BUTTERED STUFFING WITH CELERY AND LEEKS



Buttered Stuffing With Celery and Leeks image

Those of you who love stuffing know that it might be the only reason to host Thanksgiving. This version is an updated classic - no dried fruit, no surprise ingredients, no "twists" - just a very buttery, deeply savory stuffing made with garlic, leeks and a lot of celery. The bread is crusty and torn, never cubed (for those crisp, craggy edges), and the whole thing is baked in a baking dish, never inside the turkey (to keep it light and fluffy with a custardy interior and a golden-brown top). All stuffing needs two trips to the oven: once, covered, to cook it through and twice, uncovered, to crisp up the top. You can do the first bake ahead of time if you like, or do one after the other if the timing works out that way.

Provided by Alison Roman

Categories     dinner, stuffing and dressing, side dish

Time 4h

Yield 8 to 10 servings

Number Of Ingredients 14

1 large loaf good, crusty bread, preferably sourdough or ciabatta (about 1¼ pounds)
1/4 cup olive oil
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 large leeks, white and light green parts, chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 celery stalks, thinly sliced, leaves reserved for garnish if available
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes (optional)
2 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken, turkey or vegetable broth
3 large eggs
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
1/4 cup finely chopped chives
2 tablespoons finely chopped marjoram, oregano or thyme

Steps:

  • Using your hands, tear bread, crust and all, into 1 1/2- to 2-inch pieces. (Alternatively, you can cut the bread with a knife, but I prefer the way the craggy bits toast and soak up the goods.) Place chunks on a rimmed baking sheet, and let sit uncovered at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours. If you're short on time, you can toast the chunks in a 300-degree oven instead, tossing occasionally, until lightly crisped, but not browned, on the outside.
  • Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine olive oil and 4 tablespoons butter. Once butter has melted, add the garlic and leeks. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until leeks are bright green and totally softened, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Add celery, and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally until bright green and tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Add white wine, and cook until reduced by about three-quarters, 3 to 4 minutes. Add red-pepper flakes, if using, and remove from heat.
  • Whisk together broth and eggs in a medium bowl. Place bread in a large bowl (you want a lot of room for mixing, so go big), and add the leek and celery mixture, parsley, chives and marjoram. Stir to coat so that everything is evenly distributed, trying not to totally crush the bread. Pour the egg mixture over everything and toss a few times. Let sit a minute or two and give another toss. Repeat twice until all the liquid has absorbed and evenly distributed to each and every piece of bread.
  • Transfer mixture to a 2 1/2- to 3-quart baking dish (a 9-by-13 pan also works), making sure not to pack it too tightly. (You want to keep the bread in the stuffing as light as possible.) Dot the top with the remaining 4 tablespoons butter, making sure to pay extra attention to the corners, where the stuffing will get the crispiest.
  • Cover with foil and bake until the stuffing is sizzling at the edges and completely cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes. If it's not yet time to serve, remove stuffing from oven and set aside. (If you are nearly ready to serve, proceed directly to the next step and continue without pausing.)
  • When ready to serve, remove foil and increase temperature to 425 degrees. Bake stuffing until crispy, crunchy and impossibly golden brown on top, 20 to 25 minutes. Scatter with celery leaves, if using, and serve.

HERBED CHICKEN BREASTS WITH BUTTERED LEEKS



Herbed Chicken Breasts With Buttered Leeks image

Here's an adaptation of a lovely, simple recipe created by Chef Jerry Traunfeld; it arrived in one of NPR's Lynne Rossetto Kasper's "Weeknight Kitchen" emailings. If you prefer, substitute 1/2 cup chopped dill for the 2 Tbs tarragon or marjoram. For leeks as a side dish minus the chicken, just carry out steps 1 and 2, then season to taste and serve. For a different side dish, carry out steps 1 and 2 but substitute sliced carrots for half the leeks and add garlic to taste plus a little lemon juice.

Categories     Chicken Breast

Time 30m

Yield 4 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 8

2 cups thinly sliced leeks, white and light green parts only
2 cups chicken broth (I use low-sodium) or 2 cups chicken bouillon (I use low-sodium)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
kosher salt
pepper
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh tarragon or 2 tablespoons fresh marjoram

Steps:

  • In a large skillet bring the chicken broth and 2 Tbs butter to a gentle boil over medium heat.
  • Cook leeks in the broth mixture over medium heat about 8 minutes, until tender with the broth boiled down enough that leeks are not completely submerged.
  • Salt and pepper the chicken breasts and place on top of the simmering leeks, spooning some of leeks over the chicken.
  • Reduce the heat to low and cook, covered, 10-15 minutes until done.
  • Remove chicken and keep warm on a warmed platter.
  • Increase the heat under the leeks to high and stir in the lemon juice, the remaining 2 Tbs butter, and the chopped herb. When the butter melts, taste the sauce and adjust seasonings if needed.
  • Pour the leek sauce over the chicken and serve.

Top Asked Questions

How to cook leeks in butter?
In a large frying pan or sauté pan over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Lift the leeks out of the water, shaking any excess, and add them to the pan. Do not drain the leeks into a colander, since that will dump the dirt back onto the leeks. Sprinkle the leeks with the salt and stir to combine.
What is the best way to cook leeks and celery?
Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine olive oil and 4 tablespoons butter. Once butter has melted, add the garlic and leeks. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until leeks are bright green and totally softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Add celery, and season with salt and pepper.
How to cook leeks and garlic in a pan?
Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine olive oil and 4 tablespoons butter. Once butter has melted, add the garlic and leeks. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until leeks are bright green and totally softened, 8 to 10 minutes.
How long to cook leeks for?
Cook, stirring every 5 minutes or so until the leeks are very tender, 30 to 40 minutes total. Take the pan off the heat and add the remaining tablespoon of butter. Stir until the butter is melted into the leeks. Serve hot or warm. Store leftover cooked leeks in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
