Bread Stuffing with Leeks, Bacon, and Apple
Why This Recipe Works
Using ordinary sandwich bread “staled” in a low oven soaked up more liquid and made for a better-tasting bread stuffing recipe. To infuse the stuffing with meaty turkey flavor, we browned turkey wings on the stovetop, then used the same pan to sauté the aromatics. When we placed the stuffing in a baking dish, we arranged the seared wings on top to get every last bit of turkey juice and fat to render. Finally, placing the baking dish on a baking sheet protected the bottom layer against the oven’s heat.
