Ingredients
  1. 6 cups (½-inch) cubed sourdough bread (about ¾ pound)
  2. 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  3. 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  4. 1 cup chopped onion
  5. 1 cup chopped celery
  6. ⅔ cup chopped dried apricots
  7. ½ cup chopped toasted pecans
  8. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  9. 1 teaspoon salt
  10. ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  11. ¼ teaspoon poultry seasoning
  12. 2 large eggs, beaten
  13. 2 cups unsalted chicken stock*
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350º. On a large baking sheet, place bread cubes in a single layer. Bake 10 minutes or until toasted.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil and 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat. Add onion and celery; cook 6 minutes or until tender.
  3. In a large bowl, combine bread cubes, onion mixture, apricots, pecans, parsley, salt, pepper, poultry seasoning, eggs, and stock. Spoon mixture into an 11x7-inch or a shallow 2-quart baking dish. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter; drizzle over stuffing. Bake, uncovered, 35 to 40 minutes or until set, lightly covering with foil to prevent excess browning during last 10 minutes of baking time, if necessary.
Notes
  1. *We used Kitchen Basics unsalted chicken stock.
