Thanksgiving is right around the corner and this year I want to share with you my favorite stuffing recipe. It comes from my Great Grandma Ella and my family has been making it each year at Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember. It is super simple to make and you can double the recipe if you are feeding a large crowd or stuffing a large turkey. This recipe has one small change from the way my Great Grandma made it. She used white bread bought from the store. I use homemade sourdough bread.
- 1 large chopped onion
- 1 loaf organic whole grain sourdough bread
- 2 1/2 cups warm whole milk
- 1 cup butter
- 1 1/4 cups chopped celery
- 1 Tbsp poultry seasoning
- 1/2 Tbsp pepper
- 1 Tbsp unrefined sea salt
- 2 whole pastured eggs
- Slice and toast the sourdough bread. Break up into small pieces and place in large bowl.
- Saute onions and celery in 2 Tbsp butter. Add in spices.
- Warm milk and pour over bread crumbs. Melt remaining butter.
- Whisk eggs to blend. Add everything to bread and mix well until combined.
- Place in a 9” x 13” baking dish and bake at 350°F for 35 minutes.
