This recipe was handed down by my great-grandmother. It is a family favorite that we make every Thanksgiving. This traditional stuffing has a crispy top with a moist inside. No need to worry about stuffing the turkey this year! This tasty side-dish bakes in a casserole dish or Pyrex bowl.
- 8 cups soft bread cubes, unseasoned
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup fresh parsley, diced
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 1 cup milk, approximately
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- Mix onion, celery, parsley, melted butter, egg and poultry seasoning in a large bowl. Stir.
- Add bread crumbs and stir with a spoon to evenly distribute the mixture.
- Slowly drizzle milk over bread while stirring until bread cubes are moist but NOT soggy. (May need a bit more or less milk than this recipe calls for.).
- Stir in salt and pepper.
- Pour in a greased casserole dish or Pyrex bowl. (A 9x14" baking dish will do in a pinch).
- Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until bread cubes on top are crispy.
I really liked the stuffing, New Mom Kate. I had been wanting to try one with milk. I added some grated carrot (I love it in stuffing) and covered my pan with foil for most of the cooking time (since I like kind of "mushy" stuffing), uncovering at the end to get some crispy edges. I used one cup milk (it was pretty wet but not soggy). This was delicious tasting and I think the milk made it fluff up more. Thanks for posting. Roxygirl
I really liked this stuffing. I like my stuffing on the drier side, so I added only a half a cup of milk and it still held together.
