This has always been my favorite dish at Thanksgiving. I know that everyone doesn’t like stuffing, but that is ok. If you have ever been wanting to make “Grandma’s Stuffing” from scratch, then this is your recipe. It is moist, but I don’t cook it in the Turkey. It really isn’t as hard as you might imagine to make your own stuffing. You can make your own dried bread cubes beforehand by cutting bread into small squares and drying them on a low temperature in the oven, or you can buy pre-made bread cubes. I have done it both ways, and I can’t really tell a difference, except that if you make your own dried bread, then you get to decide how big the bread pieces are. I hope you love this homemade stuffing recipe as much as I do!


12 c. Dried Bread Cubes

¾ c. Salted Butter

½ c. Onion

¾ c. Celery

¾ tsp. Salt

½ tsp. Pepper

6-7 tsp. Poultry Seasoning

6-7 tsp. Ground Sage

2 c. Chicken Broth

1 lb. Mushrooms (optional)

Turkey Neck Meat (optional)


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. Place your dried bread cubes in a large mixing bowl.

3. Chop the Onion and the Celery into small pieces. Melt the Butter in a frying pan and sauté them until they are starting to soften. Then add the Mushrooms and sauté them for another 3 minutes. When the vegetables are done cooking, add them to the Bread Cubes. Make sure that you add any remaining butter in the pan as well.

4. If you like to add meat to your stuffing, you can boil the Turkey Neck until it is cooked. Then cut as much meat off as you can and chop it into little pieces and add it to the bread.

5. Add the Salt, Pepper, Poultry Seasoning, and the Ground Sage. Mix it well.

6. Add the Chicken Broth and stir it well. The bread should be soggy on the outside, but still hard on the inside. See the picture for an example.

7. Place a large sheet of Aluminum Foil on the counter. Pour the Stuffing in the center and wrap it tightly into a square. I like to wrap it twice to make sure that it doesn’t come open while it is being moved or baking. See the picture for an example.

8. Bake at 350°F for 30-40 minutes.

9. Serve and enjoy!
