Bread and Butter Stuffing with Fresh Sage

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Casseroles

 Ingredients List

  • 2 lb White bread; sliced
  • 1/2 lb Wheat bread; sliced
  • 1 1/2 lb Unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 c Celery; chopped
  • 1 c Apple; peeled and chopped
  • 3 c Chicken stock; or turkey
  • -stock/H20
  • 8 Sprigs thyme; fresh
  • 1 c Dark raisins
  • 30 Leaves sage; stems removed
  • 2 tb Salt
  • 10 Turns pepper; freshly ground


1. The night before cooking, spread all the bread out in a single layer on
sheet pans or towels and allow to dry out overnight.

2. The next morning, in a large bowl, break the bread into coarse 1-1/2
inch pieces (Don't worry about being precise)

3. Cut the sage leaves into thin stripps

4. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over low heat, making sure not to
burn it. Add the celery, onions and apple and cook over low heat for 5
minutes. Add the stock or water. Increase the heat to moderate and bring to
a boil. Turn off the heat and allow to cool for 3 minutes.

5. Pour the mixture over the bread. Remove the leaves from the thyme sprigs
and add the leaves to the bread mixture. Add the sage to the bread mixture.
Add the raisins, salt and pepper, and mix well.

6. Either stuff a 14-16 pound turkey with the mixture and roast immediatly,
or put the misture in a large roasting pan and cover with foil. If baking
seperatly, bake the stuffing in a 375 deg oven, covered for 30 minutes.
Remove foil, bake for another 30 min and serve alongside roast turkey.

NOTES : Need to taste before adding the salt - I'm not sure if I used
salted butter, or if it calls for too much salt. Can use much more sage.
"We like to cook this stuffing, in particular, outside of the bird, in a
seperate pan; the chunks of bread achieve a crunchy, chewy texture that
way. In fact the dish seems more like a delicious bread pudding than a
stuffing. The amount of butter in the recipie may raise an eyebrow or two,
but at holiday time, who's counting. Amazingly, the dish ends up tasting
intensely buttery without being greasy. If you love the taste of butter,
this highly unusual stuffing is for you."
