- Poultry seasoning is a pre-mixed blend of sage, pepper, marjoram, rosemary and thyme. If you don’t have the premixed version, you can make a combination of the spices, mixing well, then measure out 1 teaspoon.
- This is the classic version but if you would like to experiment, there are many additions you can make to the basic recipe. Try adding ½ cup of one or more of the following, cut into small pieces: mushrooms, carrot, apples, cranberries, or nuts.

Answer below for your chance to win!
Cooking Time1 hr 15 min
Cooking MethodCasserole, Oven
Cooking Vessel Size9 x 13-inch casserole dish
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup finely chopped celery, including some of the leaves if available
- 1 cup finely chopped onion
- 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning (see note)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 5 eggs
- 1 (12-ounce) package herbed stuffing mix (about 8 cups)
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons butter or drippings (see note)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish with cooking spray.
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat and saute the celery, onion and spices until the vegetables are soft, about 8 minutes.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs, then add the sauted vegetables and stir in the stuffing mix and broth until completely moistened. Pour mixture into the prepared casserole and bake for 1 hour until puffy and golden brown, but the center is completely cooked. (Test with a toothpick or knife in the center it should come out clean with no liquid attached.)
Optional: About 15 minutes before stuffing is completely done baking, chop 2 tablespoons butter into small bits and drop it over the surface or, if you have it available, spoon 2 tablespoons of drippings from a roasting chicken or turkey over the top and finish baking.
