Everything Bagel Stuffing

This stuffing is everything!

Now I am a traditional girl, especially when it comes to holiday menu items. But…every now and again…along comes a recipe that pushes me outside of my set side dishes! (And, let’s be honest—when bacon is on the ingredient list, it’s hard to resist!) So give this new stuffing a try—I bet you’ll love it!

Everything Bagel Stuffing
3-4 Everything bagels
Red onion
1 Tbsp. butter
12 slices of cooked bacon, chopped
3 cups chicken broth
2 eggs
Salt and pepper
½ cup chopped parsley

Slice the bagels into cubes and place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring the pieces once. Chop the red onion and sauté in butter. In a large bowl, combine 3 cups of chicken broth, 2 eggs, and salt and pepper. Whisk together and add in the toasted bagel pieces, chopped bacon, sautéed onion, and ½ cup of chopped parsley. Mix and let stand for 15 minutes, and then transfer to a greased baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes at 375 degrees, and serve hot!

Enjoy!

Go ahead – ask the Butcher!

I can’t tell you how many times I get stuck in a rut with meal-planning. I tend to cook the same ol’ things because I know the recipes are tried and true. Well, I finally started going out of my comfort zone with some home menus…and realized that I needed some expert help! Did you know that the folks behind the counters at Food City are there for just that? Thanks to meat masters like Michael Cooper, I’ve taken my kitchen knowledge to a whole new level! So next time you’re doing your shopping, stop by and strike up a conversation—you learn something new every day!
