The Daily Meal's Italian Stuffing

Patricia Stagich

Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons  butter
  • 1/2 Cup  finely chopped onions
  • 1/2 Cup  finely chopped celery
  •   Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 Cups  chicken broth
  • 4 Cups  1/2-inch dried white bread cubes
  • 1/2 Teaspoon  dried sage
  • 1/2 Teaspoon  dried parsley
  • 1/2 Teaspoon  dried marjoram
  • 2 Teaspoons  onion powder
  • 1/2 Cup  chopped rosemary
  • 1 Cup  chopped sun-dried tomatoes

We all know Italians love their sausage stuffing, but we thought they could do it even better with the addition of authentic ingredients like rosemary and sun-dried tomatoes.

Directions

In a medium-sized sauce pan, melt the butter and sauté the onions and celery until soft, about 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and then add the dried seasonings and the rosemary. Add 4 cups of the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling, remove from the heat and add the dried bread cubes. Give a good stir so that the chicken broth is evenly combined. If the stuffing is too dry, add the rest of the stock in ½-cup increments until wet. Stir in the sun-dried tomatoes and place the stuffing into a 9-by-13-inch greased baking pan and bake for 30 minutes, covered. Remove the cover and bake for 5 minutes more until golden brown.
