I find it best to prepare the stuffing recipe the day ahead, that way you just need to stuff and go. There is nothing worse than having to prepare a bunch of food the day of turkey dinner. It helps to be prepared, and makes it easier on you as the host!

Homemade Stuffing Recipe

My family’s classic homemade stuffing recipe. Looking on how to make homemade turkey stuffing?  It’s a classic at Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas dinner, and Easter dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag of cubed bread crumbs
  • 1 tube frozen pork sausage, thawed
  • 1 box of stove top
  • 1 can of cream of celery soup
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1-2 stalks of celery, diced
  • 2-3 carrots, grated
  • 1 tbsp Poultry seasoning, I eyeball this. I usually add it until it smells just right.
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

You’ll need either one big bowl, or two medium bowls to mix this together.

  1. Add all of the ingredients together and mix well (I find it’s best to get in with your hands, it helps mix the pork up).
  2. Reserve the amount of stuffing that you will use to stuff the turkey.

For the rest:

Put in a baking dish and bake at 350F for one hour. At the half hour mark, take out and give a stir.

Note: the original recipe uses canned mushrooms, drained but since my husband despises them – I leave them out.

  1. I couldn’t find frozen pork sausage so I just bought the roll of regular pork sausage. Will that be OK u think.

    • I’m not sure, to be honest, I’ve never seen a roll of regular pork sausage. It should be fine!

    • Jimmy Dean Tennessee Pride or Bob Evans is in every supermarket I have ever shopped. It will be either frozen or refridgerated. Swagerety is another good rolled saucage that is carried by Sam’s Club and Piggly-Wiggly.

    • Thank you for sharing this! Yes, usually the kind I buy is in the freezer section.

  4. This sounds wonderful – perfect for Thanksgiving! We just started the Whisk It Wednesday link party and I thought you might be interested in sharing there too! Thanks, Carrie

  5. I think the stuffing is my favorite Thanksgiving dish. Pinning your recipe! Thank you for linking up with us at the #HomeMattersParty this week.

  6. We always make 2 dressings at Thanksgiving. The Yankee dressing listed above and Cornbread dressing for my wife’s side of the family. Either one is great but we triple the celery for both. My grandma said once you think you have plenty of celery, add more! We stopped making stuffing as it was hit or miss on whether it would get done and if it is packed to tight it slows down the roasting of the turkey.

  7.  I would like to try this recipe, but I don’t know what “cubed bread crumbs” are. I know what breadcrumbs are and I know what cubed bread is but what are cubed bread crumbs? Also, the recipe calls for a box of stovetop. I’m assuming that this is Stovetop Stuffing, but can you tell me which type of Stovetop Stuffing?  Thanks a million! I’m looking forward to trying this recipe. 

    • Hey Fran, cubed breadcrumbs are chunks of dried bread (in cubes). Kind of like croutons. The video will show it.

      Any box of Stovetop Stuffing works! I usually buy chicken for turkey (I know it’s weird, but it’s just what I do lol).

  8. Thank you for the information! I’m looking forward to trying this recipe.
