Who Makes the Best Stuffing?

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of people will come to Minot's Parker Senior Center tomorrow for Thanksgiving Day dinner.

And some of the food they share will be thanks to local media chefs.

The Salvation Army held its annual Media Mixer Stuffing Contest today - a chance for members of the local media to show off their culinary skills.

And for KX News, that means one person - photojournalist Gaylen Ness.

He had help in the kitchen from Shaun Sipma this morning as they prepared a special recipe of stuffing that grew out of some conversations they had last week.

(Shaun Simpa, KX News Chef's Assistant) "This is what we call the concoction of Gaylen because once again he has taken several different recipe ideas, melded them all together while we were driving around the other day for a story."

(Gaylen Ness, KX News Chef) "I started with one recipe and then a few days ago Shaun was talking and said he had some deer sausage and that changed everything and we just went a different direction altogether - and that's it right there. We also are going to add bacon and some mushrooms and we'll probably kick it up with some pepper jack cheese (shhh)"

(Michelle Bussard, Salvation Army) "We have chefs from base coming down to help us and they are so excited to have help making some of the stuffing."

[What kind of pressure is there being the defending champion?] (Gaylen Ness, KX News Chef) "I don't know..." (Shaun Sipma) "With Gaylen he puts undue pressure on himself every time he enters a kitchen so it's not just a stuffing contest to him." (Gaylen Ness) "That's right!" Just ask him about his ribs!] (Gaylen Ness) "Yeah, my ribs, that's right."

The media stuffing creations will be served tomorrow as the Parker Senior Center serves its Thanksgiving dinner.

By the way, Gaylen and Shaun's stuffing was named the best again this year.
