You Need Goya Crackers to Make Uneeda Stuffing

The plan this Thanksgiving was for me to make my mother-in-law's stuffing recipe. The recipe calls for Uneeda Biscuits -- I need a what?! I had NEVER heard of Uneeda Biscuits -- and as it turns out the maker, Nabisco, discontinued the popular (or not so popular?) biscuits (a.k.a. crackers) in 2008.

I ONLY found this out because I didn't know what they were so I proceeded to do some online research -- that's when I found out the biscuits don't exist anymore. Lucky for me I found a suitable replacement, thanks to Chefpaulo on the CHOW Food and Cooking Resource Web Page -- CHOW is great resource by the way.

1 12 oz Bag of Goya Crackers crushed (check international aisle)
2 Onions chopped
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Dash of Milk
Dash of Chicken Stock or Broth
Salt & Pepper to taste
  1. Cook chopped onion in Olive Oil until translucent.
  2. Add crushed crackers to cooked onion.
  3. Add Milk and Chicken Stock just to moisten the mixture a little.
  4. Salt & Pepper to taste.
  5. Stuff the turkey just before putting it in the oven and cook the turkey until done -- um, yeah.
I have to say -- this is NOT at all like any stuffing recipe I have ever made in the past. I haven't made it yet, so I'm not willing to vouch for it (YET). I will add more info and pics after I have tried it! Happy Thanksgiving Everyone -- Enjoy!!

did you try the stuffing with the Goya crackers. If so, how was it?

I did try it and unfortunately I did not like it at all. I grew up with bread stuffing that has lots of celery, onion, poultry seasoning ... and butter ... the Goya cracker stuffing just didn't do it for me at all.

can you tell us what is the ratio of the old uneeda to the Goya. We used uneeda in an old stone fruit dumpling recipe. Thankfully Goa came to our rescue but, since the Nabisco box is not around, we are having difficulty determining how many Goya to use.
