  • You should try making your own stuffing if you’ve never tried it before.  It’s really easy, it just requires time in the oven.  Here’s the recipe I love using for homemade stuffing.  When planned ahead, this stuffing always tastes so much better than anything boxed!
Homemade Stuffing Mix
4 cups dried bread cubes and crumbs
1/4 tsp. lemon pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. dried chives
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning

dash celery seed
2 tsp. dried onions
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
1/8 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. powdered chicken bouillon
4 TBS canned butter or oil
To make Homemade Stuffing Mix:
Cut bread into 1/2 inch cubes and spread on a cookie sheet to bake at 300 degrees for 20 minutes.  Reduce oven temperature to 200 degrees and continue baking for 2 hours.  Remove dried bread and add seasonings.  Heat 1 3/4 cups of water or broth to boiling and add 4 TBS butter or oil.  Remove from heat and add dried bread and seasonings and let sit for 5 minutes.
