Holiday Stuffing with Essential Oils
Servings: 4–6 | Time: 35 min. active; 25 min. inactive | Difficulty: Easy
8 slices bread
1/2 medium onion
1 stalk celery
6 Tbs butter
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper (or use 2 toothpicks dipped in black pepper essential oil and add with the other essential oils)
1 tsp dried sage
1 drop rosemary essential oil
1 drop thyme essential oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Using a serrated knife, cut bread into cubes. Spread bread cubes out evenly on a baking sheet, and bake for 15–20 minutes, stirring once, until lightly golden.
Finely chop the onion and the celery. In a large saucepan, melt the butter, and then add the chopped onion and celery. Sauté the onion and celery over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until barely tender.
Add the chicken broth, salt, pepper, and sage.
Remove saucepan from heat, and stir in essential oils.
Add the toasted bread chunks, and stir until evenly coated.
Stir in two eggs; and then spoon the stuffing into a greased casserole dish.
Bake stuffing at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes, or until the egg is cooked and the stuffing is a nice golden color.
