Thanksgiving Stuffing Recipe

To me her recipe is nostalgic, old-fashion, and oh so good. In years past I’ve made plenty of stuffing variations with dried fruit, nuts, apples, sausage, and different breads. As much as I enjoy these other types of stuffing, it’s my mom’s recipe I keep coming back to. It’s so simple, perhaps this is why I love it… not to mention I feel so connected to mom when I make it. Stuffing is one of those types of dishes you can’t really screw up. If you’re looking for a great, flavorful but simple stuffing to serve your family and friends on Thanksgiving day, this (oldie but a goodie) recipe is for you! Enjoy! [/donotprint]

Traditional Thanksgiving Stuffing Recipe
Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons butter or non-dairy margarine to keep it dairy-free
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, cut crosswise in ¼” slices
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1 teaspoon dry thyme
  • 10 cups dried unseasoned bread cubes (found in the bread section at the grocery store)
  • 1½ cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 egg
  • Optional garnish: ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter in a large pan. Saute onions, celery, salt, sage, and thyme for 5 minutes on medium heat. Turn off heat. Add bread cubes and gently stir them into the onion mixture. Slowly pour chicken broth over the bread cubes folding everything carefully so the bread cubes do not break apart too much. In a small bowl, gently whisk the egg and add it to the stuffing mix. Continue to fold everything until the egg is incorporated. Scoop uncooked stuffing into a medium casserole dish and bake uncovered for 40 minutes or until nice and toasty on top.
