillet, which is how we used it tonight.

Have you done anything fun so far this summer?
Any exciting plans?
