Let cool, and stuff bird
Eva’s Tip: I like to stuff under the skin of the breast and thigh, that way there is lots of stuffing to go around.
If your bird come with liver, scrap the liver with a knife to remove the blood vessels and add to your stuffing mixture right after the onions brown. This gives another level of flavour and reminds Alfonz of his mm’s recipe.
Substitute walnuts for any other nut just make sure no one has nut allergies.
Also sausage to your mixture, finely chopped for an interesting take on this recipe.
Raisins, cranberries, and dried apricots can be added as well, however, our family is not so keen.
