"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."
Serving Size: 1 (193 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"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!"
"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. "
"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!"
"I have been doing this for years. My family loves it and it take a lot of the work out of stuffing."
"For those of us who think Stovetop is already TOO heavily seasoned, I recommend leaving out the extra seasoning and adding four slices of bread, diced. (Slightly stale or very-lightly toasted bread works best.)"
"Great recipe! I used my "Crock Pot" for the dressing. Just mix ..spray pot with cooking spray, place stuffing mixture into pot and place on low. I did this about 5 hours before dinner. Not only easier but saves oven space."
"This was good except that it is REALLY salty. Make sure to use unsalted butter, low sodium broth or else get the low sodium Stove Top mix. I added in 4 slices of toasted bread to help with this and also added extra water to get the right texture."
"I Made this stuffing for Christmas dinner and it was wonderful! Very easy to make, will make again!"
"I just use one box of Chicken Stove Top. I saute lots of celery and onions.
I use just 11/4 c. broth and a bit of rubbed sage.
Then I cover it and bake at 350º for about 30 min. Uncover and get top
crusty, about 10 min.
It's just like grandma's...wonderful!"
"This was very nice. Thanks for posting Aroostook. Since it was recipe of the day today it will probably be reviewed a lot but I wanted to get mine in as well. This was yummy. I used one box turkey Stove Top and one box Cornbread Stove Top and that really made it seem homemade. My medium onions turned out to be one cup and it worked well. No too much and not too little. Instead of baking it. I stirred and tossed it over high heat for 3 or 4 minutes to make sure all the bread pieces were softened. I added raisins as well at the end. Wonderful even to those who don't care for stuffing! Enjoy! ChefDLH.
Update: Made it again this year. Just as good. Love it. Thanks. A family member not attending this year said she would miss it."
"Making this stuffing with stove top turkey flavor, and chicken comes out nicely. (2/1)
I use a mini-chopper to finely dice the celery, mince...the celery, onion, mushroons, and saute in butter.
I cook one pound of Jimmy dean bulk breaksfast sausage. Drain, and stir into the cooked vegetables.
I then add the water in the amount per box of stuffing, and add some chicken broth as well.
Add in stuffing (dry box ingredient) toss...
I like to scoop these into muffin pans, as they make a nice form for presentation, and children like the muffin idea.
As all is throroughly cooked so I bake in the oven only to heat through, and give some nice texture to form of muffin...20 -30 minutes uncovered... You can cover with foil to prevent tops from drying out too much. Don't place at top of oven to keep that from happening.
I have never added raw egg, but this may help to hold it together, and will try it today, along with the idea of adding the lightly toasted potato bread....I wonder how a can of campbell's cream of chicken soup stirred in would taste! (or cream of celery or mushroom!) You could easily stir the can of soup into the water/broth to heat up and add to the dry mix with vegies!
We shall see! Happy Thanksgiving everyone! :)"
"This was a great time saver at Thanksgiving dinner. I would have rated it 5 stars which it probably was but my wife seemed to think it was just okay. Of course SHE usually makes the stuffing so I think she may have been biased. I tripled the recipe and used turkey stock that I had made the day before. I think this is a good base for lots of stuffing dishes. Thanks for posting."
"This was good, but still tasted like Stove Top stuffing. I used 1 onion and 2 stalks celery. I would suggest using unsalted butter and low sodium broth. I didn't and it was quite salty for us."
"I dont really care for stuffing or dressing, but I had family over for Thanksgiving, and we all know that stuffing is part of thanksgiving. My mom who has always madeit from scratch watched me throw it together in 5 minutes, and bake it uncovered (I forgot the lid) and I actually had to fight to keep some of the leftovers, it was delicious and oh so easy. Thanks"
"This was very yummy! Everyone ate it up and nobody knew it was stove top. :)"
"I have tried many recipes over the years, and have usually thrown out most of what I didn't eat myself. This year I used this recipe and received several compliments!"
"I have been doing this for years and no one knows..I do one on the stove and also stuff the bird. I also use whole cranberries in the can to two packets and mix it well with some orange juice and add some corn oil .So I have one sweet with the cranberries and do the other with mushrooms and cream of mushrooms soup.So many ways to make this and no one needs to know :)"
"I make it using Peppridge Farm mix. Just as written. It is a "must have" for my family Thanksgiving!"
"Great recipe! I added the turkey neck and giblets as well, only used chicken broth no water. It turned out perfect! Thanks!"
"This was a hit at our Thanksgiving dinner. I thought it seemed a bit dry, but I might have been the only one! When people were packing up leftovers to take home, my DH had to grab some for himself to have the next day, before it was gone. I doubled the recipe and I used extra gibblet broth and my own seasoning mix. I'll definitely be using this recipe again, but won't be afraid of adding a bit more broth. I also might add mushrooms, which might be a better way of adding moisture and extra flavor. Thanks!"
