Experience the delectable tradition of my family’s cherished Thanksgiving stuffing balls—a culinary legacy passed down from my grandmother. With a delightful contrast of crispy exteriors and irresistibly soft interiors, these stuffing balls present a delightful departure from the usual casserole-dish dressing. While they undeniably elevate the festive atmosphere alongside your Thanksgiving centerpiece, they also stand as a perfect accompaniment to everyday roasted chicken or succulent pork chops.
- 1 cup Finely Chopped Celery
- ½ cup Chopped Parsley
- ½ tbsp Ground Sage
- 1 ½ tsp Dried Thyme Leaves
- 1 tsp Kosher Salt
- 1 tsp Black Pepper
- 6 cups Toasted/Chopped Low Carb Bread
- 6 cups Cornbread Stuffing
- 1 Large Egg, Slightly Beaten
- 1 can Chicken Broth
How to Craft these Culinary Delights:
Begin by preheating your oven to a cozy 375 degrees and prepare a baking pan with a light mist of nonstick baking spray, setting the stage for the gastronomic adventure to come.
In a sizable skillet over medium heat, let the aroma of sautéed onions dance for 10 minutes in a buttery embrace. Introduce celery to this aromatic symphony, stirring in parsley, sage, thyme, salt, and pepper. After 5 minutes of flavorful alchemy, remove the pan from the stove, allowing the fragrant concoction to take center stage.
In a grand bowl, unite the toasted and chopped lo-carb bread with the cornbread stuffing, creating a harmonious blend. Introduce a beaten egg and ¾ cup of the chicken broth to this gastronomic symphony, stirring the elements into a chorus of savory delight. The sautéed onions, celery, and their aromatic companions take their place in this culinary masterpiece.
With deft hands, fashion these elements into small, tantalizing balls, placing them with care on the prepared baking sheet. The stage is set for a 20-minute act in the 375-degree oven, where these stuffing balls undergo a transformative journey to crisp perfection.
As the curtains rise for the final act, gently pour the remaining chicken broth over the stuffing balls, ensuring a succulent finish. Return them to the oven for a glorious encore, baking at 375 degrees for an additional 15 minutes.
The culinary masterpiece is complete—golden-brown, crispy on the outside, and irresistibly soft within. These stuffing balls are not just a Thanksgiving delight but a year-round indulgence that brings warmth and flavor to any meal. Enjoy the symphony of tastes and the echoes of family traditions in every bite!
