Stupendous Stuffing

I’ve been making this stuffing as long as I can remember. I personally like stuffing it into a turkey at Thanksgiving, but it’s also great as a side dish with a nice piece of roasted chicken.

Stupendous Stuffing
Here are the Ingredients:
  • 3 large whole celery sticks, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 stick of butter plus 1/4 cup
  • 7 slices soft bread 1 inch cubes, toasted
  • cornbread (see recipe)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 1/2-2 cups  chicken broth, heated
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 eggs, whisked with fork
Melt butter in a dutch oven. Add celery and onions until translucent. Meanwhile toast bread cubes in oven at 350 degrees. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a saucepan and add herbs. Remove toasted bread and toss with butter and herbs and return to oven for another 5 minutes. Allow to cool. Add bread cubes and cornbread to celery and onion mixture add the salt, pepper and slowly add chicken broth until bread crumbs are moist and sticky not runny. Add whisked eggs and blend well. Allow to cool and stuff turkey cavity.
