Full Answer

In a 4-quart Dutch oven, melt 3/4 cup of butter over medium-high heat. Place 1 1/2 cups of chopped celery and 1 cup of chopped onion into the Dutch oven and cook until tender, stirring occasionally. When tender, remove the ingredients from the heat and set aside.

In a large bowl, mix 9 cups of soft bread cubes, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of ground sage and 1/4 teaspoon of ground pepper. The recipe also calls for thyme, and either fresh or dried works well. If using dried thyme, use 1/2 teaspoon, but if using fresh thyme, chop 1 1/2 teaspoons. Toss the ingredients together, then use as a side or to stuff a turkey. This recipe yields enough stuffing to stuff a 10- to 12-pound roasted turkey.

This recipe only takes about 20 minutes to make and serves 10 people. It is highly rated on the Betty Crocker website with 4.5 stars out of 5 stars. Most of the reviewers claim that this stuffing is a delicious side dish. Some even claim to add extra ingredients, such as sausage or mushroom, to give it a unique taste.
