Classic Traditional Thanksgiving Stuffing

Share

This Classic Traditional Thanksgiving Stuffing is my favorite accompaniment to our traditional turkey roast dinner this year. I love Thanksgiving dinner. I always put a lot of effort into making it just right for my family. It wouldn’t be the same without a giant bowl of this stuffing.

The secret to this stuffing is to start with really dry bread. If your bread isn’t super dry, the stuffing will be mushy. Brown onions and celery in butter and add to the bowl with bread. Add the parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper, chicken broth and toss to combine. In a separate bowl, combine chicken broth and eggs and pour the mixture over the bread in a baking dish. Dot the top of the stuffing with butter. Bake until the top is golden brown and serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat gently.

To make Classic Traditional Thanksgiving Stuffing, you will need the following ingredients:
