Very Herb Holiday Dressing

Very Herb Holiday Dressing

I love the holidays, you can eat ALL. THE. CARBS. without hating yourself!  Well, never hate yourself but you know what I mean.  There’s nothing like a free pass!  Here is a delicious herb dressing that has taken me a year to post, that is how awesome of a food blogger I am. This will for sure be part of my holiday menu this year!

This year has been crazy and sadly I decided to take care of so many and left my little blog to alone to suffer.  I hope that 2020 brings many more recipe blog posts for you to enjoy and share with your family and the people you take care of.

Also, I have decided to not be so OCD about my postings, so, overlook mistakes with a kind heart.  I am trying to not be such a perfectionist, work SO hard and focusing on just being me and knowing what I bring to the table is special and means a lot to some and for the ones that don’t really understand me or appreciate what I do, well, then, you know……..

Herb Dressing

OK, back to this dressing.  Dressings can be tricky as far as adding the right amount of moisture.  I always have all of my liquid parts ready and then only add as needed.  Remember, you can always add but you can never go back; life lesson!

Herb Dressing

This is also a dressing you can make ahead of time and then bake-off in a day or two.  Complete the first round of baking and then wait for the last 40-45 minutes to brown just before serving!


Herb Dressing

Day old bread is key but, this is one FRESH tasting dressing!  Herbs are life!  Enjoy!

Love, Olive and Honey

Very Herb Holiday Dressing


  • Day Old Breads/Cubed:
  • Chibata - 3 cups
  • Sour Dough - 3 cups
  • French - 4 cups
  • Yellow or Sweet Onion (chopped) - 1 1/2 cups
  • Celery (chopped) - 1 cup (some people do not like celery, leave it out if you don't and replace with an additional 1/2 cup of onions)
  • Fresh Garlic (mined) - 2 or 3 cloves (I love garlic)
  • Low Sodium Chicken Broth - 3-4 cups
  • REAL butter (salted) - 1 1/2 sticks (1/2 stick to butter the baking dish and 1 stick for cooking the celery, onions and garlic)
  • Heavy Cream - 1 cup
  • Dried Sage - 2 tbsp
  • Dried or Fresh Rosemary - 2 tbsp
  • Dried or Fresh Thyme - 2 tbsp
  • Fresh Flat Leaf Parsley - 1/2-1 cup
  • Eggs - 2 large
  • Salt - 2 tsp (add more if needed to taste)
  • Pepper - 1 tsp (add more if needed to taste)
  • 13x9x2-inch (ish) Baking Dish - buttered



Preheat oven to 250 degrees


Spread cubed bread on a rimmed baking sheet, bake, tossing a few times so that the bread doesn't burn, about 1-hour


Once the bread has baked/crisped up and cooled transfer into a BIG mixing bowl so that you can toss later


In a large non-stick skillet melt 1 stick of butter on medium-high heat, saute celery and onions until soft, once soft add in the garlic. The Garlic only needs to saute for a couple of minutes, you do not want burned garlic, YUK! Add half of your dried/fresh herbs. You want the herbs and garlic to fragrant your butter, Once cooked add to the bowl with your bread cubes and toss


Preheat oven to 350 degrees


In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, 2 cups of broth, 1 cup of heavy cream, the other half of your dried/fresh herbs, salt and pepper add to your bread mixture and fold until combined


*At this point, you need to decide if you have enough moisture in your bread, if not, heat 1 more cup of broth and add as needed * I like to get it where I think it needs to be then let it sit for a few minutes to see how much of the moisture is absorbed and then add more as needed


Transfer into your butter baking dish, cover with foil and bake about 40-45 minutes


Remove the foil and bake another 40-45 minutes until the top is browned and crunchy - I like to drizzle a few table spoons of melted butter here before browning, why not RIGHT!?!


Top with a sprinkle of your dried/fresh herbs


Watch your moisture, it will make or break your dressing! If you need more butter, ADD IT! If you want more herbs, ADD THEM! This is your dish, make it like you own it! Love, Olive and Honey

    I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful
    than ever before.

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any suggestions? Thank you!

    I don’t even understand how I ended up right here,
    but I believed this submit was once good. I don’t realize who you are
    but definitely you’re going to a famous blogger if you
    are not already. Cheers!

    Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Spending some time and actual effort to generate a good article… but what can I say… I
    put things off a lot and don’t manage to get nearly anything done.

    Do you have a spam issue on this blog; I also am a
    blogger, and I was wondering your situation; many
    of us have developed some nice procedures and we
    are looking to swap methods with others, why not shoot me an email if interested.

    When I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify
    me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each
    time a comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment.
    Perhaps there is an easy method you are able to remove me from
    that service? Thanks!
