Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a large skillet cook celery and onion in hot butter over medium heat until tender but not brown. Remove from heat. Stir in sage and pepper. Place bread cubes in large bowl; add onion mixture. Drizzle with enough chicken broth to moisten; toss lightly to combine. Place stuffing in a 2-qt. casserole dish. Bake, covered, for 30 to 45 minutes or until heated through. Top with fresh sage. Makes 12 to 14 servings.


Test Kitchen Tip:*

If using to stuff a turkey, reduce broth to 3/4 to 1 cup. Try a mix of whole wheat, white, and multi-grain bread cubes for extra flavor.

Stuffing Addition Options:

1) Stir 2 medium cored and chopped apples into bread cubes. 2) Omit 1 cup of the celery and substitute 2 cups sliced mushrooms. Cook mushrooms with the celery in Step 1, above. 3) Stir one 15-ounce can chestnuts, drained and coarsely chopped, into bread cubes. 4) Stir 1 cup cooked wild rice into bread cubes.

Bread options:

Here are some of our favorite types of bread to use in our old-fashioned stuffing (choose one): white or wheat bread, corn bread, focaccia bread, Italian bread, multigrain bread, and sourdough bread
