Old Fashioned Bread Stuffing

Old-Fashioned-Bread-Stuffing-2

Ingredients:

3-4 loaves of white bread (or 5 if you like leftovers)
Water
Chicken broth
Insides of the turkey
2 bunches of celery
1 or 2 onions
2 Tablespoons butter
½ teaspoon sage
Oysters (optional)
Mushrooms (optional)

Directions:

1. The night before you want to eat the stuffing, break the bread into small pieces (about 1 inch squares) into 2 huge bowls or pots. Let the bread sit overnight to dry out.

2. The next day, after you remove the insides of turkey, boil them in water in quart sauce pan until cooked (about 20-30 minutes). Remove insides for later use or discard. Keep water and put aside.

3. Preheat oven to 350° F.

4. Chop onion and celery and place into food processor until minced.

5. Melt 2-3 Tablespoons of butter in large saucepan.

6. Sauté onion and celery until heated through. Do not brown! (Sauté mushrooms also at this time if wanted). Depending on how much stuffing you want and how much celery and onion you've chopped, you may have to sauté the onion and celery in two parts.

7. Once cooked, pour the onion/celery mixture directly over the dried out bread.

8. Pour ½ teaspoon sage over bread/onion/celery mixture.

9. Then take your reserved water and pour slowly over bread. The bread will shrink as you do this.

10. Be careful not to pour too much water in.

11. Mixture thoroughly and smell/taste for perfect stuffing.

12. If you need more liquid, open a can of chicken broth and pour over bread. If you need more spice, add more sage.

13. If you are using oysters, add them now.

14. Once stuffing is of a consistency that it will stick together and does not look too dry, do not add more liquid.

15. Either stuff in turkey to be baked in oven, or put in 9 x 13 pan. If using oysters, it is recommended that you bake the stuffing in a pan so as to ensure the oysters will be cooked through.

16. Bake in 350° oven for 45 minutes to an hour. You want the stuffing to have a nice brown crust on top.
