Ground beef stuffing for Thanksgiving
What is stuffing? We’d describe it as a Thanksgiving turkey’s favorite side dish. Simply put, it’s a seasoned mixture of bread crumbs, vegetables, and more “stuffed” into the cavity of your favorite holiday bird. Many say stuffing surfaced as a way to extend the life of stale bread. It can have meat or not (you can guess where we stand on that debate), or be simplified and cooked on a stovetop and not inside poultry. Typically, a Thanksgiving stuffing includes sausage in the mix, but we say you switch that sausage out for premium ground beef from Schweid & Sons!
- 1 lb Schweid & Sons Butcher’s Blend ground beef
- 2-3 cups of beef broth
- 2 onions – chopped
- ½ cup of water
- 1-2 cloves of garlic
- 1 egg
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Potato sandwich rolls
Combine half of the onions, broth, and water in a small saucepan. Boil, lower heat, and cook for 10-15 minutes or until onions are soft.
Brown the ground beef in a frying pan with the other half of the uncooked onions. Drain some of the fat and add garlic, salt, and pepper.
Mix the beef mixture, cooked onion and broth liquid, egg, and torn-up pieces of the rolls in a large bowl.
Either put the mixture in a baking dish and bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or stuff inside a turkey and be sure the internal temperature is 165 degrees F once the turkey is cooked.
