Um, I never made homemade stuffing in my life. Only made the out of the box Stovetop mix. So I'm not really contributing anything important. Let me just leaveStern Smile.

My mom uses these ingredients as well, but she boils chicken leg quarters with onions to make a broth that she uses to mix everything together. Then shreds some of the chicken inside dressing as well before baking.

And a few red peppers (mild) just for some color.

She uses bread crumbs from the store by Brownberry. She also said 2-4 eggs if its big to give it fluffiness, lots of chicken broth almost till is watery cause it will get dry. Don't bake it til it's solid or it will be dried out, it will dry a lot on it's on. My granny adds gibblets to hers but my mom doesn't, and Im not touching the inside of a turkey...ever.

this is so true even with the Pepperidge farms brand.  I usually use that and add my own touches to it (sage, onions, broth, eggs, etc). By the time Im finished with it, it's LIKE homemadeLOL. But I just realized I don't have any PF's and the idea hit me "well don't folks actually MAKE stuffing themselves?" LOLI can do this.

She said you can use reg bread but you don't toast it, there is a drying process that people do by putting it in the freezer but she's not sure how.

the bread is already frozen  (sliced bread). I know it's easier to cube if it's not soft. The PF mix has crunchy bread crumbs  , that's why I was thinking I needed to toast first.

this is how we do it. 

for cornbread...use cornmeal(the one in the yellow package). you can bake the night before if it helps with you prep time.

I swear I have a recipe for everything except for stuffing. My mother and mother in law both have a secret recipe that they have yet to hand me down. My mother in laws is very classic and my moms involves ground meat and corn.

ooopsy when i said crumbs.. i meant crumbles.. or croutons rather.. and im lazy... so i usually just buy some garlic croutons..lol.

as far as cornbread drying that out-

i make it a night ahead... cook it a little longer than directions suggest (not burning it) and i leave it to dry out.

sounds like I'm taking it too far by trying to use my own bread to make the crumbs I guess.  But croutons would mean a trip to the groc store too lol

I need pics of before and after!!! Or step by step instructions. Some one thought it was a bright idea to choose me to make the stufing/dressingStern Smile. I only made it once before in the turkey and added rice in the mix.
 
I don't need any disasters since ppl are counting on me. So i'm listening and waiting on responses.
 
Purp bless your heart because I was about to go into panic mode trying to figure out how to make 2 full pans of stuffing.
 
FYI I never heard of it being called dressing. I just learn this last year from my co-worker when she volunteered to bring dressing and I sucked my teeth and shouted across the room YOU BETTA BE BRINGING RANCH since you wanna be cheap and only bring dressing for a cheap salad. Embarassinggggggg moment at work is all I have to say!!!!

i saute onions, celery, fresh sage, fresh parsley and a tiny bit of fresh rosemary (its potent) in butter.

i made my own cornbread the night before.

i also pulse a fresh loaf of Italian bread in the food processor and dry it out on about 250 in the oven.

i boil the gizzards/heart/giblet thingy in water with onion, celery (including leaves) and fresh herbs (thats the broth i use to moisten) along with one (or two depending on how much) powdered chicken bouillon cubes or packets)

crumble bread, add sauteed veggies, then chopped giblets and broth (at this point i taste for seasoning before adding the egg)

add beaten egg (1 or 2 depending on how big)

mix it well and press it into a baking dish,  i then dot it with butter and bake for about 30-35 mins on 350

Np Mrs. PH!

i would watch it just to make sure it doesn't turn too crispy, you just wanna dry it out, not necessarily brown it.

Happy cooking and Turkey day!!

@JA
I think the main difference is dressing is made with cornbread and stuffing is made with just the bread crumbs. I think. I found this in a stuffing recipe online for your bread crumbs.
 
  • To make dry bread cubes for stuffing, cut bread into 1/2-inch square pieces. (You'll need 12 to 14 slices of bread for 8 cups of dry cubes.) Spread in a single layer in a 15-1/2x10-1/2x2-inch baking pan. Bake in a 300 degree F oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until dry, stirring twice; cool. (Bread will continue to dry as it cools.) Or, let stand, loosely covered, at room temperature for 8 to 12 hours.
  • Prepare stuffing cubes and freeze up to 1 month ahead. (Do not stuff turkey until just before roasting.)

I am trying this on Thursday:





Chicken Sausage and Herb Stuffing
Skinnytaste.com
Servings: 12 • Serving Size: 3/4 cup • Old Points: 3 pt • Points+: 3 pts
Calories: 136.2 • Fat: 6.4 g • Carbs: 31.4 • Fiber: 1.7 • Protein: 3.5 g • Sugar: 20.7
Sodium: 143.1 mg  


Ingredients:

  • 14 oz French bread, crusts removed (weight after crust is removed)
  • 2 tbsp light butter (Land O Lakes)
  • 1 1/2 cups diced yellow onion
  • 1 3/4 cups (about 4 stalks) diced celery
  • 13.2 oz fresh Italian chicken sausage, casing removed ( http://www.isernio.com/Products/ChickenSausages.aspx" rel="nofollow - Isernio's )
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh sage
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 3 1/4 cups fat free, low sodium chicken broth
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • cooking spray

Directions:

Cut the bread into 1/2-inch cubes. Spread the bread out on a baking sheet and let it dry overnight - OR - place the baking sheet in a 350°F oven and bake about 20 minutes, or until the bread is dried out. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 375°F. 

In a large sauté pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and celery andsauté, stirring occasionally, until tender and translucent, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.

In the same pan over medium heat, cook the sausage, crumbling with a wooden spoon, until lightly browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Transfer the sausage to the bowl with the onion/celery mixture. 

Spray an oven proof baking dish with cooking spray (I use my misto)

Add the bread, sage and thyme to the bowl with the sausage/onion mixture and stir to combine. Add the chicken broth and stir to evenly coat the bread. Adjust salt and pepper to taste and stir to mix well. 

Transfer to the baking dish and bake for 30 minutes. Using a wooden spoon, gentlystir. Continue baking until golden, about 35 minutes more. Serve immediately.

Makes about 9 cups.

I actually toast bread because I am too cheap to buy bread crumbs.  I cut them into 16 pieces and put them into a pan that has been sauteeing garlic, onions and gizzards in a 4:1 ratio of butter and bacon fat.  I toss them together with my hands, along with enough broth to wet the mixture and sprinkle some Bell's seasoning in for taste and stuff the bird.

My mom uses these ingredients as well, but she boils chicken leg quarters with onions to make a broth that she uses to mix everything together. Then shreds some of the chicken inside dressing as well before baking.

And a few red peppers (mild) just for some color. 


I use all the above ingredients.  I use cornbread, and Pepperidge Farm Herb Seasoned Stuffing Mix.  I make a stock by using a whole chicken.  I add a can Cream Of Chicken & 1 can Cream Of Mushroom, 1 small can corn, 1 small can mushroom, diced bell pepper, shredded chicken.  The secret is to add a dash of poultry seasoning.

I've been tasked with making the dressing this year and since I've never done it before, I went online and downloaded a recipe.  I hope it turns out ok.Ermm

The recipe calls for sage, but they were sold out at the store so I was told to use sausage since sage has that same taste.  Is this a good idea?  I've seen people do it before, but since I'm new at this, I want it to be right.

I dont know the exact recipe, but my granny uses homemade cornbread, chicken stock, chicken giblets, green onions, regular onions, and celery. 

I've had dressing similar to hers, and most of the ingredients were the same, but instead of cornbread, chopped up sourdough bread was used. 

ETA: I think regular chicken meat is in there too, but Im not sure.

Is there a health food store close by?  Some health food stores sell it .  If you use sausage, make sure that you drain it well before adding to the mixture.

Thanks Claudie.  I'm in Japan so I doubt the grocery stores here would have it.  A guy who works in my building is going to see if he has some at home for me to use.  He was the one who told me to use the sausage in case he doesn't have any.

It really is,but if you're counting calories it's not a recipe to try..
You can either make your own stuffing,or use boxed stuffing..
You'll need
4 granny smith apples dinced up in small pieces
2 rolls of maple flavered sausage
1 stick of butter
1 sweet onion
2 tbs cinn
2 tbs allspice
2 tbs pepper
2 cups sugar


Brown your sausage,break it up into small peices, drain the oil off,and set the meat aside.
Boil the water,apples,sugar,and spices for 15 minutes.You want to get the apples soft,but not mushy..
Mix in the stuffing mix,and the sausage pieces,add half of the stick of butter
Use the other half to grease down your baking pans.
I bake my stuffing until it gets a nice crisp topping so 30 minutes or so....

Do not blame me for any pants,dresses,skirts,leggings,or other articles of clothing that might not fit after eating......
