Single-Serving Stuffing Muffins

At our Thanksgiving table stuffing is almost as important as the turkey. These Single-Serving Stuffing Muffins add a new twist to this savory side without changing the traditional flavors.

The individual servings make a nice presentation and might become the talk of the table.

I like to have a couple of extra chef knives or santoku knives for anyone who wants to help chop the onions, carrots and celery.

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped celery
  • 3 carrots, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup chicken stock (if stuffing is dry, add more chicken stock a little at a time)
  • 9 cups soft bread cubes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

  3. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
