How To Make Stuffing

Oh yes! Stuffing, dressing, call it what you will, it’s usually delicious no matter who makes it. It’s probably my favorite food to eat during the Holidays! But, if you’re new to cooking you’re likely wondering how to make stuffing? The easy answer is Stove Top! ( hey … it is pretty good! ) but why not make your own?

If you want to make from scratch, dry out a one pound loaf of good grain bread by toasting in a 325 degrees oven for 8-10 minutes, then cool and chop. OR..since pre-packaged bread cubes are readily available, do what we do and use those. There is no real difference in taste and they’re such a time saver!
By the way, it’s much safer to make stuffing in a casserole dish than inside a turkey, but that’s your choice.

Who says you can’t enjoy stuffing with a ham or beef tenderloin too, or for that matter, meatloaf?

Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread is actually a broad term for a lot of different types of bread made in Ireland. The Irish used bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) rather than yeast as the leavening agent for their breads, thus it became known as soda bread. There are basic recipes that can be added to and modified to make all sorts of fancy breads with nuts or fruit, or just a basic hearty, healthy bread. A basic recipe for Irish Soda Bread is below.

Irish Soda Bread

Being from the American South, I was raised on cooking with buttermilk and in iron skillets. I’m pretty sure that Southern traditional method of cooking came from our Irish ancestors. That would seem the case when looking at how the Irish cook soda bread. Even though you can use other liquids, buttermilk is what is recommended. And even though there are several methods of cooking the bread, cooking it in an iron skillet is the preferred method.

The basic bread recipe is below. You can use different types of liquids, flour and add fruits or nuts to make it as different as you want to make it.

Banana Nut Bread

You want your bananas looking pretty brown, never use a banana that has any green left on the peel. This recipe will only make one loaf so you will have to double or triple it if you want more.
