MY OTHER RECIPES


I am currently enroute to Tokyo with about 6 hours left on my flight.

I’ll be eating my way through all the ramen and sushi I can find the minute I land.

But I will also be daydreaming about this.

Stuffing.

Yes. I said stuffing.

Oh-so-buttery, carb-loaded stuffing, drenched in leftover turkey gravy.

And now you can make the stovetop version in seconds.

I also want to state.

That there is no judgment for those who have eaten the boxed version.

But this homemade version though.

It will knock your socks off.

And you can easily customize it to use cornbread instead of sourdough.

Or add in Italian sausage.

Maybe some bacon.

Or pancetta.

You get it.

Ingredients:

  • 10 slices sourdough bread, diced into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
