Recipe by What's Cooking?
Here's my dad's recipe for stuffing, adapted to be kosher and gluten-free. I suppose it is technically "dressing" but we've never called it that. We used Kinnikinnick White Sandwich Bread, which worked well. Stick to a gluten-free bread that runs on the dry side. It was delicious and just like I remembered it from my childhood.
- 6 slices gluten free bread
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 cup apple cider
- 1⁄2 cup pitted prune, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup dried apricot, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 1 stalk celery, sliced lengthwise and chopped
- 1⁄2 medium onion, chopped finely
- 1 tablespoon bell's seasoning or 1 tablespoon other poultry seasoning
- salt and pepper
- 2 -3 tablespoons poultry drippings or 2 -3 tablespoons chicken fat
