How to Make Homemade Stuffing

For this recipe, we use fresh white bread and fresh herbs. It’s different because you don’t need to let the bread sit overnight. Just cube white bread while it’s fresh and toss it in a mixing bowl.

It will be moist and delicious without the extra step of drying the bread. Simplifying dishes for Thanksgiving is always a good idea!

Traditional Stuffing Recipe Ingredients

  • Fresh White Bread
  • Eggs
  • Sage
  • Thyme
  • Parsely
  • Melted Butter
  • Celery
  • Yellow Onion
  • Salt and Pepper


  • Cube 10 cups fresh white bread and place in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the butter in a large skillet over medium heat and let it start to melt.
  • Then saute the onions and chopped celery in the butter until soft.
  • Add in fresh parsley and continue to saute.
  • Add in the dried thyme, sage and salt, and pepper.
  • Pour over cubed bread and mix in the eggs.
  • Pour the mixture into a baking dish and cover it with tinfoil.
  • Bake for 30 minutes in a 350-degree oven, covered.
  • Uncover and bake for another 15 minutes until the top is browned.

Sausage Stuffing Recipe

You can easily add sausage to this recipe!

  • To make sausage stuffing, add in 1lb sausage, casing removed, and saute with the butter, onions, and herbs.
  • Pour in with the bread crumbs and then follow the same directions below to bake.

Thanksgiving Side Dishes

Thanksgiving dinner can't get much better than with this recipe!

After sauteing the colorful veggies, berries and herbs and infusing all those flavors together, it's time to add in chicken stock and the stuffing.

I used pre-packaged unflavored white and wheat bread cubes to save time. And although I do like making my own chicken stock, I used store bought since I didn't have any in my freezer--and that is perfectly fine to do when you're trying to make easy turkey stuffing recipes.

The whole point is to keep it easy, right?

Stir all the ingredients together and allow the bread to soak up the liquid.

How to make chestnut stuffing

  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Cut bread into bite-sized cubes.
  3. Crush the crackers.
  4. Melt butter in a medium skillet.

    Add onion and garlic, sauté until translucent, about 3 minutes.
  5. Toss bread cubes and crackers in a 9x13 baking dish and mix well.
  6. Pour eggs, chestnuts, and onion mixture over top. Mix well.

    Add just enough milk so that the bread is moisten but not wet. (*You may not need a full cup do not use too much or your finished stuffing will be soggy.)
  7. Cover with foil and bake for one hour or until golden brown on top. If the top doesn't get crispy, you can remove the foil and bake it for 10-15 minutes uncovered.

A Warning - Cooking with Chestnuts

Chestnuts are tricky, especially if you've never used them before. You must not wait until Thanksgiving morning to shell them. Do it a day or two before you need them it takes a good bit of time. You'll throw your whole Thanksgiving cooking plan off if you wait til the last minute.

Why this is the best stuffing recipe:

  • The bread is always perfectly moist. It's never dry. It's never soggy. All this perfectness is thanks to our friend, mushrooms. They release their moisture as the stuffing cooks which means that you don't need to pour tons of stock over the stuffing risking making it soggy.
  • Apricots and cranberries. They take first place in the reasons I love this stuffing recipe list. They add just the right bit of sweetness and go so well with a big turkey dinner.
  • Walnuts! And pine nuts! They soften when cooked and give a great bite to the stuffing.
  • It's so ridiculously easy to make. Toss everything together in your biggest bowl then pack it into your casserole dish.
  • It's totally make-ahead-able. I know that oven space is at a premium at holiday feasts so the less time something has to spend in the oven, the better. This stuffing can be partially pre-cooked then finished with the bird comes out of the oven. #win

See that bowl filled to the brim with all the ingredients for this bread stuffing? Please don't copy that picture. Be smart and choose a MUCH larger bowl.

You'll want room to mix everything together without spilling half the ingredients. Trust me on this one!

In many ways, this is very similar to an old fashioned bread stuffing recipe. There are lots of onions and celery, poultry seasoning and pepper. And (obviously) bread. Kind of hard to make bread stuffing without that one important ingredient!

What takes this from traditional to the best stuffing recipe are the nuts and fruit. Two simple additions that rock the stuffing.

Once you try them in this stuffing recipe you'll seriously wonder how you ever ate stuffing any other way.

If you're making stuffing to go with your Christmas dinner this year, I beg you to make this one. It really is the best stuffing recipe ever.

Also, does anyone not make stuffing to go with their Christmas or Thanksgiving turkey? That thought has me a little worried.

Sensational Stuffing and Dressing Recipes for Thanksgiving

When Americans gather on Thanksgiving, it's not just food we're eating and thanks we're giving many of us are also enjoying a taste of tradition. As it turns out, we are creatures of habit, and one of the most beloved dishes on the Thanksgiving table is the reliable side dish known as dressing&mdashor stuffing.

Have you ever wondered what the difference is? The origin of the two terms might seem pretty obvious: Stuffing is baked inside the bird and scooped onto our plates, while dressing is baked in a separate dish, right? In fact, whether you're baking it in or out of the turkey, the dish is almost always called dressing down South. And if you're in the Northeastern United States or parts of the Midwest, you're likely to hear it called stuffing, and that's true no matter how it's baked. Of course, over time many families move and recipes go with them, but the terms seem to be rooted in those regions.

Essentially, these are two words for the same thing: a savory mixture of bread, crackers, or grains tossed with vegetables and seasoned with herbs before being moistened and baked. Everything else depends on your preferences&mdashand what region you're from. Additions to the dish, such as sausages, ham or bacon are popular nationwide, and mushrooms and root vegetables are, too. Oysters, fresh or smoked, and occasionally mussels, mixed with crackers, are served up and down the Eastern seaboard. Cracker stuffings and dressings were common in Colonial times. Nuts and fruit have always had a place in dressings and stuffings: Hazelnuts (known as filberts in the Northwest), and walnuts are delicious, and pecans are a real classic when paired with the crumbled cornbread that is essential to most Southern and Southwestern dressing recipes. Dried fruits and fresh, seasonal fruits such as apples and pears, add their tender texture and an element of sweetness.

So, choose from one of these satisfying recipes for your Thanksgiving table and say it your way: Whether you call it dressing or stuffing, everyone will agree it's a delicious slide.
