Chestnut Stuffing #SundaySupper

Chestnut Stuffing

Chestnut Stuffing goes great with turkey or beef. Chunks of chestnuts, wine and cream make this stuffing over the top!

Welcome to another fun addition of Sunday Supper!

This week it’s all about the side dishes. Without these tasty tidbits that Thanksgiving or holiday dinner is just another turkey.
We’re big on stuffing at my house. I make some version of stuffing all year round. Crusty white bread, cornbread or my favorite, potato bread breaks up the pasta and rice rotation rut.
Chestnuts give this stuffing a holiday flair. Boiled, chestnuts take on a soft, sweet flavor. Easy peasy to cook too!
I cut an “X” on the flattest side before boiling. Cover chestnuts with water and bring to a boil. Cook chestnuts about 15 minutes until soft. Cool and peel.
Chestnuts add a bit of texture, Vitamin C, folates, B vitamins and are gluten-free. These nuts are also a good source of fiber and monounsaturated fats.
So dig in and enjoy a big spoonful. After all it is the Holidays!

  1. Chestnut stuffing is the best! Frankly, I thought it was just something those of us who grew up in Japan knew about…So glad you are sharing this scrumptious recipe, Cindy!

    Chestnut stuffing was the one my mum always made for Christmas. Although it wasn’t quite the same as this but I know I’d love this too.
