Instant Stuffing Mix

I don't ever eat stuffing that's made inside a turkey- it's one of the most common ways to get food poisoning over the holidays. But it also doesn't feel right to eat the kind out of a box either (although it is pretty tasty). As a compromise, I figured out how to make my own stuffing mix to cook in a pot. No chemicals and no salmonella either!

Stuffing Mix (single use)

1 teaspoon onion flakes
1 teaspoon parsley
1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon sage
1/8 teaspoon paprika

What else you'll need

2 slices stale bread cut in cubes
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons butter

Combine mix with water and butter in a small saucepan and simmer.

Add bread cubes and stir, then turn off the heat and leave the pot covered for a few minutes.

Remove lid and fluff with a fork.

I served my stuffing with chicken drumsticks, baked potatoes, green beans and carrots. It was delicious.
