My version is made with day old bread, vegetables, apples and mushrooms! Easy to make ahead of time too!

Classic Stuffing Recipe


  • 1 loaf (1 lb) bread, slightly stale
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 celery heart, diced (about 1 ½ cups)
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 2 jars (4 ½ oz) sliced mushrooms, don't drain
  • 2 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups diced apple (no need to peel)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine stale bread with egg, water, celery, onion, mushrooms, and seasonings. Combine well.
  2. Press into a 9-inch square baking dish (about 2-3 quart). Once you have all your stuffing in the dish, press it in firmly.
  3. Cover stuffing with foil. Bake for 60 minutes in a 350 degree F oven. You can make this a day ahead of time too! ENJOY.
