Instructions
  1. Preliminary preparation: Remove bread from bag, cut into small squares and and lay on cookie sheets. Let sit in open air overnight or until stale. Or: place bread on cookie sheets in a 250-degree oven and bake for 20 minutes or until fairly crisp. Place in large mixing bowl when crisp or stale.
  2. While bread is baking, lightly sauté onions and celery in a large skillet in a stick of butter over medium heat until glassine – do not brown. Turn heat off and set aside.
  3. In a separate pan, sauté all seafood in a stick of butter over medium heat, until just cooked, approximately four minutes. Do not overcook, or consistency will be tough. Remove from heat and set aside. Warm seafood stock over medium heat in a saucepan on the stove.
  4. Beat the eggs vigorously or blend in food processor or blender. Add egg mixture gluten-free bread cubes, reserving two tablespoons of beaten egg mixture. Add herbs and pepper and gently fold together with spatula. Prior to adding stock, be sure it is warm and not hot, to avoid cooking eggs. Stir stock into bread mixture, one ladle at a time, until bread becomes soft, but not mushy.
  5. Chop seafood (which should be cooled off by now) into bite-sized pieces. Add seafood and vegetable to bread cubes and fold thoroughly. Add more stock if needed. Once mixed thoroughly, spread into a sprayed 3-quart casserole dish. Brush top of stuffing with remaining egg mixture. Bake covered at 325 for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake another 10 minutes, or until top is lightly golden.
  6. Optional: for extra flavor, you can also add 1 gluten-free corn muffin, crumbled, to the mixture.
