Stuffing is my favorite side dish at Thanksgiving! Hands down. No contest. My Mom makes the best and really the only right stuffing in the world. You know how Mom’s are like that. Well, thank goodness she taught me how to make it. But sometimes I’m in a hurry and don’t have time to make the real deal. Shortcut Savory Stuffing is the only other stuffing that is worth eating in my opinion! I love that it is simple to make and still tastes so savory and delicious! Try it and see if anyone catches on! Your secret is safe with me!!
Here are the ingredients that you are going to need. And butter. Never be without butter!
You can use any brand of stuffing mix. I just happened to have this one in my pantry.
Simmer 1/2 of the amount of water called for on recipe, an equal amount of evaporated milk and butter in a saucepan. You can replace the water with low sodium chicken broth if you want, for a little extra flavor.
Once the liquid is boiling add the stuffing mix, sage and cheddar cheese. Trust me…it’s the ticket! Mix it altogether and finish according to package directions.
Spoon stuffing in a greased dish and broil until the top is browned. It gives the stuffing that crispy top and leaves the rest perfectly moist. As in most things, cheese really sends this stuffing over the top.
