Things I Like: Stove Top Stuffing

Many of you, no doubt, can't picture Thanksgiving without turkey and stuffing and cranberry sauce, and yams (or sweet potatoes) with melted mini-marshmallows on top — but I grew up in a household that eschewed such traditions. I think the closest we ever came was one year when my mom served up an imitation turkey "soyloaf." It was awful. (And no, we weren't vegetarians; this was just an especially dysfunctional aspect of my immediate family.) So, I never really understood what Turkey Day was supposed to be about — until I went away to college — and now, I can't imagine having it any other way.

I don't remember who first introduced me to Kraft's infamous red box, but it's, um — let's just call it a guilty pleasure. My all-time favorite flavor (San Francisco Sourdough) has been missing-in-action for about two years now (boo!), but, while shopping at my local Safeway, I picked up a Lower Sodium Chicken variety I didn't recall seeing before.

I took a certain liberty with the package directions, and used unsalted butter as the "spread." Other than the unsurprising "needs salt," it was still quite edible. (Obviously, you're not supposed to do this.)

I think they're on the right track here, and maybe we'll see some other Lower Sodium stuffing mixes in the future. (Oh, and if the fine folks at Kraft Foods are reading this, feel free to lose the HFCS and MSG... I won't miss either one.)
