This easy stuffing mix is similar to the famous, convenient top-of-the-stove mix. It's an excellent use for day-old bread, and you probably have most of the seasonings on hand.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: Makes About 6 Cups
- 6 cups soft fresh bread crumbs
- 1 heaping tablespoon dried parsley flakes
- 5 tablespoons dried minced onion
- 1/3 cup dried celery flakes*
- 1 teaspoon ground thyme
- 1 scant teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
- 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf marjoram
- To Make the Stuffing
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 3 cups stuffing mix
- 3 tablespoons butter
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Spread the bread out on two baking sheets. Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes, until dry and crumbly.
In a large bowl or large plastic food storage bag, combine the bread crumbs with the parsley, onion, celery flakes, thyme, pepper, sage, and marjoram.
To prepare the stuffing, bring 1 1/4 cups of water and 3 tablespoons of butter to a boil. Stir in the 3 cups of stuffing mix. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
Serves 4 to 6.
*If you can't find dried celery flakes locally in large amounts, you'll find several brands on Amazon and other online merchants.
