Stuffing Bread Recipe

Publisher Photo
My family loves stuffing. It occurred to me that if the traditional seasonings could be incorporated into the bread itself, I wouldn't have to start with plain bread cubes to make my stuffing. So I came up with this savory recipe. Last year, I gave loaves to friends as holiday gifts. They loved it.

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1/2 cup) equals 348 calories, 13 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 122 mg cholesterol, 736 mg sodium, 48 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 11 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine 2 cups flour, yeast, sugar and seasonings. Add water and oil; beat just until moistened. Add egg and beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  2. Punch dough down. Shape into a large round loaf. Place on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 375° for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
  3. To make stuffing, cut cooled bread into 1-in. slices and then into cubes. Let stand for 24 hours to dry. In a large bowl, combine the bread cubes, eggs, butter and enough broth to achieve desired moistness. Stir to blend. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 60 minutes. Uncover; bake 10 minutes longer or until lightly browned. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: Stuffing may be used to stuff a turkey, chicken or pork roast by substituting 3/4 cup egg substitute for eggs.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 28, 2010

"Made this up about a week before Thanksgiving and froze the bread crumbs once they were dried. Added lots of onion, three celery, shredded two carrots, stick of butter and thought the recipe needed a bit more spice. Mixed all the spices together in a zip loc baggie and sprinkled by pinches until the official taster (husband)determinded it was just right! He thought that it was the closest I have ever come to his mothers! High compliment indeed! Will make again next time I need stuffing!"
