8 cups gluten-free 1-inch bread cubes (from about 2 sandwich loaves)
2 cups turkey or chicken stock
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 ribs celery, diced
1 large onion, diced
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh sage
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Gravy, for serving
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Put the bread cubes in a large bowl. Heat the stock in a small pan on high heat until boiling. Reduce the heat and set to simmer on the back burner.
Beat the eggs together in a bowl.
Set a large sauté pan on medium-high heat and warm the oil and butter. When the liquids move around the pan easily, add the celery and onion. Cook, stirring, until soft and translucent, about 7 minutes.
Add the rosemary, sage and thyme and cook, stirring, until they release their fragrance, about 1 minute. Add the celery mixture to the bread cubes and toss to combine. Transfer to a 3-quart casserole pan.
Pour a few tablespoons of the hot stock into the beaten eggs and quickly stir until the stock is incorporated. Slowly add the remaining stock, continuing to stir.
Pour the eggy stock over the pan of bread cubes. Press down on the cubes with your hands to distribute the liquid evenly. Cover the casserole pan with foil.
Bake the stuffing for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and cook until the stuffing is steaming hot and browned, but not dry, about 10 minutes more. A toothpick inserted in the middle should come out clean.
Cover with gravy, immediately.
4 pounds golden creamer potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
1 bay leaf
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups heavy cream
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons chopped chives
Put the potatoes into a large pot, add the bay leaf, 2 tablespoons salt, and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Drain them well and remove the bay leaf. Meanwhile, heat the cream and butter in a small saucepan. Put the potatoes through a ricer or food mill into a bowl. Add the hot cream and season with salt and pepper. Mix together with a spoon and add the chives.
Toss 1 1/2 pounds halved Brussels sprouts with 1/4 cup olive oil and a pinch each of red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Roast cut-side down on a baking sheet at 450 degrees until caramelized, 25 to 30 minutes. Drizzle with white wine vinegar and honey.
