  • Carol Chriss’s Stuffing

    Ingredients:

    • 1 1/2 lbs. hearty white sandwich bread (Arnold Country Classics White Bread), cut into 1/2-in. pieces (16 c.) (or about 10 c. dried bread)
    • 8 TBSP unsalted butter, cut into 8pieces
    • 2 onions, chopped fine
    • 2 celery ribs, chopped fine
    • 1 TBSP poultry seasoning
    • 1 1/2 tsp. salt (reduce to 1 tsp. if using seasoned broth)
    • 1 package of sage, chopped
    • 1/2 c. parsley, chopped
    • 3/4 tsp. pepper
    • 2 1/2 c. – 3 c. chicken broth, to taste (adding more broth will make the stuffing wetter)

    Directions:

    1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 300 degrees. Arrange bread evenly on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove sheet from oven and stir bread to redistribute. Return the sheet to the oven and continue to bake until the bread is light golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes longer. Let cool completely, then transfer to a large bowl. (Cooled bread can be stored in zipper—lock bag for up to 2 days.) Increase oven temperature to 375 degrees.
    2. Melt butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium—low heat. Continue to cook, swirling pan occasionally, until butter is dark golden brown and has a nutty aroma, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer 2 TBSP of browned butter to a small bowl and set aside.
    3. Add onions and celery to the skillet, increase heat to medium, and cook until vegetables are soft and beginning to brown, 10 to 13 minutes. Stir in poultry seasoning, salt, pepper, sage, and parsley, and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add vegetable mixture to bowl with bread.
    4. Add broth to bread mixture and fold to combine. Let sit for 10 minutes. Fold again until broth is fully absorbed. Transfer stuffing to a 13 by 9-inch baking dish and distribute evenly but do not pack down. Drizzle reserved butter evenly over top. Bake until golden brown and crisp on top, 30 to 35 minutes. Transfer the dish to a wire rack and let cool for 15 minutes. Serve.
    5. TO MAKE AHEAD: Before drizzling butter over stuffing in step 4, cover the dish with aluminum foil. Refrigerate stuffing and reserved butter for up to 24 hours. When you want to bake, microwave reserved butter until melted. Remove foil, drizzle butter over stuffing, re—cover dish with foil, and bake for 15 minutes. Uncover and continue to bake until stuffing is heated through and top is golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes longer.

    If you want a more hearty couscous side (pictured above), double the couscous (olive oil, shallots, lemons, couscous, and water/stock) and the dressing.

    Recipe adapted from No Spoon Necessary.

    Ingredients:

    Couscous

    • 2 ½ TBSP olive oil
    • 2 medium shallots – finely diced (about 1/3 heaping cup)
    • 2 large lemons, zested & juiced (1/4 cup juice) (1 TBSP & ½ tsp zest – DIVIDED)
    • 1 ½ c. Israeli pearl couscous
    • 1 ¾ c. stock or water
    • 1 (8 oz.) jar oil-packed julienne sun-dried tomatoes – drained & 2 TBSP oil reserved
    • 1 (14 oz.) can chickpeas, drained & rinsed
    • 3 oz. baby arugula, or more to taste
    • 3 large green onions, thinly sliced
    • 6 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
    • ½ c. fresh herbs, chopped (basil, parsley, cilantro, and/or mint)
    • 3 TBSP toasted pine nuts 
    • Salt & pepper

    Dressing

    • ¼ c. olive oil
    • 1 garlic, minced
    • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
    • 1 tsp. honey

    Directions:

    1. Prepare Dressing:  Add the oil, garlic, Dijon and honey to a small bowl or a mason jar. Add in ¼ c. fresh lemon juice, a scant ½ tsp. zest, ¼ tsp salt and generous pinch of pepper. Whisk until well combined. If using a mason jar, add the lid and seal. Shake the jar until well combined.
    2. Infuse Oil: Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the shallots and 1 heaping TBSP of lemon zest. Let the flavors infuse and sweat the vegetables, stirring, for 2-3 minutes.
    3. Prepare Couscous: Stir in the couscous and increase the heat to medium. Cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until the couscous is lightly toasted and fragrant. Add in the stock and season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a rapid simmer, then immediately reduce heat to a low. Cover the pan tightly with a lid and cook for 10-12 minutes, until the couscous is tender, and liquid is almost all absorbed. Remove from heat.
    4. Stir in sundried tomato oil & cover: Remove cover from couscous. Add the 2 tablespoons of sun-dried tomato oil and stir to combine. Replace cover and set aside (off heat), for about 3-5 minutes, until liquid is completely evaporated. The couscous should be tender, and the mixture should be fluffy, not soupy. Season couscous to taste with salt and pepper; fluff with a fork. Transfer the couscous to a large bowl.
    5. Add dressing: Add half the dressing (about ¼ c.) to the slightly warm couscous and toss well to combine. Set aside to cool completely.
    6. Toss couscous: Once the couscous is cooled, add the chickpeas, arugula, green onions, herbs and half the feta. Toss to combine. Add the remaining dressing. Taste and adjust for seasoning with salt and pepper. (Optional: Cover and refrigerate.)
    7. Serve: Sprinkle couscous with remaining feta and toasted pine nuts. Garnish with lemon wedges if using.
