Big Green Egg Seafood Stuffing

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and it is time to start menu planning. This is my take on a classic Thanksgiving side using seafood instead of sausage. This pairs perfectly with my turkey and ham recipes. Now sit back, grab a glass of your favorite Pinot Gris, and enjoy this post for Big Green Egg Seafood Stuffing.

For this recipe I am featuring Bayouish rub from Dizzy Pig Seasonings. The seafood inside of this stuffing paired with the homemade croutons fuse well with the New Orleans inspired flavors in this rub. 

First, prep 4 Tbsp of butter, 4 cloves of minced garlic, 1/2 white onion (diced), 4 celery stalks (diced), 4 carrots (diced), and set to the side. 

Next, dice 1 Lbs of shrimp, measure out 1/2 Lbs of crab meat, and cube 1 baguette (toasted for 15 minutes to make your croutons). 

Finally, measure out 3 cups chicken broth, 2 large eggs, 1/2 cup whipping cream, 2 Tbsp Bourbon, 3 Tbsp Dizzy Pig Bayou-ish Seasoning, 1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley, 1 tsp hot sauce

Setup your Big Green Egg for indirect cooking using the ConvEGGtor. Light your lump charcoal and preheat to 350°F with a Lodge Cast Iron Dutch Oven sitting on the grill grate.

When the Big Green Egg is at temp, melt the butter in the cast iron Dutch oven then add the carrots, celery, and onions. Cook for 4-5 minutes until slightly softened. Add the garlic, cook 1 minute longer.

Add the chopped shrimp and cook until they just turn pink. Stir in the crab meat, then remove the pot from the heat. Stir in the toasted bread cubes.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the broth, eggs, whipping cream, bourbon, spices, parsley, and hot sauce. Pour over the bread and seafood mixture. Stir until combined.

Transfer all the stuffing into a buttered 12″ Lodge cast iron pan, then cover with aluminum foil and place in the Big Green Egg set to 350°F.

Cook 30 minutes covered, then remove the foil and bake another 30-40 minutes until the top has slightly toasted.
