Has anyone got a really nice recipe for stuffing?

Good Stuffing Recipes

I never liked stuffing or dressing when I was growing up. But then I started to make my own and now I love it. I have two different ways I do it:


Cornbread Stuffing/Dressing:

  • I cook a pan of cornbread and let set overnight crumbled up and left in a bowl.
  • I fry 8-10 pieces of bacon and drain, crumble and set aside.
  • I fry one package of pork sausage, drain and set aside.
  • I saute' in a large pot, one small onion, chopped, along with a clove or two of garlic in about 1/2 c. butter or margarine.
  • I cook onion just until onion starts to become translucent.
  • Add one can of chicken broth. I make my own using 2 c. water and four chicken bouillon cubes. You can use less bouillon if you would like.

I then add my seasonings:

  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2-1 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. ground sage
  • 1 tsp. ground thyme

Start with a little and add more to suit your taste once all is mixed together. Add cornbread, bacon, and sausage to pot and stir well just until bread is moist. Stuff inside the turkey or place into a 13x9x2 baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray.


Cook for 30-45 minutes on 375 degrees covered in foil, then take foil off and cook another 10 minutes, or so. If cooking inside of the turkey, go by directions on the turkey packaging.

Store-bought crouton style stuffing: I follow the same recipe above minus the bacon and sausage and using the store-bought crouton style stuffing. (12/01/2004)

I use store bought bread stuffing when it's on sale. I add enough bulk pork sausage to make a 50/50 mixture-you can lightly brown sausage if you want to. I add chopped apples, celery, raisins, carrots, green peppers, onions, and walnuts. (Any nut will do. No, not relatives.) Just play with the mixture to your preferred liking.

One year I didn't make it during the holidays, because we were eating at my mom's and, boy, did I hear it. (12/03/2004)

If you want a down home recipe for just plain old stuffing, I've got an excellent one. First, make your cornbread. Let it cool and then crumble 6 cups into a large bowl, add 1/3 cup butter, 4 slices of light bread, torn into small pieces, 1 1/2 tsp sage, 1/2 tsp pepper, 3 cups chicken broth, then 2 beaten eggs.

Mix with your hands really good, then add 1 cup chopped celery and 1/2 cup chopped onion. Lightly grease 13x9x2 inch baking dish. Bake in a preheated oven at 450 degrees for 30 minutes or until it is golden brown. You can add chicken to this if you want. But when you already have chicken or turkey why do you need another meat? Plain old dressing is good. this is the traditional dressing. (12/04/2004)

I have a really good dressing recipe. It is crock pot dressing and my family loves it. Mix two boxes of store bought stuffing as directed on box. Place half of stuffing mix in a 5qt. crock pot. Layer with Colby cheese, 1 can of cream of chicken soup, one can of cream of mushroom soup, and one can of white chicken meat. Top with remaining stuffing mix and cook on low setting for 4-6 hours.


My sisters all want my recipe for this dressing, but I will not give it to them. I take this to all our family dinners and everyone look forward to getting it. I don't give this to any of my family, so I will know that I'm bringing a dish that no one else brings. (12/15/2004)
