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!
- 8 cups soft bread cubes (I use potato bread)
- 3/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 cup chopped onions
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 1/2 cup chicken broth or vegetable broth
- 1/4 cup half and half
- 1/2 cup chestnuts, boiled and chopped
- Saute onion and celery in butter until softened. Add parsley.
- Add broth, half and half and wine. Add chestnuts.
- Stir in bread and mix.
- Pour into 8x8-inch buttered baking dish. Bake uncovered at 350 for 350 minutes.
