Homemade Bread Dressing
Thanksgiving and Christmas is right around the corner, and all over the world, dinners are being planned. This time of year, turkeys are on sale, stock up to enjoy all year long.
What is a Holiday meal without homemade bread dressing? It is unheard of! I grew up watching my mom make bread dressing but it was not until an adult learned the real secret is the fresh Turkey broth and sage that goes with it. I also learned the hard way, you can use too much sage. Be careful too much will make your dressing bitter. So forget that box stuffing, this recipe for homemade sage bread dressing will be made in my home and I hope it is in yours too.
- Bread crumbs from fresh or stale bread
- 2-Cups chopped celery
- 1 large onion
- 3 eggs
- 2 tbsp sage
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Salt and black pepper
- Olive oil
- 2 tbsp chicken bouillon
- 4-cups Turkey broth
- 13 x 9 baking dish
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. If you do not have a timer on your oven, 30 minutes will be sufficient.
- Use any inexpensive fresh or day old bread, and tear it apart and put in your 13 x 9 inch baking dish.
- Chop up two cups of celery and one large onion and add to the breadcrumbs.
- Add two tablespoons each, of sage and chicken bouillon. Add garlic, salt and pepper to taste.
- Put three eggs in the breadcrumbs and mix.
- Snitch four cups of juices from the turkey. Mix that all up and approximately 40 minutes before the turkey is done put your bread dressing in the oven.
- Bake 30-40 minutes.
- When it’s all done enjoy the turkey and sage bread dressing.
Tips: You can use croutons but they are usually more expensive than using inexpensive bread and doing the work yourself.
