Salt; and poultry seasoning
1/4 c onion; Finely chopped
1/2 c celery; Finely chopped
8 c Bread; cubed, I use oatmeal
1/2 ts Black Pepper; freshly ground
1/4 c Chicken broth; (or more)
1/4 lb Unsalted butter; (up to 1/2)

Original recipe makes 1



Melt the butter in a skillet and stir in the onion (we dont add the celery because we like it to keep its crunch, but you can cook it with the onion if you like). Cook over low heat until the onion is soft. Add this mixture to the cubed bread along with the celery and toss lightly with the seasonings. Add the chicken broth to taste.

We don't add too much broth if we are cooking the stuffing in the turkey, but add more if we are cooking the stuffing in the oven. This recipe is enough for an 11 - 12 pound turkey. Make 1 and 1/2 times the recipe (or more) if your turkey is bigger or if you want extra stuffing. We have experimented with fancy stuffings but always come back to Moms in the end.

I have been making stuffing like this for 40 years. I add rubbed sage instead of poultry seasoning( never have heartburn)..I have tried other fancier recipes but always come back to this .. I make a lot as we all love it ,and its a must on the hot sandwiches the next day..I make it out of the turkey, that way I can make lots. you will never be disappointed with this not pack it tight into casserole or turkey as it get over cooked..

This was just like what my granmother made, only I use some sage in mine because that is what I recall her doing.

Great basic recipe. I can think of a bunch of ways to tweak it. Everyone enjoyed the stuffing this Thanksgiving. We made it in and out of the turkey.
