    CarrolJ's Note:

    This is my own recipe...which I have fine tuned over the years. It is not low cholesterol unless you would choose to use egg-beaters which will make the stuffing a little less rich in flavor. I have made this with and without meat. This makes enough to stuff a 20 pound turkey...or a 10-12 pound turkey and a extra pan full. If baking in a extra pan...seal well with tinfoil so that it doesn't dry out.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 loaf dry bread, torn or cut into small pieces
    • 2 tablespoons ground sage
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper
    • 2 cups chopped celery
    • 1/2 cup chopped onion
    • 1 dozen well beaten egg
    • 3 cups water
    • 1 tablespoon chicken soup base, see note


    1. 1
      NOTE: Chicken Soup Base is a concentrated paste purchased in the grocery store which is very rich in flavor.
    2. 2
      If you cannot find it in your store substitute with 3 chicken bouillion cubes and 2 Tablespoons of cooking oil which will give you a reasonable substitution.
    3. 3
      Combine all ingredients making sure that everything is blended.
    4. 4
      Avoid overmixing so that bread doesn't get too mushy.
    5. 5
      Stuff and Bake according to favorite method.
    6. 6
      I love using the popular baking bags since it is so easy and gives a wonderfully moist product at the end.
    7. 7
      NOTE** servings are approximate-- it easily serves 12-15 people with some left-overs.
    8. 8
      Time depends on method used-- I put down 3 1/2 hours since that is the average time if inside a 20 pound turkey in a baking bag.

      Incredibly moist with a delicious sage flavor. Turkey and dressing are the highlight of our Canadian Thanksgiving meal. When preparing for these special occasions I always am sure to include at least one new item to serve along with the expected fare. Not having a loaf of dry bread on hand I cubed up a fresh one. With using fresh instead of dry cubes which would absorb more liquid I cut back on the water. Needing to make for lower cholesterol I went with six eggs and it still made for a moist and rich stuffing which was enjoyed by all. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
