This is a great stuffing recipe that is very easy and fun for the whole family. My mom used to include my sisters and I in the breaking of the bread. It has become a great family tradition. Stuffing not used in the bird may be cooked with the gizzards. For variety, mix in a pound of sausage or raisins when cooking the onions and celery.

This is the exact stuffing we have used my whole life ( I am 25). It will be the stuffing that will be used every Thanksgiving till the day I die. You may want to add a little poultry seasoning but the sage is fine on its own. I know it looks too easy to be good. But trust me, it is awesome. Much better than stove top. BTW fun for the kids. Mom use to have me tear up loaves and loaves of bread for this and put into brown grociery bags. If you want to give the kids something to do this would be it. No knives needed. Oh and recently I discovered Herb Ox chicken boullion which is awesome used as chicken broth.

This is very similar to my stuffing, I’ve been making for 50 years, but I use a bit more butter (1 stick), dry sage and poultry seasoning. I bake it covered, outside the turkey and since there are no juices from the turkey I add turkey broth to moisten the bread (College Inn brand is available Thanksgiving thru Christmas), chicken broth will also work; bouillon is all salt. I also mix in some grated carrot, adds a little color. I cook the vegetables and seasonings in the butter until almost tender, then gently fold into the bread cubes, alternating with broth and bake at 350 degrees until heated thru, about 40 to 45 minutes... YUM!

My Nan's recipe that I make every year is very similar to this but I also use some of the juice from the Turkey and poultry seasoning. What really makes this something special though is using FRESH parsley. If you cut up a few sprigs and add it to your saute mix it gives it that little something extra!! I don't stuff my bird but I do bake the stuffing for a while in the oven.
