I am getting a head start this year….September and October flew by and I know that November will too.   So I am getting a jump start on my holiday preparations. I have my Thanksgiving menu in rough draft form and I am stocking up on Christmas gifts, thinking about decorations and plans.

Since stuffing is my favorite Thanksgiving dish, I have been playing around with a few different recipes.  I like to keep the stuffing somewhat traditional but then add a few extras in for flair and adventure.    Lately, I have bee pretty obsessed with making curries so I thought a curry stuffing might be a fun idea.

I always like to have mushrooms in my stuffing-to give a nice texture without the meat. And, caramelized onions make everything taste amazing. Not to mention, as you are preparing this your home will smell like heaven.

To me mushrooms remind me of hunting for them with my dad in the Fall in Washington state…..they just seem like the perfect fall food.

Since, my family is such an odd assortment of eaters, recipes that are veggie adaptable are good to have on hand.  This year we will be hosting a vegan, vegetarian, a gluten intolerant, and a friend that is doing the Paleo diet. Not to mention the regular meat-eaters! Not a problem here—this recipe can be easily adapted for  vegetarians….by using the mushroom broth (water remaining after the dehydrated mushrooms are rehydrated) instead of the turkey broth.


Let me know what you think if you decide to make this stuffing…I think you, your family and friends will enjoy it.

Curry Spiced Carmelized Onion and Mushroom Stuffing
Ingredients
  • ¾ onion
  • 3 tablespoon I Can't Believe Its Not Butter Sticks
  • 1 cup Dehydrated Gourmet Mushrooms
  • 1½ cup turkey or mushroom broth
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
Instructions
  1. ) Caramelize the onion. In a small pan, on low heat, melt "I Can't Believe Its Not Butter" and add the onions. Cook over low heat for about 30 minutes. The smell will be unbearably good!
  2. ) While the onions are caramelizing, rehydrate the mushrooms (follow the directions on the package that you are using). If you do not have turkey broth, save the mushroom broth for use later in the stuffing.
  3. ) **At this point, if you are going to be cooking the stuffing right away, heat the oven to 350 degrees. Otherwise, when you are ready to cook you can get the oven ready.**
    After the onions are caramelized, add the mushrooms and celery and allow to cook for another 10 minutes.
  4. ) Add the bread crumbs and curry powder to the pan and toss well with the onions, mushrooms and celery. Pour turkey or mushroom broth over the mixture and mix.
  5. ) Bake for 20 minutes. Serve with turkey, pork, or just a big plate by itself.
Notes
I did all of this in one pan.....my favorite cast iron beast.  I was able to caramelize, saute and bake and only dirty the one dish.  If you don't have an oven safe pan, just use a frying pan and then transfer the mixture to a oven safe pan before baking.
