3) Marilyn Monroe’s Stuffing
It might seem like Monroe probably never did any cooking, but like reading and culture, she was always trying to better herself and really tried to hone at least a few recipes for her own pleasure.
Monroe’s quirky stuffing recipe has been made somewhat famous after being featured in a book of Marilyn’s papers and on many cooking sites. Written on sheet from an insurance company notepad, this fussy recipe uses sourdough bread, 3 kinds of nuts, hard-boiled eggs, raisins, beef liver, and a host of other ingredients that stray pretty far from the usual stuffing we’re used to! The recipe also has no garlic, a known request of Joe DiMaggio. Have a gander at this special recipe recipe here.
