How to Make Old Fashioned Bread Stuffing from Scratch

By LeafTV Contributor

Stuffing isn't just a side dish that goes with the Thanksgiving turkey; stuffing can be eaten any time of the year as an alternative to the routine potato, rice or pasta side dish. Stuffing is also a good accompaniment to pork chops, chicken, roast beef and yes, even turkey. Use store bought stuffing bread or recycle bread heels for a side dish your family will love.

Making your own stuffing from scratch is easier than you may realize.

Step 1

Prepare bread crusts by cutting them into 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch cubes. Place cubes in large bowl.

Step 2

In a saucepan heat chicken broth. Add in onion and celery and simmer until vegetables are transparent, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Add salt, pepper and spices and stir continuously to prevent scorching, cooking for an additional minute.

Step 4

Pour broth mixture over stuffing bread. Toss gently to make sure all bread is coated.

Step 5

Stuff chicken or turkey with stuffing, or bake stuffing alone by placing it in an 9x9 inch greased baking pan and baking 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Makes 4 one cup servings.
