Simple Stuffing

Stuffing (or dressing) is a staple to any holiday dinner table. This one is simple and perfect just the way it is – But just like any other recipe, you can add to it to make your own version!

SImple Stuffing

Course: Side Dish
Author: The Mill Town Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 1 12oz Bag Unseasoned Stuffing Croutons
  • 1/2 cup Finely Diced Yellow Onion
  • 1/2 cup Finely Chopped Celery
  • 1 tsp Fresh Thyme Leaves
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Sage Leaves Finely Minced
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Rosemary Finely Minced
  • 1 tsp Celery Seed
  • 1 cube Knorr Chicken Bouillon Cube (2 Servings)
  • 1 stick Butter
  • 2 cups Chicken Stock

Notes

Preheat your oven to 375
  • In a skillet, melt your stick of butter on medium/high heat
  • Add your onions, celery, bouillon, spices and herbs to the hot butter and saute for just a couple of minutes to infuse that butter with all of those flavors
  • Separately, put your unseasoned stuffing croutons into a large bowl
  • Pour all of your butter mixture onto your breadcrumbs and add in just a little bit of chicken broth – gently toss with a large spoon to begin to combine
  • Keep adding small amounts of stock and tossing in between until all of your stock has been absorbed
  • You’re looking for moist breadcrumbs, but not too soggy…you want them to hold their shape.  Add more or less stock, as needed, but about two cups should be perfect for a 12oz bag of breadcrumbs
 
  • Pour your stuffing mixture into a baking dish and cover with foil
  • Bake at 375 for 30 minutes then remove the foil and bake for another 10 minutes to achieve that yummy crunchy top
If meat is your thing, you can add cooked and shredded turkey, or some cooked and drained sausage to your mixture before baking the stuffing – or you can add in some dried cranberries, to incorporate a little sweetness.  Or, like my family, you can enjoy this recipe as is!
