Getting Started with Stuffing Recipes
When you’re thinking about making a delicious stuffed dish, questions like, ‘what is the best kind of stuffing’, ‘what is traditional stuffing made of’, and maybe even ‘how to make stuffing’ will likely cross your mind. Well, let’s get to some answers.
When it comes to what you can use to make a flavourful stuffing, your options are as numerous as the ingredients you have available in your kitchen. There are so many different types of stuffings – some use fresh or dried fruits, others use breadcrumbs, some are slightly sweet while others are spicy.
Furthermore, the stuffing you choose to use also depends on what it is you will be stuffing. For example, if you’re stuffing lamb you may choose a more salty and savoury stuffing like in this Spinach and Feta Stuffed Lamb recipe. If you’re stuffing vegetables though, you might make a creamier stuffing using cheese or soya mince, or incorporate some grains like quinoa to add some crunch.So when it comes to the best kind of stuffing, it’s really up to your tastebuds and the type of dish you intend to create.
