I love the fix ahead idea! I cooked my extra turkey yesterday and used this for dressing, made a day ahead. (didn't stuff the bird for the first time ever) I fiddled with amounts, personal preference. Eliminated the salt, reduced butter by half, cut poultry seasoning by half and upped sage to 2 t. I used 20 slices of oven dried whole wheat bread and only 1 1/2 c of the broth. I usually find casserole baked dressing dry and in need of a dousing with turkey drippings but this was not at all dry. I won't ever buy a bag of stuffing crumbs again.
This dressing is dry. I had to add almost two cans of chicken broth.
Wow! I really impressed my in-laws with this recipe and all I did was follow the directions. I made this 2 separate times. One with homemade breadcrumbs and the other with store bought. The best outcome was when I took 2 loaves of bread, cubed them and dried them in the oven to make homemade breadcrumbs ( serving 16). I found that they soak up the liquid a lot more then the really dried store bought bread crumbs, allowing them to retained a lot more flavour. I did make this recipe 2 days before each dinner. It was the first dish to disappear. There were no left overs! This recipe made me look like a chef, when in reality I rarely have time to cook. Thank you!
I cubed 10 pieces of white bread and 10 pieces of rye bread instead of the bread crumbs. Didn't even dry them and it turned out WONDERFUL! I also added some fresh mushrooms and carrots which gave it some color. I made it the day before, stuck it in the refrigerator, and it was so easy to just cook it the next day. You should bake it in a 9 x 13 dish.
I made this recipe as written, with no changes or substitutions. It was great as a make-ahead dressing. Since my holiday meals are a pretty big production, I made this dressing 3 days in advance, which was wonderful. However, this is not the best dressing I've made. It's good, but I give it 5 stars because of the ability to make so far in advance - otherwise, it would be a 4.
The BEST stuffing ever. Made this for Thanksgiving as a first time recipe and it was a huge hit. I will use this recipe for years to come
Turned out okay. Covered the whole time cooking, was afraid it would get dry. Something could of been added to it for a little more zing but overall liked making it the day before. It made the day a little easier to get everything ready.
I really love this recipe and have made it several times for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The flavors are perfect!
