Stuffin’ Muffins Recipe


In this post I’ll be sharing an easy Stuffin’ Muffins Recipe.

In the south, we eat dressing. For this recipe Dressing Muffins just doesn’t have a good ring to it, so we’re calling these Stuffin’ Muffins. Yes much better!

Stuffin’ muffins are so simple to make. A semi-homemade side using boxed stuffing mix. If you don’t have a large gathering that requires a full pan of Southern Cornbread Dressing , this is a good alternative. It’s even perfect for everyday meals.

Here are the Ingredients you’ll need:
Celery, diced (2 stalks)
Onion, diced (half large onion)
1 box Stove Top Stuffing (any flavor)
Chicken Stock
1 large Egg, lightly beaten
Dash Salt and Black Pepper

In a small skillet add 1 tbs butter, diced celery and onions, salt and pepper and saute until translucent.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a small mixing bowl add contents of 1 box of Stove Top Stuffing, add the sauteed vegetables and butter, chicken stock, and egg. Mix well to combine. 

Spray 6 cups of a muffin tin and add stuffing mix, about a quarter cup to each section.  Makes 6 muffins. 

Bake at 350 degrees 13-15 minutes, or a little longer if you prefer more of a crunch.

I have made these for the past few Thanksgivings....I double the recipe for 12 muffins. They are easy to put together, don't require much baking time and have been well received by all. If I want to make a large dish of stuffing I'll go the home-made route, but when I want a less-fuss recipe that tastes great I love the convenience of these! Thanks for the recipe!
