If there’s one thing that every holiday spread needs it’s stuffing! The one thing about stuffing… Everyone makes it different. In the past we shared with you a tasty classic homemade stuffing recipe. While that is still a go to recipe for us, sometimes you just want to mix it up. For that, I give you My Man’s Easy Chorizo Stuffing!
Now as the name suggests, this is another recipe that My Man actually came up with… he just loves to cook, and I love to be his taste tester. This is a really fast stuffing to put together, so you can make it on it’s own or in addition to your more traditional stuffing.
What you need for your Easy Chorizo Stuffing:
- 6oz Chorizo
- 1 Loaf of French Bread
- Basil (about 5 leaves)
- 1/2 of a Small Onion
- 1 Egg
- 1.5C Chicken Stock
Making your Easy Chorizo Stuffing:
Start by dicing your onion and giving your basil a rough chop. Brown your chorizo and remove any excess grease. Also, cube up your french bread.
Sautee your onions and measure out your chicken stock.
Add your bread, chorizo, basil, onion, egg, and a pinch of salt into your baking dish. Then slowly add in your chicken stock as you lightly toss the bread. You want it to be wet but not dripping. Your hands work great for this. If you prefer a spoon make sure not to squish your bread! (You may have some liquid left over depending on they dryness of the bread)
Place into an oven at 350 degrees for 35-40 mins or until the tops are golden brown.
Take it out and enjoy this oh so tasty side dish that is sure to please your crowd!The chorizo will give it a slight heat and the basil adds in the savory making this such a tasty dish along side of any meal.
