Mom’s Thanksgiving Stuffing

Day old whole wheat French bread, bacon, onion, celery, sage and parsley are combined then baked to make a delicious Thanksgiving stuffing to serve with your turkey. If you like sausage in your stuffing, try this Chicken and Herb Stuffing, or try these Stuffing Muffins for easy portion control. And if you’re gluten-free you’ll love this Brown Rice Stuffing.

My mom always made Thanksgiving dinner and now I am continuing the tradition. She loves cooking and entertaining and loves to host. When she did, we all helped out by bringing a side dish, appetizers, and dessert so she’s wasn’t doing all the work. This way we got to enjoy our time together because isn’t that what it’s all about?

I always loved my Moms homemade stuffing. I’ve taken her recipe and lightened it up slightly without sacrificing the taste. For more people double this recipe! Mom always stuffs the turkey with one batch, and makes another batch in a casserole dish served on the side.

It’s best to cut the bread and let it sit out overnight to get hard, but if your pressed for time you can put it in the oven at 250°F for about 30 minutes, stirring half way until the bread is completely firm.

How do you spend your Thanksgiving and who’s doing the cooking?
