Savory Sour Dough Dressing – So Good Your Head Will Spin!

I love noshing on stuffing/dressing during the holidays or alongside a roasted chicken dinner. However, I hate consuming all of those simple carbs into my system. I get bloated and gassy and it’s just not a good situation for ANYBODY. However, I can change all of this by swapping out traditional white bread for sourdough. My mother’s good freind Lisa gave me this recipe and I could’t be any more excited about it.

Thank you so much for sharing! This is the BEST stuffing I’ve ever made and it is good for your gut, too. Yay!



10 slices Brownberry or Oroweat OATNUT bread, cut into bite-size chunks
1/2 loaf sourdough French bread, cut into bite-size chunks
1 large sweet onion, chopped fine
1 small bunch celery (leaves and all), chopped fine
1/2 bag baby carrots, chopped fine
1 box mushrooms, chopped fine
1 tablespoon Morton sea salt
1 tablespoon white pepper
2 sticks Kerrygold unsalted butter
4 cups hot water
2 tablespoons Better than Bouillon Chicken base
2 tablespoons Buttery Herb & Garlic Mix (I believe McCormick makes it)
4 cloves garlic, minced


Cut bread into bite-sized chunks and spread out in a thin layer over cookie sheets.

Bake at 200 degrees for 3-4 hours until pieces are actually hard.

Chop all the vegetables.

In a large cast iron pan melt 1/4 cup of the butter.

Add the onions and saute until translucent. The add the celery and carrots and continue sauteing until crisp-tender. Add the garlic last as it will burn first.

Whisk together the water, better than bouillon chicken base and all of the seasonings.

Add the melted butter.

In a large pan toss the bread slices together.

Add the sauteed vegetables and toss again.

Add the liquid mixture and toss again until well absorbed.

Fold entire mixture into at least a 9×13 baking dish.

Bake uncovered 1 hour.

At this point I use a small portion for our dinner that night and freeze the rest.

When it’s time to cook it again, I defrost it, put it back in the same baking dish and bake it again, but this time covered with foil until the last 15 minutes so it doesn’t dry out. We like it crisp on top so I remove the foil the last 15 minutes.





Quick Tip: Serve these bunless burgers with your favorite condiments. I prefer using steak sauce.
