Herb Sourdough Stuffing

November 15, 2015

Oh my gosh, it has taken me YEARS to finally write this recipe down. It’s one of those dishes that I just make without thinking about it. So this Thanksgiving I actually remembered to take notes. Whew! I have learned many tips and tricks over the years of making stuffing. The first being that you don’t need to use stale or day-old bread cubes. You want your stuffing moist, right? Well using fresh bread will do just that. And a combo of good quality French bead and sourdough bread makes the absolute best tasting stuffing! Oh, and a bit of heavy cream makes the stuffing heavenly. Other than that, I’m a traditionalist when it comes to stuffing. No cheese or sausage or mushrooms in my stuffing. If you want all that then make a casserole :) Hope you like my recipe. Gobble-gobble!

1 stick butter, plus 3 Tablespoons, divided
2 cups celery, diced
2 cups white onion, diced
2 Tablespoons fresh sage, minced
1 Tablespoon fresh thyme, minced
