Gluten Free Turkey Stuffing Recipe Using Schar Deli-Style Sourdough Bread

It’s that time of year again and this year I decided to try Schar Deli-Style Sourdough Bread in my stuffing. I usually use their baguettes. So, it took some figuring out how much liquid to use using this new bread. It will vary depending on its use, which I explain in this recipe. The bread doesn’t taste sour but it is flavorful. It makes a wonderful stuffing.

  • 1 large egg (or 2 tablespoons liquid from can of cannellini beans + 1 tablespoon melted margarine or fat)


To Make the Croutons:

  1. Place the slices of bread on a baking sheet. Preheat the oven to High Broil.
  2. Combine melted margarine, 1 tablespoon sage, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; baste on top of baguettes.
  3. Combine melted margarine, 1 tablespoon sage, and 1/4
    teaspoon salt; baste on top of the bread.

  4. Butter the toasted bread and turn them over. Broil until the
    tops are crisp, about 1 minute. Browning the toast adds flavor.

  5. Remove from oven and butter the other side; set the pan on a
    wire rack to cool.

  6. Using kitchen scissors cut (or rip using your hands) into 1-inch pieces and set on the baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 275°F. Bake pieces of bread 20 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack to cool.

To Make the Stuffing:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Whisk together broth, sage, thyme, salt, and pepper; set aside to infuse. (Once cool, you may freeze it if you are making this in advance.)
  3. Once cool, place seasoned croutons in a 9 x 2-inch round pie dish, 9x9x2-inch baking dish, or casserole dish. Set aside.
  4. Melt 2 tablespoons margarine in a heavy skillet. Add the onion and celery; saute until onions are translucent and celery is tender. Add on top of croutons.
  5. When ready to bake, whisk the egg into the broth mixture, and pour half on top of the crouton-vegetable mixture. Toss and allow it to rest a few minutes to thoroughly absorb the liquid. Add the remaining broth and toss again gently.
  6. Stuff your bird with the stuffing just prior to baking. If not using to stuff a bird, cover with foil and bake 25 minutes. Uncover and discard the foil. Check to make sure it’s not too dry. If it is dry, add a little more chicken broth. Then, bake an additional 25 minutes.
