My Sister's Famous Holiday Stuffing

 

 Ingredients  
8 cups dried bread cubes
1/2 cup margarine
1 cup onion, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 tsp poultry seasoning
to taste black pepper
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
as needed salt


 Directions  
Saute onion and celery in 1/4 cup of margarine until soft. Do not brown. Add remaining margarine to melt. In a loarge bowl, combine bread cubes and seasonings. Mix to distribute. Add vegetable mixture and toss to combine. If using homemade or otherwise unsalted chicken stock, season well with salt. Heat stock slightly, it does not need to be boiling, just warm. Pour over over bread mixture. Mix thoroughly. This should be rather dry.

Fill cavity of bird loosely to allow for expansion. If there is any leftover, mix in additional chicken stock until it's moist but not soggy. Put this in a "buttered" dish, dot with some additional margarine, cover tightly and bake for 30-40 minutes.


 Notes  
Can use any safe prepagckaged dried bread cubes or make Croutons from a loaf of safe bread.

This does work with gluten-free bread. I've used store bought and I've also used Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread to make Croutons. When using gluten-free bread, I found I need a bit more liquid, and I need to add it slowly. Add part of the liquid, stir it around and let it set a minute to absorb. I've only made it gluten-free to bake outside the bird which needs more liquid anyway. Add stock til it's moistened, but not soggy and falling apart. Be gentle with the stirring as the gluten-free bread cubed do break up more easily.

If you want to make this outside the bird, add more stock until the bread is thoroughly moistened, but not soggy. So, add it a half cup at a time and mix well. I just keep tasting it till it seems right. Turn out into a buttered dish, "dot" the top with butter or margarine, cover with foil and Bake at 375 °F for 45 min or until it's all heated through.

 Substitutions  
Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

Butter and Margarine: Butter is a dairy product made from cow’s milk. Margarine typically contains milk or soy, but there are milk-free and soy-free versions available.
