Quickest Stuffing Recipe!

I've been there.  Pretty much every time I've cooked a turkey.  I go to dress the turkey and... oh, yeah.  You have to put the stuffing in hot!  Also, it takes an hour to make.  Well, not this stuffing!  You can have this ready in half the time.  Also, a little secret:  The turkey takes less time to cook and comes out even better if you don't stuff it! Another time saver!  If you use this recipe for stuffing the turkey, add in the chicken stock hot and omit the eggs.

If you need some bread recipes, I have made excellent, fluffy stuffing from these loaves:

Quickest Stuffing Recipe

In a large bowl, mix:

1 lb GF Bread cubes (cut them extra small if your bread is really dense)
1/2 stick minced celery (optional)
2 Tbsp minced shallot or onion
1 Tbsp dried sage
1 Tbsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried or fresh, chopped rosemary
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro or parsley (optional)

Once the dry ingredients are mixed, add to the bowl:

2 eggs, whisked (optional)
2 cups chicken or vegetable stock (use hot stock if you are stuffing the bird)

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.  Stuff the bird with the hot stuffing or grease or butter a large casserole dish and place all the contents of the bowl inside the casserole.  Cook the casserole uncovered at 375 for 20 minutes. Serve hot.  Enjoy!
