The Best Thanksgiving Stuffing Recipes

stuffing

Stuffing is such a personal choice and defines so many Thanksgiving tables.  I find tradition dictates this holiday side dish more than any other – everyone likes it their way.

My Mom always made a classic stuffing that was simple.  That’s the way I like it – with plenty of gravy!  It will always be on my table, but  I am up for adding a second version too – it’s a feast right?

 My Recipe for Simple Stuffing

Ingredients:

  • 12 cups cubed bread
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped celery
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • no-salt-added chicken broth

Directions:

  1. In a large, heavy skillet over medium heat melt the butter, and sauté  onion and celery until soft, stir occasionally.
  2. Add salt and pepper and let the mixture cook on low heat for 4 minutes.
  3. Put the bread cubes to a large bowl.
  4. Slowly add celery and onion mixture to the bread cubes, tossing the cubes as you go to coat them thoroughly.
  5. To moisten the stuffing, add  just enough chicken broth to moisten dry crumbs.
  6. Keep warm until you are ready to serve.
