Thanksgiving Stuffing

Hello November!  November and May have always been my favorite months.  May, not sure why, but as long as I can remember I knew I always wanted to get married in May.  Maybe because it’s the beginning of summer?  Maybe because it sounds pretty?  No idea.  But married in May I did.

As far as November, now that is perfectly clear, my two favorite holidays.  My birthday! and Thanksgiving!  Yayyy!

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, maybe since last Thanksgiving, you probably remember that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of all the holidays.  Yes even Christmas.  I know, I know.

So in honor of November and my favorite holiday, I have 2 gifts for you!

Thanksgiving Stuffing
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 8
  • 6 cups bread- cubed and left to stale at least overnight
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3-4 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 Tbls thyme, fresh or dried
  • 1 Tbls sage, fresh or dried
  • 2 cups chicken stock, half a carton
  • ¼ cup butter
  1. Preheat oven to 350*
  2. In a large saute pan, melt butter
  3. Cook herbs, celery and onions until just starting to brown.
  4. Toss in bread cubes and stir thoroughly
  5. Stir in chicken stock, and combine thoroughly
  6. Add to a baking dish and bake for about 1 hour, top should be nicely brown and crispy.
If you want to cook ahead of time, which for Thanksgiving, I always recommend! Bake for about 45 minutes, so it's cooked, but not crispy or brown yet. On Thanksgiving Day, let stuffing come to room temp. After you pull the turkey from the oven to let it rest. Put stuffing in oven for about 20 minutes to finish cooking and get brown and crispy.
