Potato Bread Stuffing

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?

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces potato bread cubes
  • 4 ounces butter
  • ½ medium onion diced
  • 3 stalks celery diced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms sliced (optional)
  • 3 cups chicken stock more or less as needed
  • teaspoons poultry seasoning more or less to your taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Dice celery and onion. Slice mushrooms.
  • 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!

Notes

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!
