I know you've probably been trying to avoid thinking about Thanksgiving dinner: political talk, relationship talk and questions about why you're wearing spandex pants are probably all things you want to dodge. But if this post is suddenly reminding you that you need to bring a dish because sitting at the adult tables means that you're, well, an adult, then you're in the right place.
Procrastinators of America, I'm here for you.
Check out the simplest dressing recipe you'll ever find. (That doesn't come from a box) And of course, you'll need a few loaves of JJ's day old bread!
What you'll need:
2 loaves of JJ's day old bread- you can grab it from your local JJ's while it lasts!
2 1/2 cups chopped yellow onions
1 1/2 cups celery
1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons sage
1 tablespoon rosemary
1 tablespoon thyme
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 large eggs
3/4 cup unsalted butter *
2 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth *
*Not pictured above for ~artistic~ value
Here's what ya gotta do:
1. Melt 3/4 cup of butter in a large skillet over medium- high heat, then add your onions and celery. Cook until softened and beginning to brown.
2. Now you're gonna toss your veggies into a large mixing bowl with bread that has been torn into 1" pieces, stir in your herbs, salt and pepper and drizzle 1 1/4 cups of broth over the mixture. Let it cool down for a bit.
3. Crank up the heat in your oven to 350°F. While it's gettin' hot in there, whisk together your eggs and 1 1/4 cup of chicken broth, then toss it over the bread mixture and mix it around.
4. Transfer your entire mixture to a oven safe baking dish, cover it with foil and let it bake for about 40 minutes. Then uncover, and let it brown for about another 40 minutes.
It should look a little something like this:
Make sure it cools down a bit before you serve it, or your family may just not be able to speak.....
