A Big Little Recipe has the smallest-possible ingredient list and big everything else: flavor, creativity, wow factor. Psst—we don't count water, salt, black pepper, and certain fats (specifically, 1/2 cup or less of olive oil, vegetable oil, and butter), since we're guessing you have those covered. Today, we’re making a Thanksgiving-ready stuffing.
357 days ago, we published this column’s debut stuffing, which we called, without any hyperbole or humor, “shockingly simple”. The shocking part referred to all the classic components that the recipe straight-up skipped, like sautéed onions and celery, and toasted nuts and dried fruit, and cured meat and leafy greens.
