Basic Bread Stuffing


This tasty bread dressing is a basic dressing for turkey or chicken. Tip: Add the seasonings and broth before you add the eggs so you can taste and add more seasonings if needed.


  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 4 cups bread cubes
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning, or to taste
  • turkey or chicken broth
  • 2 eggs, beaten


Sauté onion and celery in the butter until softened. Combine onion mixture with bread, pepper, salt, sage and poultry seasoning in a large mixing bowl. Stir in broth until well moistened. Taste and adjust seasonings, then add the eggs, stirring until well blended. Enough for an 8 to 10-pound turkey. Or, bake in a greased covered shallow casserole at 325° for about 35 to 45 minutes. Take the cover off the last 5 minutes to brown.
