Seasoned Stuffing Recipe

Seasoned Stuffing Recipe

When I think about the Thanksgiving and Christmas meals, I always think of stuffing. My mom and grandma always just made stuffing from a box. However, I prefer to make my own from scratch. Boxed stuffing is okay, but homemade stuffing is so much better. This year I invented my own recipe for seasoned stuffing based on the ingredients in other stuffing recipes that I have tried or read.


  • 8 cups of whole grain bread half-inch cubes
  • 1 cup of finely chopped white onion
  • 1 cup of butter
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 1/4 cup of dried sage leaves
  • 1/4 cup of dried thyme leaves
  • 1/4 cup of dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 cup of chicken broth


  1. Place the bread cubes in a large mixing bowl with a lid.
  2. Combine the salt, dried sage, dried thyme, dried parsley, and black pepper in a small bowl.
  3. Pour the seasoning over the bread cubes.
  4. Place the lid on the bowl.
  5. Shake the bowl to evenly coat the bread cubes in seasoning.
  6. Allowed the seasoned bread cubes to sit overnight.
  7. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  8. Melt the butter in a large sauté pan.
  9. Add the onions to the butter and sauté until tender.
  10. Add two cups of the seasoned bread crumbs to the onion-butter mixture.
  11. Add the buttered bread cubes to the remaining bread cubes and toss.
  12. Slowly pour the chicken broth over the stuffing until moist but not mushy.
  13. Place the stuffing in a greased glass baking pan.
  14. Bake uncovered for 10 to 15 minutes or until browned and hot.
  15. Serve immediately.
  16. Refrigerate any uneaten stuffing.
