Sourdough Stuffing with Artichokes, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, and Basil

If the Thanksgiving weather forecast is cold and gray, then you might want to consider this brightly colored stuffing, which is packed with sunny Mediterranean flavors and goes well with a variety of foods: turkey, chicken, pork, bell peppers and zucchini. Don’t cut the crust off the bread; it adds texture.–Rick Rodgers

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • One 10-ounce package frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained
  • 1 pound crusty sourdough bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes and dried overnight, or in oven (about 10 cups)
  • 1/2 cup chopped basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper, or to taste
  • 1/2 cup dry vermouth or white wine
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup turkey broth, homemade chicken stock or canned chicken broth, as needed


  • 1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the red onion and cook, stirring often, until lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.
  • 2. Into a large bowl, scrape the vegetables. Add the bread cubes, basil, Parmesan cheese, salt and crushed red pepper. Gradually stir in the vermouth, eggs and about 1/2 cup of the broth, until stuffing is evenly moistened but not soggy.
  • 3. Use as a turkey stuffing. Or place in a lightly buttered casserole, drizzle with 1/2 cup broth, cover and bake in preheated 350°F (175°C) oven as a side dish.

    I would love it if i could PIN your recipe with the photo of it rather than your logo. :(

      Belbowls, you can’t pin a recipe if there’s no image, as there isn’t one here. (Pinterest, being a visual site, only pins images.) On any of our posts with an image, just roll over it, and you’ll see the “P” logo. Click and you’re set!
