Gluten Free Stuffing

My Mum loves stuffing. This year I will be hosting Christmas and I did not want her to give up stuffing for Christmas because I'm gluten intolerant; so instead of making the traditional family stuffing with wheat based bread I sat down and made a recipe for gluten free stuffing. It taste just like homemade wheat bread stuffing with a little extra garden flavoring to it. Bear and I love it. For the bread cubes I used Food for Life Wheat and Gluten Free Brown Rice fruit juice sweetened Bread.

You will need:
1 loaf of gluten free bread
5 TBS of butter
2 cups of diced red onion
2 celery stalks
2 eggs
1/4 cup of chicken broth
1 cup of parsley
White pepper
Black pepper

Begin by cutting the loaf of bread into 1/2 inch cubes (approx). Place them in a bowl and add a little water (about an 8th of a cup or less); just enough to moisten the bread and no more or it will turn to mush. Melt the butter, dice the celery and green onions and then add them to the bread. Make sure to stir well. The Butter will try to absorb into the top layer. It is helpful to have someone pour while you constantly stir. Finely chop the Parsley, Sage, and Thyme (if you are using dried Sage and Thyme use about 1 to 3 TBS each). Add in the chicken stock, white and black Pepper (to taste), and 2 beaten eggs. Set your oven to preheat at 350 and bake uncovered for 40 minutes. If it looks like it is getting dry, add some more chicken stock and bake for 10 more minutes. Enjoy!
