Ah, stuffing. In so many American’s minds, it’s the star of the Thanksgiving meal. What’s not to love? The bread-y, herb-y baked goodness is worthy of all the admiration it receives.

I want to show you how to make a traditional stuffing recipe from scratch without much fuss at all. This is a pretty classic stuffing recipe–no trendy twists or frills, just exactly the stuffing flavor and texture you crave around the holidays.

Sourdough bread is called for in my recipe. I use it for a few reasons. Sourdough is definitely the superstar of the bread world nutritionally. Sourdough is a prebiotic, which helps support the gut microbiome and is one of the easiest breads to digest. I get mine from the local bakery and it’s one of my favorite things!

Aside from the health benefits, sourdough is just good and I love the flavor it brings to the stuffing. If you aren’t a fan, you can substitute a rustic loaf of country white bread or your favorite whole grain loaf to make it a whole grain stuffing.

What are the ingredients for stuffing?

For this Thanksgiving stuffing recipe, I keep it vegetarian and don’t use sausage. I like this sourdough stuffing recipe much more than any recipe with sausage. Besides, isn’t Thanksgiving dinner heavy enough?

Recipe Ingredients–What You Need

These are the simple ingredients to make the best sourdough bread stuffing!

  • 1 loaf sourdough bread, cut into cubes (about 10 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 2 onions, diced (2 cups total)
  • 1 shallot, diced (about 1/4 cup total)
  • 4 large or 6 small celery stalks, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • equal parts chopped fresh rosemary, thyme, and sage to equal 1/4 cup total (fresh herbs are a must)
  • 4 tablespoons butter (use a vegan butter alternative for dairy-free, vegan stuffing)
  • 2 1/2 cups vegetable broth (chicken broth or turkey stock may be used also)

    How do you make the best homemade sourdough stuffing?

    There are simple steps for how to make the best homemade stuffing. Follow this outline and you’ll be the hero of Thanksgiving because you made the best stuffing ever!

    1. Dry the bread. Stale bread isn’t quite what you’re looking for here, but totally fresh bread doesn’t work well, either. You need to have dry bread that’s hard. I find drying it in the oven on a rimmed baking sheet is the best bet. After you dry your bread, place the cubes in a large bowl.
    2. Sauté your vegetables and herbs.
    3. Add the sautéed vegetables mixture to the bread cubes.
    4. Melt some butter in the same pan that you sautéed your vegetables. Scrape up any brown bits (FLAVOR) and then pour the butter over the top of your stuffing mixture.
    5. Pour the butter over the top of the bread mixture.
    6. Add the vegetable broth and gently toss the mixture.
    7. Transfer the mixture to a lightly greased casserole dish and bake in the oven.

    Easy, right? This will be a delicious addition to your holiday meal! It’s the real deal!

    If you have leftover sourdough or an extra sourdough loaf, I recommend making this Sourdough French Toast for breakfast. Doesn’t it sound delicious?

    • 1 loaf sourdough bread, cut into cubes (about 10 cups)
    • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
    • 2 onions, diced (2 cups total)
    • 1 shallot, diced (about 1/4 cup total)
