  • 16 slices soft bread cut into cubes, (I like to use half whole wheat bread and half white)
  • ½ cup butter (see note)
  • 1 cup chopped celery (about 4 ribs)
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2-3 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning blend to taste
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • optional add-ins: dried cranberries, chopped pecans, fresh herbs like thyme or oregano


  • Add butter, celery, and onion to a large skillet and saute over medium-high heat until butter is completely melted and vegetables are very tender.
  • Stir in bread cubes and sprinkle with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Continue to stir over medium-low heat until bread is moistened and hot throughout (3-4 minutes).
  • Taste, add salt and pepper to taste if needed.
  • Stir in any optional add-ins if desired. Use to stuff a 10-12 pound turkey or cover and keep warm until ready to serve as-is.


If you like your stuffing to be a little more moist, you can add another 3-4 tablespoons of butter and/or 1/4 cup chicken or vegetable stock.
