I have a confession to make. Holiday meals can be a big daunting affair, and when I have to prepare several courses for a big family gathering, I'm gonna look to cut a few corners where I can. For years I've relied on stuffing mix, for the sake of saving a little time, but I never felt like it made the grade.
This year our family Christmas will be different. This year, I'm conquering stuffing from scratch, thanks to this fantastically simple and delicious 7 step stuffing recipe. In your face Martha Stewart!
- Any loaf of bread
- 1 minced onion
- 2 Tbsp herbs of your choice
- 4 crushed garlic cloves
- 6 chopped celery stalks
- 2 eggs
- 2 ½ cups chicken broth
Cut or tear bread slices into cubes. You'll need 8-10 cups. Scatter bread in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, sauté butter in a pan over medium-high heat; add onions, herbs of your choice, crushed garlic and celery stalks. Stir until it begins to brown then add to bowl with bread
In a separate bowl, whisk 2 eggs and 2 ½ cups chicken broth and add to bread and spices mixture.
Transfer to a baking sheet and bake again at 425 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
