   Kasha is frequently called buckwheat groats.  It is
   made from buckwheat grain and then roasted, which
   gives it a delicious nut-like flavor. Aside from being
   a tasty stuffing for poultry, this recipe makes an
   excellent side dish in place of rice, potatoes, or
   noodles. So if you have any stuffing left over, be
   sure to refrigerate it and save for a future meal.
   
   Mix the groats with beaten egg, then add to frying pan
   over high heat. Stir constantly until grains separate.
   Now add the briskly boiling water, cover pan, reduce
   heat, and simmer for 30 minutes.
   
   Meanwhile, fry bacon in another large frying pan.
   When bacon is lightly browned, push to one side and
   add butter.  Let this sizzle and add onion, garlic ,
   green pepper, and mushrooms.  Stir well while they are
   cooking so that they do not become too brown.  Add
   oregano, sage, and salt and pepper. Reduce heat and
   add the cooked groats. Mix well, adjust seasoning, and
   remove from heat.
   
   This is enough for a small roast chicken and more than
   enough for 2 Cornish game hens.  Increase ingredients
   for goose.
