How to make your own stuffing for Thanksgiving Dinner

I love stuffing. In fact, I was raised on stuffing. And I’ll be honest. I’m not that picky. Stove top is great. Homemade is great. Give me more stuffing. Fork it over, as they say. So this post truly comes from the heart.

You see, I never actually made the homemade stuffing until last year, when I cooked my very first turkey. I was totally overwhelmed and almost caved, but my family threatened encouraged me to make the real thing. So I did! And you can too. It’s seriously the easiest part of the meal prep.

There are probably a million different ways to make stuffing, but today I decided to share our family recipe (with permission from my Mama. Thanks Mama!) Enjoy!

Homemade Stuffing

Prep Time: 10 minutes


  • 1 whole loaf of white bread (crumbled)
  • 1/2 stick melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 TBS sage
  • Add to taste:
  • chopped celery
  • chopped onion
  • garlic salt


  1. Mix all ingredients and stuff into turkey when ready to bake! (If mixture feels too sticky, just add more bread)
  2. Enjoy!

    yes, it really is the easiest part of that whole dinner. Next year if your feeling a little more daring. add some mushrooms, apples, green pepper, sausage and a little white wine…..delish :)
