Basic Yankee Bread Stuffing

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This is my mother-in-law's recipe for traditional bread stuffing. Bread, pork and seasonings blend to create a perfect filling for the holiday bird. Use more bread if needed to create a stuffing that's moist, but not mushy.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Place pork sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Place the celery and onions in the saucepan, and slowly cook and stir until tender.
  • In a large bowl, place the sausage, celery, onions, bread, sage, salt and pepper.
  • Beat the eggs in small bowl and mix into the sausage mixture.
  • Pour broth into the mixture. Use more broth if needed. The stuffing should be moist, not mushy.
