Ingredients

+ Add to Shopping List
  • 1/2 cup butter or olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs, like sage or thyme, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt or 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 10 cups dried bread cubes or chunks
  • 3-4 cups chicken, turkey or vegetable stock
  • 2 large eggs, beaten

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat butter or oil in a skillet on medium-high. Add vegetables, sauté 3-5 minutes, remove from heat, add herbs, salt and pepper. In a large bowl, gently toss stuffing mix or bread cubes with the stock, eggs and skillet mixture.
Dressing: Spray 9x13-inch baking dish. Add mixture and bake 45 minutes, uncovered, on middle shelf (for a less crispy crust, cover for first 30 minutes then uncover).
Stuffing: Gently stuff mixture into clean turkey cavity (careful not to pack too tightly-this makes more than an average turkey can hold). Bake excess in a baking dish (until internal temp reaches 165°F).
