I need the official best stuffing recipe...
 
I know there are Thanksgiving threads everywhere and I've seen quite a few different recipes and methods for stuffing. I need to know a tried and true stuffing recipe.

The dry ingredients we have are:
Carbqick
Almond flour
Flax Meal
Soy Flour

I've tried to make one with Flax muffins but it turns out slimy:sick:

Why not just make one from a lc bread such as Healthy Life or Trader Joe's Sprouted Whole Wheat? :)

The Chicken Lady 11-18-2009 09:59 AM

I use this recipe to make my cornbread and then cut it up into cubes and dry it out in the oven. Then use it to make my stuffing the same way I have always made cornbread stuffing.

You can cut the carbs some by subbing Carbquik for the oat flour and if you don't have any way of grinding popcorn up, can sub some whole meal organic corn meal from a health food store.

There is a picture of this cornbread in this thread.

Golden Corn Bread

2 cups-(8ounces) almond flour-
1/2 cup-(2ounces) oat flour
2/3 cup-(3-1/2ounces) popcorn meal
1/3 cup Splenda
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 eggs
1/4 cup oil
1 cup…homemade LC milk

Put a cast iron skillet into the oven and preheat the oven and the skillet to 425°

Mix the dry ingredients together, make a well in the middle. Add oil, eggs, and milk in the well and mix with a wire whisk. Allow to stand for 5 minutes to give the ingredients time to hydrate.

Take the hot skillet out of the oven and place it on the stove over high heat. Put just enough oil in the skillet to swish it around good and heat the oil. Pour the batter into the hot pan and place it in the oven and bake at 425° for 20 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Carbs 137
Fiber -41
Total 96 usable carbs for the whole bread

96 divided by 12 servings = 8 carbs per serving
96 divided by 8 servings = 12 carbs per serving

I make mine with Ezekiel bread, mushrooms, sausage, celery, onion, and fresh herbs(parsley, sage, thyme). Saute veggies in butter(lots!) add cooked crumbled sausage, cubed bread, and enough chicken stock to make it as moist as you want. I only use 4 slice of bread, a whole pound of sausage, an 8 oz package of mushrooms, one stalk celery and one small onion. I bake it in a casserole dish, because my mom makes her traditional stuffing in the turkey.

ChickenLady, I made your cornbread the other night, and it was just fabulous. It is a 10 in my book. Thank you thank you. Julie

MsWoods 11-18-2009 10:48 AM

We don't have any LC bread in my area, I don't have any of the large chain stores like Trader Joes. I have to make something from scratch.

I have a friend in TX who eats the Healthy Life bread-it's at most grocery store chains now. What stores do you have available? :)

MsWoods 11-18-2009 11:14 AM

We have United Supermarket and Walmart basically.

Rdm 11-18-2009 11:18 AM

Check WalMart for it-the one up here does so hopefully yours does go. I know you can request certain items at WalMart too and sometimes they can get it in. Good Luck!

MsWoods 11-18-2009 11:22 AM

I will def. check. Thanks so much :)

Cool!! We are having small red beans, smoked sausage and cornbread for supper tonight. I'm going to try making the cornbread with all almond flour...cutting out the oat flour... to save a few carbs and see how it turns out.

The Walmart brand of small red beans has 22g carbs and 16g fiber...they are really good and make great chili as well.

SCOTTSDALEJULIE 11-18-2009 03:44 PM

Let us know how it turns out. I think it was just perfect, but I didn't have oat flour, so I used whole wheat pastry flour.

SCOTTSDALEJULIE 11-18-2009 03:48 PM

Mswoods, try Nature's Own double fiber bread. It's not in the low carb section. My walmart carries it. It is a little higher in carbs that the lc bread. It hasnet 8 carbs per slice, but is really good. And if you just ate some, I think you'de be all right.

The almond flour makes a lovely cornbread...I think I like it better this way then with the oat flour.

Your welcome...hope you have a good time at your cookoff.

This was my Grandmothers meat stuffing recipe. It depends on how big a turkey you are making. G-ma always made at least a 20 lb. bird. Read through the entire recipe before you begin.



1 stick of butter

1 very large onion diced or 2 medium onions

4 stalks (ribs) of celery (about 1/3 of the whole thing) diced- use the leafy tops too.

1/2 bunch fresh parsley chopped

1 lb. sliced mushrooms

1/4 cup raisins (I prefer craisins)

1/4 cup pine nuts (lightly toasted in a dry frying pan) They burn quickly, so watch them.

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp pepper

1 tablespoon of dried thyme

1 lb. of chopped beef or turkey or chicken or venisen

1 lb. of sausage (Jimmy Deans) the kind in a tube ( if you can find the sage flavored one use that!!)

1/2 cup of grated Italian Cheese (Parmesan/Romano)



Melt the butter in a very large frying pan, then add the onion, celery, mushrooms, parsley, Salt and pepper and the thyme, let brown slightly for about 10 minutes. Add the raisins and pine nuts, cook for another 5 minutes. Set aside in a bowl and let cool. In the same pan, brown off the chopped meat and the sausage, breaking it up as it cooks. Don't discard the drippings, Add everything together, drippings, meat, and all the rest of the ingredients in the bowl. Taste for salt. If you can't find pine nuts ( they have them at Sam's and Costco) you can use sliced almonds. If you use the sliced almonds increase the amount to 1/2 cup of almonds. Sprinkle the cheese into the mixture and stir just before stuffing the bird. The cheese helps to bind everything together. It should be very moist and loose. Be sure to stuff the neck cavity too.

The flavor goes through the whole bird with this dressing .

Let me know how it turns out. I assure you you'll never crave a bread stuffing again!:cool:

sistertzu 11-18-2009 08:06 PM

OMG Miss Woods you're such a cutie!!! Great pics.

I made dressing with mock cornbread without carbquick (I didn't use soy grits though) from Linda Sues site. I cubed it and dried it in a low oven, sauteed celery, leeks, garlic in clarified butter, add whatever herbs, I like tarragon, add cubes of mock cornbread, moisten with broth add whatever add-ins water chestnuts, pecans, and a few dehydrated cranberries (no sugar) is what I used toss lightly as to not break it up. bake till crispy 30 mins or so in a 325-350 oven.

I have never really used a recipe...I just make it the way my Mom always did. It's mostly to taste...but I'll do my best to tell you how I make it.

Thaw out your turkey and remove the neck and giblets...I do this the day before and add about 2 pounds of chicken wings to the mix. They add a lot of flavor.

Put the turkey and chicken in a stock pot with about two to three quarts of water and a couple of chopped onions, chopped celery, chopped garlic, a little sage, salt and pepper. Boil for several hours until the chicken and turkey bones are getting soft adding water as needed. Strain the broth and place the broth it in the frig. to use to make your stuffing and gravy. You can pick the meat off the bones and use it to make chicken salad.

Also the day before...Bake your cornbread and cut it up into cubes and place it on a cookie sheet in a very slow oven to dry out...cool and put in a bag for storage.

To make your stuffing chop up a large onion and several stalks of celery and put them in a pan with some butter...cook them until they are pretty soft. Put as much cornbread cubes in a bowl as you need to make your stuffing and heat your broth...it doesn't need to be hot just good and warm. Add the cooked onions and celery to the cornbread along several beaten raw eggs and enough broth to make a mix that resembles a thick cake batter. Season with salt, pepper and sage to taste.

Turn into a casserole dish and bake in a 350° oven until set and the dressing is as firm as you like. It usually takes about 1 hour to get it the way we like it. It will form a crust on the top but still be moist inside.

I'm thinking that you will be happy with this one as well...I served it with supper last night to my non-low carb family and no body noticed that it wasn't real cornbread.

ladeeda 11-19-2009 01:37 PM

Off topic...MsWoods, your stats are amazing and inspiring 8-) I'm sending you super positive thoughts, hoping that what I send out comes back many-fold. Dee.

MsWoods 11-19-2009 01:40 PM

Thanks ladeeda :)

I have been looking all day for some kind of bread type thing to make for stuffing and I think I'm going to give up. I've printed some things out to try but I'm not optimistic.

ladeeda 11-20-2009 12:42 PM

There is a recipe on this site called "Chicken and Stuffing" that I make with turkey. There is no "bread" in it. BUT it tastes just like stuffing. This year my gluten free Father in law will be sharing it with me. It truly is delish. Dee.

MsWoods 11-20-2009 12:44 PM

Yeah it just wouldn't be the same for me for Thanksgiving. I forgot to post, but we are going to make a biscuit stuffing with carbquick biscuits so we will see how those turn out.

PlaZma - that sounds great, especially with the sage sausage! Just put sage sausage on my list as a matter of fact.:cool:

We used carbquick biscuits. I reccomend it. It was awesome. I did not gain either.
