One would think that National Stuffing Day would just naturally be on Thanksgiving, right? And, well, it falls close enough to it that it will certainly occasionally actually fall on Thanksgiving. But if Thanksgiving comes later - or earlier - and you've got a hankering, here ya go!
1/4 c. vegan butter
3/4 c. chopped celery
1-1/2 c. water
One package of your favorite stuffing mix
1/3 c. dried cranberries
1/4 c. walnut pieces
Melt the butter in a skillet, and saute the celery until not quite tender. Stir in the water and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in the stuffing mix, cranberries and walnuts. You can add a cup of vegan shredded cheese, if you like.
At this point, you have some options. You can make individual servings by mounding the mix into muffin cups, or you can pour the entire mix into a baking dish.
Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.
One thing I've read about, but still haven't tried, is to take your leftover stuffing and heat up in a waffle iron, and serve with breakfast. If you happen to have leftover stuffing, maybe try this. Let me know if you do and what you think. Eventually I will remember to try this!
