Thanksgiving Stuffing (Cheat! Using Stove Top)

Total Time

Last year I used my method of making turkey/chicken stuffing and used the pre-made packaged mix. My family never knew the difference. Easy and quick with that homemade taste.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute onions and celery in butter.
  2. Sprinkle with poultry seasoning.
  3. Set aside to cool slightly.
  4. Toss this mixture into your favorite dry stuffing mix.
  5. Heat broth and set aside.
  6. Read directions on your favorite stuffing mix box.
  7. Add enough hot water to the broth to make up the required liquid needed.
  8. (Omit butter the recipe calls for as it was already used to saute vegetables.)
  9. Pour over stuffing/vegetables mixture and mix well.
  10. Stuff your chicken or turkey. For a side dish place stuffing in a baking dish; cover and bake for 15 to 25 minutes at 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

tasted really good, and i am not a stuffing lover. this was my thanksgiving stuffing. i did find that i had to take the tin foil off and bake it an extra 5 minutes to make it less soggy.

Yes, however Melany *, you did not necesarilly have to bake it for 5 minutes. If you like you stuffing firm, borderline dry (like the kids like it), you can just take it out of the oven and let it rest for a few minutes. That way it doesn't dry out or evaporate the spices. Just a tip. Hope that jelps you out, since I know this is also a staple for Christmas dinner as well. Tchuss!

This was very easy and delicious. We thought the seasoning was perfect and I didn't change a thing, except to use poultry seasoning instead of stuffing seasoning. It tasted like my mom's home-made stuffing and I know how much work goes into that! I don't think I will make plain old Stove Top again, it was so easy to make this and it tastes home-made. Thanks!
