Best Ever Stuffing

Stuffing could very well be my favorite part of Thanksgiving. Well, that and the sweet potatoes. They are the only two things I find myself going back for seconds… thirds… I really don’t know. But hey- no judging, its Thanksgiving. Seconds are part of the holiday ;)

Now not to knock my grandmas recipe, because hers is fabulous too and I am sure I’ll share it next year, but this recipe is AMAZING! My neighbors so generously are sharing the recipe with us and you are definitely want to try this out! The flavor is SO great! It is simple, but sometimes I think simplicity makes the best recipes. One of the unique things about this recipe is that you toast the bread before hand. It makes it so the bread doesn’t get too mush and just another way to add something special.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, this would make a great addition to the dinner table :)

    My family are stuffing fanatics! I know they would inhale this! Looks perfect & pinned! Love that you basically have been making Thanksgiving food in the late summer and early fall in order to already be able to blog about it now! You are SO on top of it!! Wish I was :)

    This is very similar to what my Dad used to make and now I make it...I use softened butter in mine, salt & pepper, celery & onions...being that we prefer a drier stuffing, I omit the broth; and if I want to make stuffing balls, I add an egg or two...
    This sounds good though, might have to give it a go!!!
    I love your recipes!!

    Can't wait to try this. Just what I am looking for. I don't want anything fancy in my water chestnuts, no fruit, no meat...just stuffing.
    For 9 cups of cubed bread did you do 2 loaves of typical grocery store bread? One white, one wheat?

    Turned out so good! We doubled the recipe and had to add a little more chicken broth, but definitely a great recipe!

    Just wanted to let you know I made this dressing for Thanksgiving. 5 Stars!!! I added a little more chicken broth and poultry seasoning and omitted the thyme and sage (just not are favorite). This is the best homade stuffing I have ever eaten. Everyone loved it. Thanks for sharing.:)
