  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1-4 - 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 9-10 cups dried bread cubes I like to make my own by cutting up french bread into cubes and letting sit on counter overnight or place in an oven for 1 hour at 200 degrees, tossing as needed
  • 2 1/4- 2 1/2 cups chicken broth**
  • 1/2 tsp dried sage
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried poultry seasoning
  • 1 egg, whisked


  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, add celery and onion and mix until onions are translucent. Remove from heat and mix in dry seasonings. 
  • Add bread cubes to a large mixing bowl. Pour whisked egg over bread cubes and mix until combined.
  • Pour butter mixture over bread cubes and gently mix until incorporated. Add 2 cups of chicken broth and again mix until everything is combined being careful to not mush the bread crumbs too much.
  • Pour into a 13x9inch baking dish. 
    Bake at 350 degrees covered for about 30 minutes remove foil and continue to cook for about 15-20 until top is slightly crispy. Keep an eye on your stuffing so it doesn’t dry out. 


**Generally you add about 1 cup chicken broth per 4 cups of bread cubes.  Once you add your chicken broth let the mixture soak for a minute. Your stuffing mixture should be moist but not wet. If you have a puddle of liquid at the bottom you need more bread.  If parts are still dry add more liquid until the stuffing begins to clump together. If you like your stuffing more moist you can always add a bit more. We prefer a stuffing right in the middle :)
