A SIMPLE No nonsense stuffing recipe that even your cousin Bob can’t screw up



    • 1/2 Loaf of day-old White bread (approximately 5 cups), torn into 1/2-inch cubes
    • 1/2 Loaf of day-old Wheat bread (approximately 5 cups), torn into 1/2-inch cubes
    • 1/2 Cup (1 stick) Butter
    • 2 Cups Onions,diced
    • 2 Cups Celery, diced
    • 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
    • 1 Tbsp. Fresh Sage, chopped
    • 1 Tbsp. Fesh Thyme, chopped
    • 2 teaspoons Fresh Rosemary, chopped
    • 2 teaspoons Fresh Parsley, chopped
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • 2 1/2 Cups Chicken or Vegetable broth
    • 2 Large Eggs, beaten


      1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and butter a 9×13-inch baking dish.
      2. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the diced onions and celery, and sauté until they become tender and translucent, about 5-7 minutes.
      3. Stir in the minced garlic, fresh sage, thyme, rosemary, and parsley. Cook for an additional 2 minutes, allowing the herbs to release their aroma.
      4. In a large mixing bowl, place the bread cubes. Pour the sautéed vegetable and herb mixture over the bread.
      5. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste. Toss the ingredients together, ensuring the bread absorbs the flavors.
      6. Gradually add the chicken or vegetable broth to the mixture while stirring, making sure the bread is evenly moistened but not soggy.
      7. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl and then fold them into the mixture, providing a binding element for the stuffing.
      8. Transfer the stuffing to the prepared baking dish, spreading it out evenly.
      9. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 25-30 minutes. Then, remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and crispy.
      10. Serve your homemade stuffing alongside your favorite roast, turkey, or as a delicious side dish at your holiday dinner. Enjoy!

      NOTE: Bread must be stale. For best results, tear the bread into bite sized pieces in a large baking dish a few days prior to making the stuffing. Turn every so often to allow to stale.
