Give your Thanksgiving turkey stuffing the tropical flavor of the islands. This cinnamon-spiced poultry stuffing features pineapple, almonds, raisins and water chestnuts.
Tropical stuffing recipe
1 16 ounce loaf bread
1 15 ounce can pineapple chunks in own juice, drained
1 cup chopped celery
1 small onion, diced
1 8 ounce can water chestnuts, drained
1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1/2 cup raisins
1 1/2 tsp. sage
1 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 14 1/2 ounce chicken broth
Cut bread into 1 inch cubes. Place in a large bowl. Add pineapple, celery, onion, water chestnuts, almonds and raisins. Set aside. In a small bowl, stir seasonings with broth. Pour broth evenly over dry ingredients. Toss. Stuff a 10 pound bird just before baking.
Note: This recipe can be used to stuff any poultry you may be serving for the holidays, or you can bake it for 30-45 minutes in a casserole dish. I would be sure to add a little extra moisture to each one if you do this since it won't have the juices from the poultry. Be sure to cover the casserole dish as it's baking.
