Stuffed Monster Heads
Oregano Cumin Pumpkin Stuffing
This unique stuffing is fabulous with chicken, turkey, squash, or even when used to stuff a pumpkin. It is marvelous in my Oregano Cumin Roasted Chicken with Caramelized Pumpkin. You can use any day old bread in this recipe, but my favorites are pumpernickel or a great rustic French bread. Cornbread is also fantastic in this stuffing, or a mixture of French bread and cornbread. Yummy!
1/2 cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons melted butterv 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 coarsely chopped carrots
2 coarsely chopped celery stalks
1 chopped tart apple
2 1/2 cups cubed day old bread
In a large bowl beat the egg. Add the chicken stock, melted butter, pumpkin puree, and spices. Mix well until smooth. Add the carrots, celery, and apple. Toss lightly. Add the bread cubes and toss until the bread is thoroughly coated in the pumpkin mixture. Stuff a chicken as desired, or else place in a well greased casserole and bake for 30 minutes.
