Making Stuffing on the Stove

Thanks all to the really great recommendations. I'm not sure I will use any of the turkey drippings in the stuffing as there is at least one vegetarian in the room. I plan to make a nice vegetable stock to use in it.

For the focaccia mushroom stuffing, it was a wing, but basically, I got a nice dense sheet of focaccia from Amy's Bread in NY. It's a fairly firm, and thin and is made with rosemary, sea salt, and olive oil. I dried it out on about 150 in the oven for several hours. Then, cubed it. I got two sheets of focaccia which were about 18 by 12. I then chopped two cups of portabellos, six shallots, and added fresh thyme. Two eggs, around 2 cups of vegetable stock and voila. In the oven at 375 for about an hour.

Making Stuffing on the Stove

So, living in NYC, I have a tiny oven that will barely fit my turkey and I'm not sure I would be able to cook stuffing in the oven at the same time. So, I need to be able to cook the stuffing on the stove top. Does anyone have any good recipes or tips or ideas to share? I'm looking to do a focaccia stuffing with mushrooms. And I made one in the oven last year (I was cooking at a friend's place who had two ovens) and it turned out really lovely. Can I just use the same recipe and technique for the stovetop and use a castiron skillet or something?

Thanks guys! Yeah, we went to Mrs. London's for dessert, and it was stellar. I'm excited to try Bloomers! Thanks a bunch!

Actually, what I mean is something that is NOT that expensive, which is the definition most people use for "good restaurant". I want something that has really good food that isn't the usual $45 surf and turf, white table cloth stuff. New York City does that better than anywhere else anyway.

Best Restaurants in Saratoga Springs

My girlfriend, some friends, and I are visiting Saratoga Springs this weekend. My gf and I were there about a year and a half ago and had dinner at The Wine Bar and lunch at The Grey Gelding. We found both enjoyable. We're all from NYC, so our standards for dining are quite high. We would like to find a place that is good and by "good" we don't mean the definition of good most people in the US use (that is, "expensive" and where they call you "sir" every chance they get). I mean really good food. Anything aside from The Wine Bar that you would recommend? Also, any place that allows BYOB would be great.
