This is a very basic typical stuffing. The sage complements the turkey exceedingly well. It is a down and dirty no frills bread stuffing.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the onions and celery in 4 tablespoons butter until soft.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the dried bread, sage, parsley, salt, and pepper.
  3. Add the onion mixture along with the remaining melted butter to the bread mixture.
  4. Beat the egg and add to the mixture.
  5. Toss until well mixed.
  6. Add the broth slowly while tossing mixture to moisten thoroughly, making sure to not make the stuffing soupy.
  7. Stuff the turkey or bake alongside in a greased casserole, in a 325 degree oven for 30 minutes.

I think it's great ! The rewiewer that said too bitter did you not realize dried herbs are weaker in taste ? fresh is ALWAYS STRONGER. HAPPY HOLIDAYS

This is a decent basic dressing recipe. I don't understand why people have to be rude when posting reviews. While too much parsley can be a little bitter, I can't help but wonder how much dried parsley vs fresh the previous poster used.

I thought this was terrible! I've never tried making dressing before so I thought I'd go with this traditional recipe. The only alteration I made was using dried parsely instead of fresh. It was VERY bitter tasting! 3 of us tried it and couldn't finish our portions. I threw the rest of the pan to the dogs...they gave it 5 stars ;)
