How Do You Make Traditional Turkey Stuffing?

Make traditional turkey stuffing by tossing bread cubes with spices, chicken broth and butter, and baking it in the oven in a dish or inside a turkey. A traditional stuffing calls for onion, celery, dried fruit and nuts.

Make a traditional stuffing by cooking 5 chopped celery stalks and 1 diced onion in 1/2 cup of butter in a skillet until the vegetables are tender. Add 1 teaspoon of dried thyme, 1/2 teaspoon of dried sage, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper and 3/4 teaspoon of salt, and pour in 1/2 cup of water and 1 can of chicken broth. Remove the mixture from the oven, and combine it in a bowl with 2 loaves of white bread cut into cubes. Stir in 1/2 cup of fresh parsley leaves, and transfer the stuffing to a baking dish. Cook, covered, at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes.

Another recipe calls for coating 1 cup chopped onion, 1 cup chopped celery and 1 cup chopped green pepper in 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and salt to taste, and then spreading the mixture on a baking sheet and roasting it at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes. Top the vegetables with 3 cups of cubed bread, and cook everything for 10 more minutes. Combine the vegetables with 2 ounces of mushrooms with the juice, 4 ounces of dried cherries, 2 ounces of pecans and 2 eggs, and season with 2 teaspoons of dried sage and parsley each. Place the stuffing in the turkey.
