Directions

Print
  1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1/2 cup of the chicken broth. Add the onions and cook for 10 minutes until onions have softened.
  2. In a bowl, combine the cooked onions, remaining broth, bread, paprika, egg substitute and salt and pepper. Mix well.
  3. Place mixture inside the cavity of a turkey or place it in a casserole dish. If stuffing is to be baked separately from the turkey, place stuffing in a preheated 350-degree oven and bake for 45 minutes.
  4. Variations include - Herb Stuffing: Add 1 tablespoon mixed chopped sage, rosemary, and parsley. Fruit Stuffing: Add 1/2 cup diced tart apples, washed cranberries, or diced pears. Sweet Stuffing: Add 1 teaspoon allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, or ginger. Mushroom Stuffing: Add 1 cup sliced mushrooms (white or wild). Saute with the onions. Cook until mushrooms are soft. Chestnut Stuffing: Add 1 cup roasted chestnuts, peeled (chestnuts are low in fat). To save time, use a jar of water-packed chestnuts (some grocers stock these around the holidays) instead of roasting the chestnuts. Dried Fruit Stuffing: Add 1 cup diced dried apricots, apples, figs, cranberries, or cherries. Corn Bread Stuffing: Replace 3 cups of the whole-grain bread with 3 cups cornbread.

Ours turned out too dry - could be our fault. The recipe didn't call for it, but I think it should have been covered (we cooked ours outside the bird). I'll try it that way next time and see if ...

I used challah bread because I forgot to buy the bread for this, plus I added dried cranberries and toasted walnuts to this for Christmas 2001. It was really, really easy and tasted great. I pl...

I cooked the onions first. Almost to a carmelized affect, then added a tablespoon of sugar and 3 tablespoons of butter in with the onions in the pan. On the side I tore off fresh bread into cube...

Pretty Good. I added mushrooms & it was kind of gluppy so I broke up the glup pieces half-way through cooking. I think my bread crumbs weren't fresh enough also. Not really the recipe's fault.

This was a very simple recipe to follow! I toasted bread before cutting, I used vegetable broth instead of Chicken, 2 onions, a pinch of cayenne, and real egg. Used it in a broccoli casserole d...

I reduced the whole wheat bread to 3 cups and added 3 cups of corn toasting bread. I also added chopped chestnuts, which I roasted (1 lb unshelled) before adding to the mixture. While everyone...

1 tablespoon of paprika?Maybe other reviewers only added a teaspoon, I did a double take and then eventually trusted the recipe which was a big mistake. I made it outside of a turkey and it cam...

Very bland. I even added smoked almonds, onion powder, garlic powder and sundry other things to pump it up and it was still a flop. It was also kind of mushy. Healthy, yes. Delicious, not so muc...
