Betty Crocker offers an easy recipe for classic bread stuffing that calls for butter, celery, onion and bread cubes. Season the stuffing with thyme, salt, pepper and ground sage.
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.
