Stuffing: the Perfect Side Dish for Thanksgiving

No Thanksgiving dinner is complete without stuffing, one of the annual holiday’s signature dishes. Although most know stuffing as the filling found inside the Thanksgiving turkey, stuffing also tastes great on its own! When not used to fill poultry like turkey, vegetables, or even eggs, stuffing is commonly served as a side dish.

Delicious, homemade stuffing is usually made from a mixture of breadcrumbs, eggs, butter, and vegetables like onions and celery. Spices and herbs are also added for more flavor. Although, some variations of stuffing also have sausages and other meats. You can even throw in some tofu and make it a vegetarian-friendly dish! If you’re curious about what vegetarian-friendly stuffing tastes like, we have a Grand Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe you might like to try.

To many, stuffing is the ultimate comfort side that cannot be found missing from the dining table during Thanksgiving dinner. Not only does it taste scrumptious, it’s also incredibly hearty and filling as well. Its savory flavors as well as the heaviness of the breadcrumbs make it a go-to Thanksgiving meal.

Handy Tips in Making the Best Scrambled Eggs

If you want your scrambled eggs soft and fluffy, first and foremost, remember to use a nonstick pan. Eggs have a tendency to stick to cast-iron pans. So, to avoid wasting eggs and time scrubbing them off the pan, use your trusty non-stick skillet pan. 

Tip: Use a non-stick skillet to save your eggs and your time from having to scrape them off the pan. Don’t use milk and cream, since fresh eggs, olive oil, and butter is enough to make your eggs soft and fluffy. Always cook your eggs slowly in low heat to avoid dry eggs!

The next tip is to skip the milk and cream. These ingredients won’t necessarily make your scrambled eggs fluffy or creamy. Using fresh, good quality eggs, olive oil and some butter will do the job just fine.

And last but not the least, always cook your eggs slowly in low heat. Make sure to preheat your non-skillet over medium-high heat first. Turn the heat down to low once the beaten egg mixture has been poured to make sure the eggs don’t dry out when cooking. 

One technique you can try is to remove the pan from the heat while stirring the eggs until curds form. The eggs will continue to cook even when the pan is removed. That’s because eggs, like other protein-rich foods, continue cooking in their own heat.
