This is awesome! The $5 Dinner Mom is publishing a simple holiday entertaining guide to make the upcoming season as stress-free and fun as possible! In the same fashion as her cookbooks and blog, she addresses the proper budget, items that are necessary and some that aren't, making the most of coupons and grocery store finds, delicious recipes for left-overs, and (my favorite) "the perfect plan to have everything cooked using only one oven!" Included are 30 recipes, from sides to desserts, like this Cranberry and Celery Stuffing -- even for Stove-Toppers like myself, I can handle this recipe!
Cranberry and Celery Stuffing
A burst of sweet-tart and crunch make for a wonderful addition to the traditional stuffing mix.
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 small onion, chopped
1 14 oz. package herb seasoned stuffing mix
2 cups thinly sliced celery
1 cup dried cranberries
3 green onions, thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 2 quart casserole dish, or 9x9 inch glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Bring 2 cups of water and the butter and chopped onion to a boil, then toss in the stuffing mix until moistened.
Remove from the heat and cover. Let sit for 5 minutes.
Stir in the celery slices, dried cranberries and green onions.
Spread the stuffing mixture into the prepared baking dish. Cover with foil.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Then remove the foil and continue baking 10 to 15
minutes, or until top is golden brown.
Serve Herb and Celery Stuffing.
Makes 6 to 8 side dish servings.
