Welcome to Mythical Kitchen Picks, the series in which the culinary experts from Mythical Kitchen tell you all about their favorite foods and ingredients. Since Thanksgiving (aka the biggest grocery store-centric holiday of the year) is just around the corner, we asked the Mythical Kitchen team for their top time-saving products for prepping Thanksgiving dinner. First up is Mythical Chef Josh Scherer who is here to tell you about everyone’s favorite side-in-a-box.
Josh’s Thanksgiving Pick: Stove Top Stuffing
Stuffing is the perfect side dish and it should be eaten all-year round. Stovetop is the perfect version of that perfect side dish, which means that it, too, should be eaten all year round. This is your official permission slip to buy up as many boxes of Stove Top stuffing while it’s available this Thanksgiving and eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and your many various snacks throughout the day.
There are many flavors available, and, rest assured, I have tried them all. You may be tempted to get the turkey-flavored box to conform to the Thanksgiving flavor profile, but the chicken is where it’s at. All your favorite chemicals make an appearance: monosodium glutamate, disodium inosinate, and disodium guanylate, and they’re playing the freakin’ hits, man.
Many would-be kingslayers have come for the boxed stuffing crown—Mrs. Cubbison puts up a good fight—but nothing tops the pure, nostalgic simplicity of Stove Top’s wet-bread-plus-animal-flavored-powder equation. Even when I make my stuffing from scratch, which I am often pressured to do by loved ones, I try to get the flavor as close as possible to Stove Top. Say yes to convenient deliciousness this holiday season. Say yes to Stove Top stuffing.
