Crispy Fried Onion Stuffing is my recipe  of the day. I made this  up as a change of pace from  my usual stuffing recipes.

This recipe  incorporates canned French Fried  Onions as a topper and  some  onion seasonings in the mix.I really liked it and am  sure you enjoy it as well.

As far as stuffings go  when baked outside of the  bird,  they can be  light on  flavor. But you won’t have to worry about this at all here. In fact, you couldn’t  achieve the  same flavor inside the bird.  For one thing,   it  wouldn’t have that crunchy topping.

I still like to serve this  with gravy.  And it will go with turkey, chicken, ham or roast pork as well as pan fried pork chops. It makes a nice pan full  but you can easily chop that back  to a square pan.

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley
