With the upcoming Thanksgiving feast on it’s way here is how we make our homemade stuffing.
This is a FAVORITE of everyone at our table and something I have to make the most of if we want to have any leftovers!
You can adjust this to the quantity you need (add another loaf of bread and more of the seasonings). I use 2 king size loaves of white bread for a 14 lb turkey.
2 loaves of bread cubed and baked at 350 to toast them (almost like a crouton)
1/2 medium onion diced
1 long stalk celery diced
3/4 to 1 stick of butter
about a cup of chicken stock
celery salt, sage, poultry seasoning (I use about 1 tsp of each to start)
Cube the bread and bake at 350 until toasted (I do this in a few batches)
Melt the butter and add the diced onion and celery cooking about 4 minutes or until softened
Mix into the bread cubes and add the seasonings
Add chicken stock slowly stirring frequently until the desired consistency
Taste test and add more seasoning to your desired taste!
You can stuff your chicken/turkey or you can cover with tinfoil and bake at 350 until heated through. Remove and bake about 5 minutes more to get a bit of a crunch layer on top.
Homemade stuffing is a staple in our house. It’ so simple to make and I know exactly what’s in it!!
Mixed with a bite of cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes, stuffing has GOT to be my favorite Thanksgiving dish!
Mine too with homemade cranberry sauce and squash!!
This is very similar to my family’s traditional Thanksgiving stuffing–prepared in what feels like industrial quantities, for the very same reason!
I do similar but with cornbread. I hope you have a merry white Christmas.
This sounds great, Tina! I’m coming to dinner! My warm wishes for a joyful Christmas for you and your family, Tina. I hope you get to relax and hang out a bit too.
