Roasted Chestnut Dressing


Cooking spray or unsalted butter for the pan
48 chestnuts, roasted & peeled*
6 ribs celery, cut to fit feed tube
8 ounces onions, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
12 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 teaspoons marjoram
2 teaspoons rubbed sage
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
6 cups ½-inch corn bread cubes/crumbles (recipe for corn bread follows)
6 cups ½-inch bread cubes/crumbles made from good quality day old bread (allow bread to dry slightly before cubing/crumbling)
4-5 cups low sodium chicken, turkey or vegetable broth/stock


Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly coat a 3-1/2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray or unsalted butter. Insert the medium (4-mm) slicing disc in the Cuisinart® Food Processor. Place chestnuts in large feed tube. Use medium pressure to slice; remove and reserve. Arrange celery in large feed tube, use medium pressure to slice; remove and reserve. Remove slicing disc and insert metal “s” blade. Place the onions in work bowl. Pulse to chop, about 20 to 30 pulses.
Heat butter in a large (5-1/2 quart) sauté pan over medium heat. Add celery, onions, marjoram, sage, and thyme. Cook over medium heat until vegetables are softened, onion is translucent and herbs are aromatic, about 5 to 8 minutes. Stir in salt and pepper and remove from heat.
Place the corn bread, bread, and chestnuts in a large bowl. Add the sautéed vegetables and stir. Add 4 cups of the broth/stock and stir. Transfer to the prepared casserole dish and cover with a sheet of buttered/oiled aluminum, coated side down. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, then remove foil and bake for 5 to 10 minutes longer to crisp the top. Serve hot.
