  1. Melt butter in saucepan. Saute onion in melted butter until soft, but not brown. Add celery and stir well. Add 2 cups chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Place bread cubes into large mixing bowl. Add eggs, salt, pepper, sage, thyme, and marjoram. Add onion-celery mixture; combine thoroughly. If still too dry, add more chicken broth. Makes enough to stuff a 10 to 15 pound turkey.

  • Note
  • To bake dressing out of the turkey, place in a buttered baking dish, and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes or until the top is lightly browned. More broth may be needed for this method to keep it from drying out.

Exactly what I was looking for! Tastes just like what Grandma makes except that this is an actual recipe, whereas Grandma adds a "little of this and a pinch of that" :) I'll be making this again!

Instructions were not really clear for a first timer. Bouillon mixture I assumed was the chicken broth. Marjoram was not listed but directions made it sound like a necessity when you have only a printed copy instead of online view where it said marjoram can be substituted so it was not known.

Great recipe for homemade stuffing! I cut this back to 8 servings and used 1 egg and eyeballed the herbs adding a bit of marjoram. This was a nice alternative to mashed potoates for a change!

Good basic recipe.I used Italian seasoning (3/4 teaspoon) it has all 3 ingredients. No measurement for the Marjoram.Turned out quite well, no leftovers.Thanks.

Very good. Moist and flavorful without being overpowering. Got many good comments from the family. The amount is generous and it expanded in the turkey quite a bit!

This recipe was a big hit! I made it for Easter dinner and it complimented my ham very well. I changed the serving size to 8 and I also used rubbed sage in addition to ground sage and added in marjoram and thyme for more flavor. I used 1 can of chicken broth and baked it a little longer so the top would be crispy. It was delicious!

I would give this 4.75 stars if I could. I accidentally added 1 tablespoon of fresh pepper, instead of 1 teaspoon. I also added all 3 cups of chicken bouillon. Next time I will use less salt, the buillion was salty enough as is. Wonderful recipe and I love that it doesn't have any sausage meat. This will definately become my standard stuffing recipe!
