Vegetarian no-bake stuffing

    25 min

    I invented this recipe because I found it impossible to fit anything more in the oven when cooking a big family feast, therefore this stuffing is made on the hob and tastes just as delicious. Great served alongside Christmas turkey, roasties and all the other yummy side dishes.

    2 was a bit too buttery, though. next time i would use at the most 3/4 c. also, i baked it for about 20 min at 350 after i cooked it on the stovetop to make it a bit crispier.  -  08 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this stuffing as I had a ton of breadcrumbs & no idea what to do with them! We eat a loaf produced by Warburtons which contains lots of poppy, sunflower & sesame seeds & also millet, which made my personal version of this stuffing very tasty indeed. I also substituted a quarter of the butter with virgin olive oil which gave a Meditteranean twist. This was the first time I've ever made my own stuffing & was a simple, easy recipe to start with. It went very well with the roast chicken we ate, but my other half says he prefers the shop-bought stuff No pleasing some people!  -  12 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Nice flavor and nice to have the veggies in the stuffing. My boys love stuffing so when I can get an extra veggie in I'm a happy mama.  -  15 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
