Equipment

  • Large Mixing Bowl:
  • Skillet or sauté pan
  • Wooden Spoon or Spatula
  • Baking dish
  • Knife and cutting board
  • Whisk
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Foil if baking separately

Ingredients
  

  • 8 cups cubed bread white or whole wheat
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 2 celery stalks diced
  • 2 carrots peeled and diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary crushed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup chicken broth or more as needed
  • 2 large eggs beaten

Instructions
 

  • Preheat Oven (if baking separately):
    Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) if you plan to bake the stuffing separately.
  • Prepare Bread Cubes:
    Cut the bread into cubes and spread them on a baking sheet. Allow them to air-dry for a few hours or toast them in the oven until slightly crispy.
  • Sauté Vegetables and Herbs:
    In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add chopped onions, celery, carrots, and minced garlic. Sauté until the vegetables are softened.
  • Season the Mixture:
    Add dried sage, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper to the sautéed vegetables. Stir well to combine.
  • Combine Ingredients:
    In a large mixing bowl, combine the sautéed vegetable and herb mixture with the dried or toasted bread cubes.
  • Moisten with Broth:
    Pour chicken broth over the bread and vegetable mixture. Toss gently to moisten the bread evenly. Add more broth if needed.
  • Bind with Eggs:
    Whisk the eggs and fold them into the stuffing mixture, ensuring even distribution.
  • Stuff Chicken or Bake Separately:
    If stuffing a whole chicken, pack the cavity loosely with the stuffing mixture. If baking separately, transfer the mixture to a greased baking dish.
  • Bake (if separate):
    Cover with foil and bake for 30-40 minutes, then uncover and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes until the top is golden.
  • Serve and Enjoy:
    If used as a stuffing, carve the chicken and serve alongside the flavorful stuffing. If baked separately, scoop out the stuffing and serve as a delightful side dish.
