Ummm...where do you get protein out of that?

I occasionally make a Crock Pot recipe that calls for Stove Top stuffing (chicken flavor), 4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts or thighs, sour cream and a can of cream of chicken soup.

Don't think I've ever just eaten a box of Stove Top as a meal, though.

Pepperidge Farm's Herb Stuffing makes a great casserole topping. Even green bean casserole is made better. Just mix the fried onion bits into the green beans and use the pepperidge farm's stuffing as the topping.

Also, if not placed into something, it's not stuffing, it is dressing.

I'll snack on that stuff straight out of the box sometimes.

Bell Stuffing is better.

But the one thing those lack when you just cook it by itself is all the turkey juices and fat getting mixed into it. Plus you don't have the chitlins mixed in.

If whipping together some onion, celery, and bread crumbs into a bowl with butter and cooking it for an hour is just entirely too much effort for you in your cooking endeavors, then Stovetop Stuffing is a perfectly fine alternative.

Eating it straight out of the box is an early sign of serious brain disorders, though. Get help.

Yeah, I'll go with 'abomination' on this one.

My from-scratch mushroom dressing will beat the pants off of Stove Top any day, and it doesn't take that much more effort to make.  And I'm not even a very good cook.

Stove Top is just stale bread with salt and dubious green flakes of some kind..

Subby "makes" it first?  Ohh, look at me, I'm super awesome I make things before shoveling it down my face hole.

Really? Stove top is literally just boiling water. Boil 1 1/2 cups water, dump it in the pan and stir.
 
2018-01-02 09:14:50 PM  
I find it a little too salty and mushy for my taste, it's better if you dice up about 4-5 slices of bread and add it in.

My wife has a meatloaf recipe that uses the sage flavor that is fantastic.

Other than that, eh.
 
2018-01-02 09:25:09 PM  
I'm with subby, that stuff is delicious.

Okay, you're probably right for calling me out on that, but here's the difference.
Stove Top:

1.       Boil water.
2.       Add Stove Top and turn off heat.
3.       Wait for the inevitable sadness to result.

I'll admit I haven't made Stove Top for a while, but IIRC that's the approximate steps you take.
My recipe:

1.       Cut up vegetables. (Celery, onion, green onion, mushroom)
2.       Melt butter, mix in vegetables and spices
3.       Cut up bread you bought and never ate
4.       Beat eggs, mix with bread bits
5.       Add eggs to bread bits
6.       Add vegetable/spice/butter mix to bread/egg bits
7.       Bake until happiness occurs.

So, yes, you are correct.  Stove Top is easier than actual food, and if you're coming home from a hard day at work your priorities are different.
However, if the question is, Is Stove Top Delicious or Not rather than fark me, I worked all day and I just want something to cram down my gullet so I can drown in despair rather than starvation our answers might diverge a biatchopping vegetables and beating eggs isn't that hard.

If you want easy food that isn't a gross box of chemicals you've come to the right place. I am lazy and hate cooking. However, if you mix almost any ingredients in a pan with butter and add some spices you can make a meal. Thanks to grocery stores catering to lazy people and even frozen, you can just toss already cut up stuff in the pan.

Chicken breasts, onion, garam masala (miracle spice), salt and pepper, and butter. Pour over boiled starch (spaghetti, macaroni) and some boiled veg. Add a jar of spaghetti sauce to make spaghetti. Add cheese to make mac and cheese. Change the veg.

I stopped eating boxed mac and cheese and now just melt real cheese in the same butter and milk that the box called for. It takes the same time and no Cheez residue. I have a baked recipe but that's if I want to be fancy.

I'm not a stuffing fan unless it's actually been stuffed up a bird's keister but I'll bet that stirring some old bread cut into cubes with melted butter and some chopped up veg (probably boiled) with some sage and other Thanksgiving spices and then bake would be fine. Add some chicken for protein.

One pan or casserole dish and that's it. Voila! Fresh, non-chemical food.

I want popcorn.

This. WTF, Stove Top? Do you really like that many chemicals?
 
2018-01-02 11:32:50 PM  
If you add a few things to it, you can have a nice dish..Add a little cornmeal, and corn kernels,when you make it.. Then blend some chicken broth and chicken livers/ turkey innards together mix that in, then bake it
for a while..

Never had stuffing out of a box. Stuffing is stuffed inside a bird, baked, and then scooped out. Whatever Stove-Top is isn't stuffing.

While I agree that stuffing from a box is less than optimal, a simple Google search for stuffing brings up hundreds of recipes, none of them require it to actually be put inside a bird. In fact, if you're like most families at Thanksgiving, the stuffing is the best part of the meal. The few cups worth that will fit inside a turkey is hardly enough to go around, and if you bake a chicken, it's maybe one serving at best. Anyone I know who makes their own stuffing always makes it in a separate dish.

Pretty darn satisfying for a 5 minute prep time (microwave directions).

Run it through a food processor, add enough clarified butter to moisten the crumbs. Roll broccoli spears through this "breading," line 'em up on a cookie sheet; bake at 400* til tender-crisp and golden brown.

Tis how I get broccoli in my 4 yr old grandson.

Sorry but no. It's only stuffing if you stuff ot in something. If it's not stuffed into something it's then called dressing.

/either way it's tasty.

You will be stuffing it in your face when you are done, so its stuffing.

Stove Top stuffing added to a .79 packet of Ramen Noodles is AWEsome.

Stove Top stuffing is the base of a great backpack meal.
A foil pouch of chicken, a handful of dried cranberries and the stuffing mix is all you (technically) need.
1/2 stick of butter and a couple of bullion cubes make a good upgrade.
You can cook it in a single pan or just re-hydrate and dig in, depending on the circumstances.
Just add water, makes its own sauce.

/It's amazing what tastes good after miles on the trail
//For breakfast, try adding a Mars bar (or Almond Snickers) to your oatmeal
///why yes, I DO like to eat

That stuff used to come in a canister and I would eat it straight out of the box. It's a holiday staple in our house, although we usually doctor it up with some diced veggies and ground sausage.
