Thanksgiving Isn't Complete Until Walnut Raisin Stuffing is Served

Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


I'm kind of embarrassed to admit, but I have never made stuffing from scratch. With so much other food prep to do on Thanksgiving, it's just been easier for me to buy the boxed mixes to save time. My in-laws hosted Thanksgiving dinner last year and the stuffing was out of this world good. Jason and I couldn't stop talking about how good it was, even on the drive home. I vowed that this year, I didn't care what else I had going on, I was making my own dang stuffing. I found this Raisin Walnut Stuffing recipe on Golden Blossom Honey and was pretty intrigued with the ingredients. What really sold me was how little prep I actually had to do to put it together, so it wasn't going to take up a lot of extra kitchen time on Thanksgiving. 

Walnut Raisin Stuffing

There are so many wonderful textures in this dish: crispy bread bits, crunchy walnuts, and soft raisins, onions and celery. This recipe is going to be a family favorite for years to come!

Ingredients
6 cups stale white bread, cubed
1 cup raisins
1/4 cup brandy
6 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup celery, diced
1/2 cup onion, diced
2 Tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
2 cups walnuts, chopped
chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste

    1. Who wants to spend more time than necessary in the kitchen when everyone will have all the food gobbled down in 20 minutes anyway?

  6. That looks interesting - different than any stuffing I've seen before. Don't feel bad - I've never made stuffing either - homemade or boxed!! My mom has always fixed it - I need to get her recipe so that one day I can make it!! My husband's family had a completely different way of making dressing, and it took a little getting used to - but it was good in it's own way. My husband doesn't have that recipe either. His dad always fixed it and he passed away a few years ago, so don't know if we'll ever get it. :( I do know he used stale hushpuppies as the base instead of bread.

    1. Stale hushpuppies sound awesome as a base! I am always for trying out of the box recipes like that. Except one time my mom made a cranberry relish stuffing that was just plain nasty. I have never told anyone that I hated a dish before, just quietly scooped whatever I didn't like into the trash. That stuffing she made though, I simply said "Don't ever make this again!" lol. It was that bad!

  14. I am not huge fan of raisins but I think I could try this for sure. I usually make everything from scratch just the way mama and grandma use to make it all. Down to the gravy and pie crust.

  15. Wow I'd never think to do something like this! Our stuffing is pretty boring, but I really like it. We could use a change though, and this looks like it would be really delicious! - Jeanine
