Sage and Onion Stuffing

Should probably be called sage with a few other herbs stuffing. The additional herbs keep the sage from being too harsh on its own. And I guess it’s more of a dressing since nothing is actually stuffed. Any combination of bread crumbs are fine- just don’t use store bought. If you have homemade stock to use please do; it will make this dish amazing.

Sage and Onion Stuffing

Serves 8 to 10

8 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 cups finely chopped onions
2 cups finely chopped celery
1/4 cup finely chopped Italian parsley
8 tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh marjoram
12 cups day old bread crumbs, lightly toasted
6 large eggs
2 teaspoons fine sea salt
1 teaspoon coarsely groung black pepper
3 cups low sodium chicken broth

Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter a 13 by 9 baking dish.

Melt butter in heavy skillet over medium low heat. Add onions and celery. Saute until tender, about 12 minutes. Add parsley, sage, and marjoram and saute 1 minute more.

In a large bowl combine vegetables and bread crumbs.

Whisk together eggs, salt, and pepper. Whisk in one cup broth. Add to vegetables and bread crumbs. Add rest of broth.
