SANDRA'S HOMEMADE BASIC MOIST DRESSING (or stuffing if inside bird)

This my most flavorful basic dressing
that I tend to change up depending upon
what the main course is that I'm serving it with, i.e.,
with pork, I'll add chopped apples and dried cranberries, and so on...
Servings: (8 to 10)
Prep: 15 Mins. |

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 medium onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
8 crimini mushrooms, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon rosemary
1 teaspoon sage
1 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon savory
2 tablespoons dried parsley
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
8 cups stale whole-wheat bread, broken into one-inch pieces
3 to 4 cups poultry stock (depending on how moist you like your dressing)
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Melt butter in large skillet and add all ingredients, except the bread and stock. Cook over medium heat until onions are soft. Pour into a large mixing bowl. Add the bread and stock and mix well using clean hands, or if you prefer a large spoon. Let dressing cool.

Spray a 13”x9” baking dish. Transfer stuffing to prepared dish. Cover with foil that has been sprayed on the underside, and bake until heated through, about 45 minutes. Uncover and bake until top is golden brown, about 15 minutes longer. - Enjoy!


Tip:  I prefer my dressing more moist, so I leave the baking dish covered for the entire hour, your choice ;)
