When a few of the members of my family went gluten-free, a big point of contention was the fact there was now no stuffing within the turkey. In my household, because we favour ham for special holidays, so we tend to make a pan of stuffing that goes in the oven alongside it. Making stuffing is a perfect recipe for a beginner, and one of my favourites because it can be made with a lot ingredients that you already have on hand. I save the heels of my bread, and purchase a loaf from the 50% off rack to make stuffing with.
Our recipe fills a 11×17″ pan which is usually enough to feed my family of four. For larger crowds, I suggest making a larger pan (or two) if you have stuffing lovers in your crowd.
4 Ingredient Sure Fire, Simple to Make Stuffing
- 4 stalks of celery
- 1 med onion red or white
- 8-10 slices of bread
- 2 tbsp of poultry seasoning
- 1/2-3/4 cup of water or chicken broth
- 8 pats of butter
- 1 spray of no stick spray
- Aluminum Foil
Spray 11x17" intended container with no-stick spray.
Dice celery & onion.
Dice bread into crouton-like sizes
Add 1/2-3/4 cup of water at a time to moisten bread and mix in small bowl until damp (the amount of water largely depends on what type of bread you've picked - brown seems to sop up more).
Sprinkle 2 tbsp of poultry seasoning over bread mixture
Add 8 pats of butter and cover with aluminum foil.
Cook for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove lid & allow 5 more minutes if you like your dressing crispy!
