Stuffing is too good to only serve at Thanksgiving and those premade box mixes are sad imitators of a side dish that will only take about 10 minutes to make. Why not surprise your family tonight with a side dish of homemade potato bread stuffing with their roast chicken?

12ouncespotato bread cubes
8ouncesmushrooms sliced (optional)
3cupschicken stock more or less as needed
1½teaspoonspoultry seasoningmore or less to your taste
melt butter in a saucepan add prepared veggies into the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the veggies are soft.
Place the potato bread cubes (or bread of your choice) into a large mixing bowl. Add the cooked veggies, including all the liquid from the pan into the bowl with the bread cubes.Add the stock, reserving half a cup, and mix well. Your stuffing mix may need more or less stock, it should be wet but not soggy. Use more or less stock as needed. **You can use vegetable or turkey stock instead of chicken stock.
Place the stuffing into your baking dish or casserole. Cover with non-stick foil and bake at 350 degrees for 75-90 minutes. If you want a crispy top, uncover the stuffing for the last 10 minutes of baking.I used a 9 x 9 inch baking pan. You don't want the stuffing to be too thin, it should be 2+ inches thick.
Serve and enjoy!
My basic recipe is for a 10-12 pound turkey. For a 20 pound turkey I make 3 times my basic recipe so I have plenty of leftovers!
