  • 10 Loaves of Bread (suggest White or Whole Grain Wheat), Tear into small 1/2" pieces
  • 2 Sticks of Butter or Margarine, Melted
  • * Water, enough to keep moist
  • 6 Med-Lg Onions, Chopped
  • 2 Celery "Groups", Chopped
  • 1/3 box "Bell's" Brand Turkey Seasoning

Breaking Bread

This recipe is designed for a large 22 lbs. Turkey. This recipe can be reduced for a 10-12 lbs. Turkey by using half of the listed ingredient amounts.

  • The first thing to do is to literally break up the bread into small pieces, about the size of a quarter.
  • Chop the onions
  • Melt the Butter in a saucepan
  • Mix all the ingredients together and make sure they are blended evenly; don't use too much water or it will come out soggy!
  • Stuff the Turkey and Cook According to Recommended Cooking Time

You will have extra stuffing left over after stuffing the turkey.

  • Lightly Butter a Glass Casserole Dish and put the remaining Stuffing in the dish
  • Cover with Aluminum Foil
  • Cook in Oven @ 350 Degrees for 1 Hour

Optional Add-Ins

You can always add things to this recipe to make it even better! Consider adding the following ingredients:

  • Meat such as Sausage, Chorizo, etc.
  • Cranberries
  • Raisins
  • Nuts
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Fruit

      Hello there ComfortB! Long time no see! This is my mom's recipe and I have always enjoyed making it together as a family the night before Thanksgiving. French bread...that sounds awesome. I'll have to try that some time. Thanks for the suggestion and for stopping by. I appreciate your comment and votes!

      Great recipe. I never did like those store-bought stuffing. I do prefer crust made from leftover French Bread. Something to do for thanksgiving. Thanks Matthew! Voted up and useful.

      Hello again Kathryn Stratford ! I too love Stovetop but there's nothing like homemade stuffing! The Bell's Seasoning really is the frosting on the cake! I appreciate your comments! Thanks!

      Looks delicious! I like Stove Top stuffing, because it is convenient, but I make it homemade on occasion. And the "Bell's seasoning" really spices it up just right! I like your section on add-ins. Very nice.

      Me too mvillecat! I love the Fall! Autumn is the best season of the year. That's when all the fruit and vegetables finish growing their final crops and the leaves and breathing air are great! I have a lot of fun every year getting together with my sisters, mother, aunts and cousins and making this with my family. It gets better every year!

      Wow! You have made it simple and structured so anyone can do it. And cutting the recipe by half or thirds would work for a smaller bird or a small gathering. Nice. :)
