Amish Turkey Stuffing
Deliciously crispy on the outside and soft and moist on the inside, we love this stuffing as a Thanksgiving main dish or as a way to use up leftover turkey!
- 10 cups dried bread cubes (see Notes below for how to make your own)
- 3/4 cup celery, finely chopped
- 1 Tbsp. parsley flakes
- 3/4 cup butter, melted
- 2 1/2 cups turkey or chicken broth
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/2 tsp. onion powder
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 cups turkey, chopped
Combine dried bread cubes, celery and parsley flakes in large bowl.
Melt butter; and add broth, salt, pepper, onion powder and egg. Mix well.
Pour over bread mixture and combine.
Add turkey and mix well.
Put into a greased casserole dish (9 x 13 or 3 ½ qt.)
Bake at 350° for 1 hour.
HOMEMADE DRIED BREAD CUBES:
To make the cubes, cut a slice of bread into strips about ¾ in. wide. Cut each strip, to create cubes. Once you have enough cubes cut, place them in a single layer onto a shallow baking sheet (cookie sheets with side work well). Bake at 375°, until cubes are dry, usually about 10 minutes. You can use the cubes immediately.
- This dish freezes really well! Just mix it up and freeze it unbaked. When you are ready to use it, allow it to thaw completely and then bake as directed.
