Barley and Wild Rice Stuffing
I made turkey one day but had no bread to make stuffing. Though I don't stuff my bird to roast, I just couldn't imagine not having any on the side. So I dug out some things from the pantry and this is the result.
You can use this as stuffing for your bird. Place some loosely in the cavity and roast as desired. When you take the bird out to rest, then transfer the stuffing to a casserole dish and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. If you want a moister stuffing bake tightly covered. For a nice crispy top, take the cover off for the last 5 to 10 minutes.
I also think 1/4 cup of dried cranberries, currants or tart raisins would go nicely in this! Add them to the barley-rice about 20 minutes into simmer.
