This was a great recipe! I added chicken broth to the potatoes when mashing. also, didnt have celery on hand so used about 1/3 cup of green bell pepper. i fried my bread cubes in butter too after I shook them up in some italian season and salt/pepper. This is a great side dish when u need something heavier. GOOD EATS!!!

You are right about this old stand by. My recipe has a note that says " this filling is mainly used to fill hungry Pennsylvania Dutch stomachs!" I have taken this to a grieving family and it is just a little different from regular mashed potatoes or stuffing. A little suggestion: you can also briefly fry your cubed/torn(which ever you prefer) bread in butter before adding to filling and baking. Gives it that nice occasional buttery bite.
