Sourdough Stuffing
Cook Time:1 hour

Equipment

  • 9×13 glass baking dish
  • Skillet

Ingredients

  • 10 Cups Sourdough Stuffing (cubed)
  • 4 Cups Chicken Broth or Stock (sliced)
  • 2 Small Onions (diced)
  • 6 Ribs of Celery
  • 1 Cup Butter
  • 1/2 tsp ground sage
  • 2 TBS fresh parsley (diced)
  • 1 TBSP Fresh Rosemary (plucked-each individual leaf)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 375
  • In a large skillet, melt your butter on medium heat and onion, celery, and sage. Reduce to medium heat and cook until the onions are golden and tender. Let cool slightly (5 mins)
  • In your 9×13 baking dish, add your bread and pour in your onion, celery, sage, and butter mixture.
  • Add in your chicken broth/stock and gently stir. Try to spread your chicken broth out so that it is not concentrated in one area. Mix so that all bread pieces get liquid and so that it does not get soggy.
  • Salt and pepper your stuffing to taste
  • Put in the oven for 40 minutes
  • Take out, allow to cool for 10 minutes and serve right away!

Notes

  • Add your broth a little bit at a time and spread out. If you need to use less than 4 cups, do so! You do not want your bread to be too soggy.
  • If you are stuffing your turkey with the stuffing, the stuffing needs to be completely cooled. Allow for your stuffing to sit in the fridge for an hour or more until the stuffing is cooled. 
  • You can make your Stuffing ahead of time…up to 48 hours before.
