Oh god this turned out so fucking delicious. I just want to eat it forever. Seriously. I have a problem with stuffing. Om nom nom. Is it wrong to make stuffing for every holiday? Like maybe for the 4th of July?
1 pound of whole wheat bread crumbs
1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
2 eggs, whisked
4 tablespoons melted butter, unsalted
½ cup Riesling
10 pieces of cooked pepper bacon, sliced into bite sizes
½ of a medium sweet onion, chopped
1 small fennel bulb, chopped
½ oz fresh parsley, chopped
2 teaspoons of fresh thyme
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon fresh fennel fronds, chopped
2 cups Turkey Stock—homemade will make ALL the difference
Combine all ingredients in a giant bowl. Refrigerate covered for at least an hour, or preferably overnight.
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Throw it all into a baking dish and cook, uncovered, for half an hour. Cover with tin foil and bake for a further 30 minutes.
Try not to eat the whole thing in a single setting.
