For now, I’m trying to find food without MSG. Do you know how hard that is? So I usually opt to make my own.
Here’s my Stovetop Copy recipe.
- 6 cups cubed bread
- 3 tsp. vegetable, chicken or beef bouillon granules or 3 cubes (Make sure you buy it with no MSG, otherwise nearly every bouillon has it)
- 1/4 cup dried minced onion
- 1/2 cup dried minced celery
- 1 tsp. thyme
- 1 tsp. pepper
- 1-1/2 tsp. sage
Preheat oven to 350*F. Bake bread cubes for 8 to 10 minutes or until dry. In a large bowl, toss bread with remaining ingredients until evenly coated. Store in airtight container.
It will keep for 1 to 4 months or 12 months frozen.
To prepare, boil 1/2 cup water and 2 tablespoons butter. Combine 2 cups stuffing mix, remove from heat then fluff with fork.
I used some Panera Sourdough ends I threw in the freezer along with a half a loaf of french bread. I made the whole batch using 1-1/2 cups of water and 6 tablespoons of butter. That should feed a family of 4 or 5.
