Tips for Making Delicious Stuffing

November 21, 2010

Delicious StuffingWith the high price of seasoned bread for stuffing ($2.50 on sale), try making your own. Bake a basic white loaf of bread in bread machine, but add 2 Tbsp. sage and 1 Tbsp. onion flakes or powder. When it is a day old, cut in cubes, let dry out. I always put in warm oven for half hour or so to hasten the during process. Store the cubes in the freezer til ready to use.

This is for any stuffing recipe containing sage. The addition of chopped boiled eggs and chicken broth makes the the flavor deeper and the dressing healthier, since it has protein in it from the eggs.

I have done my stuffing in the crockpot and have added a can of cream of chicken or celery soup to the top.

I use one package of bread stuffing and one package of corn bread stuffing. I follow instructions on packages using chicken broth.

A recipe called for a box of stuffing. I don't buy it because I prefer whole grains to white bread. Instead, I took some slices of whole wheat bread, toasted them until they were dry, but not overly browned, and let them air dry a few minutes.

I have a box of Chicken Helper for chicken and stuffing. I just want to use the stuffing in the box. I'm doing something different with the chicken. I've never made stuffing before and have no idea how to make this simple dish. Please help.

Chop celery and a onion in small pieces, cover with water and cook till soft. Tear a loaf of bread in small pieces, add celery, onions and juice to bread. Add sage seasoning. I use a heaping couple tablespoons but you might not like that much. Add a can or two of chicken broth and stir well. You want it to be moist. Put in caserole dish, bake at 350 about 40 minutes.

Follow the directions on the box leaving out the chicken. It's been a long time since I've used the "Helper" mixes but it probably calls for just water & maybe a flavor packet (if that's in there)

One member of my family insists on stuffing cooked in the turkey at Thanksgiving. I do that, as well as a separate casserole of stuffing. I noticed that much of the stuffing that goes into the bird gets stuck in the nooks and crannies.


And it's kind of a pain to stuff the bird and have to find a way to keep it from spilling out.

The turkey with a stuffing package inside.
