Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Arrange bread in a single layer on a baking sheet, and let stand, uncovered, at room temperature overnight. (Alternatively, bake bread in a 300 degrees oven until dry but not browned, about 15 minutes.)

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions, celery, and garlic, and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in herbs, and cook for 2 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl. Add bread, and toss to combine.

  • Whisk peach syrup into orange juice concentrate, and add to bread mixture with peaches.

  • To cook stuffing in a turkey: Loosely stuff into a turkey, and roast until center of stuffing registers 165 degrees on an instant-read thermometer. Spoon the remaining stuffing into a buttered 9-by-13-inch baking dish, cover with parchment, then foil, and bake for 25 minutes. Uncover, and bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. To bake all of the stuffing outside a turkey: Stir in stock, spoon into a buttered 9-by-13-inch baking dish, and bake at 375 degrees as directed above.

Cook's Notes

If baking the stuffing inside a turkey, omit the optional 1/2 cup of stock.

I tried your Peach Stuffing in a roasted chicken, to see if I wanted to serve it for Thanksgiving. It was FABULOUS! This is a keeper for all our Thanksgivings!:)
