Stuffing

One of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes is the stuffing although I make it other times of the year also.  Every year I  make it the same way except that I sometimes cook it in the crockpot since the oven is used for so many other things on that day.   I decided to try something different and substitute cauliflower for the bread.  Use cauliflower instead of bread in your recipe or use my recipe below.  I never actually stuff the turkey – for safety and time reasons.  A stuffed turkey takes longer to cook and the stuffing often does not get heated enough to be safe.  A 9 x 13 pan works well for cooking this stuffing.

1/2 t. dried thyme or 1 1/2 t. fresh thyme leaves

1/4 t black pepper

Mix all ingredients thoroughly.  Bake in a 9 x 12 baking dish at 325 F for about 20 minutes.  Recipe may be doubled.
