Sourdough-Orange Dressing with pecans & rosemary
Sourdough bread dressing starts out rustic, having been based on a recipe found in a tattered cookbook from the late 1940s. Toasting the bread cubes is a neat trick to dry the cubes while adding flavor. Mandarin oranges echo the citrus brine of the Brined & Smoked Citrus Turkey Breast; fresh are ideal if they’re sweet, but jarred mandarins will do in a pinch.
Preheat oven to 375°. Coat a 1½ qt. baking dish with nonstick spray.
Melt butter in skillet over medium-high heat. Cook celery and onions in butter until onions soften, 3 minutes.
Stir in bread, broth, orange segments, pecans, rosemary, zest, salt, and pepper until combined; transfer to prepared dish.
Bake dressing, uncovered, until crusty and browned, 30–40 minutes; cool 10 minutes before serving.
