Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 Cup chopped onions
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 Cup chopped celery
  • 6 Cups chicken broth
  • 3 Cups dried 1/2-inch bread cubes
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 2 Teaspoons onion powder
  • 3/4 Cups cooked diced bacon
  • 1 Cup dried Rye breadcrumbs

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. Add 4 cups of the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling, remove from the heat and add the dried bread cubes and the Rye breadcrumbs. 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 cooked bacon and place the wet 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.

Bread Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Bread Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
