Macy's Holiday Recipe Contest Winner

Here's another recipe so good it beat out hundreds of entries to win one of two first-prizes in the in the Macy's Recipe Share Contest, with winners chosen by Food Republic's own Maureen Petrosky. Winner Victoria Kolatski channeled a Maniaci family recipe for Sicilian Stuffing that would cause she and her siblings to sneak bites while it was being made. We can see why: This is no ordinary breadcrumb-and-giblet affair. Kolatski's recipe calls for salami, ground beef, hard-boiled eggs, romano cheese and rice. 

That was enough to set it apart from other contestants. This tasty dish can be served as a side in a casserole dish or to actually use as a stuffing inside a chop, turkey, eggplant, mushroom caps, you name it. We loved the versatility of it. So congrats, Victoria, and thanks for sharing the Maniaci family recipe.
