Growing up I was responsible for the stuffing….which I now know is the hardest and most time consuming recipe we make at Thanksgiving/Christmas!! As a teenager it would take me 3-4 hours to make!! Finally I set out on a mission to make a stuffing recipe that was just as flavorful but saved on time. I’m happy to announce that I finally created the perfect stuffing recipe!!
3/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 loaf bread (toasted and crumbled)
1/2 bag sage dressing mix
1 chopped yellow onion
1 1/2 cups chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1 tbsp chopped fresh sage
1/2 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 tbsp thyme
2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 large eggs (beaten)
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and celery. Cook until translucent, about 10 minutes.
- Mix onion/celery mixture with bread crumbs, sage dressing mix, parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, kosher salt, and black pepper.
- Add 1 1/4 cup of chicken broth to the mixture.
- Mix eggs and remaining chicken broth together. Then add to the bread mixture until thoroughly combined. Remember stuffing should be super moist before you bake it.
- Pour stuffing into a 9 x 13 baking dish and bake for 45 minutes at 350.
If you’d like to save time on Thanksgiving/Christmas day then you can bake the stuffing the day before and then reheat the day of…just don’t forget to add some more chicken broth before you reheat it!!
