Punalu'u Sweet Bread Turkey Stuffing
Sweet bread is an Island tradition that originated with Portuguese immigrants who came to Hawaii to work in the sugar cane fields. It's moist, sweet, and the perfect addition to any Thanksgiving spread.
While we usually lean toward the more savory side for stuffing (if this is you, too, check out our recipe for Macadamia Nut Stuffing with Pineapple) but we couldn't pass up the opportunity to make our Sweet Bread Turkey Stuffing this year.
This recipe features the Sweetbread and Malasada Mix from Punalu'u Bake Shop, which can be made with or without a bread machine. We add a boost of Thanksgiving flavor (and some extra protein) with a touch of turkey and a whole lot of flavor.
