My moms favorite.


  1. Dice onions.
  2. Put them in a pan with just enough water to cover them and parboil.
  3. Chop the fesh sage finely, if using.
  4. Drain the onions.
  5. Mix fresh or powdered sage and oninons in a bowl with the bread crumbs.
  6. Melt butter, add to stuffing, and season to taste.
  7. Stuff the bird of your choice or cook at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes in a well greased pan.

I used homemade seeded wholemeal bread, and it was superb.

Good basic...but after seeing the other reviews @ dry, I added an egg and 1 cup of chicken broth. That did the trick. Cuts nicely into squares; served with mushroom/onion gravy.

I thought this was really nice, but have to agree with Chef#1059501 that it was a bit on the dry side. i didn't follow the recipe exactly so perhaps I didn't use enough butter, but next time i may use a little egg to bind it togther. Other than that the taste was fab!
