I grew up on this but we call it dressing. We do not stuff our turkey, instead this is served on the side. The only thing I do differently is air dry the bread for a few days on cookie sheets - not a few hours (turning several times to make sure both sides dry out completely). The bread is nice and dried out and the dressing does not get soggy. I also double the recipe using two loaves of bread (my family loves the leftovers on top of their turkey sandwiches). Because I double the recipe, I bake this in a roasting pan (and use a little cooking spray on the pan to ease cleanup). When you're making this, add a little broth at a time and stop when it seems right for your taste (if it's too dry then add more, but if it's nice and moist then stop). I have made this with poultry seasoning and I have also made it with sage - they are both very, very good and there is really not a huge difference in taste, so it's just personal preference. I have made several types of dressings and stuffings but always come back to this family favorite.

This did not turn out as stuffing at all! Just soggy bread. Followed the reciped exactly, but it came out nasty. Won't make it again.

This is basically the same recipe handed down thru the years in my family but for 1 change. We also use 2 beaten eggs which help keep the stuffing together. And of course ours fits a 19 - 22 lbs turkey. My family looks forward to this stuffing each Thanksgiving as that is the only time I make it and a turkey.

Excellent stuffing! I've made this stuffing for several years, experimenting a little each time. I now add 2 Granny Smith apples - peeled, chopped and sauteed with the onion and celery; 1 cup chopped walnuts; and for a meat variety I fry up 1 pkg. of ground Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sausage with sage, drain fat, then add the sausage to the bread crumbs before adding broth. The vegetables, apples and sausage will moisten the bread somewhat. For beginners, add broth slowly while mixing the stuffing so bread does not become too wet or soggy. I usually use less than 1 can of chicken broth. (You can add any leftover broth to your gravy.) Family and friends devour this stuffing! Grandkids love it! UPDATE Nov.2008: I now include 1 small 6 oz. bag of craisins with the above ingredients. Delicious.

This is exactly the recipe I use but with French Bread..not white bread...It gives the dressing much more substance and it holds together much better..:)

This stuffing recipe was a hit at our last Thanksgiving dinner. My husband was skeptical (his mom's recipe is "the best" he says) but now he wants me to make this every year!! Toasting the bread kept it from getting soggy and gummy like most recipes taste. This is a great recipe!

My guests- americans and europeans- all liked this. However, I used both old french bread and sliced white bread - 1/2 and 1/2. I also used more poultry seasoning than it calls for and added some salt to bring out the flavors. In addition, I sauteéd the onion until almost caramelized - they were very golden -and added sliced mushrooms at that point. I then cooked them until the mushroom were cooked. It was a hit, but only after modifying it. I actually added bread as it was too soggy.

My first attempt at making dressing "from scratch". What was I worried about? This was so easy! The kids loved helping me cut up the bread, which I did first. Then we sprinkled a little onion and garlic powder on the cubes and toasted them in the oven. I will add a little more broth next time but... I think that really all depends on if you like your dressing more on the moist or dry side. I was quite proud of my first attempt! Thanks! Yummy!
