This recipe has come about by trial and error, I finally got it right about 20 yeras ago, and my family and friends won't let me change it. Enough stuffing for a 15-18 lb bird.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 cups toasted white bread, torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup walnuts, lightly crushed
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup finely chopped green onion
  • 1 cup sliced black olives
  • 1 turkey giblets, finely chopped (including neck meat, I also buy extra chicken giblets and cook and use them)
  • 3 -4 cups turkey broth (I like a very moist stuffing, you can adjust to your taste)
  • 12 cup butter, melted
  • salt and pepper


  1. Place torn bread in large mixing bowl, add layers of celery, green onions, olives and giblets, pour enough broth to keep moist, repeat, until all ingredients have been used.
  2. Use remainder of broth if any and mix well, season with salt and pepper.
  3. Pour melted butter and mix again.
  4. Stuff your bird.
