You can’t cook? Here is a side dish you can still bring to the table: Stuffing

I don’t know about you but wow…. I LOVE stuffing! I do not have it at my family Thanksgiving but when I would attend American thanksgiving dinners it was a staple (still is). 


  • 2 pounds of baguettes (or any bread)
  • 8 tbsp. butter (more for the baking dish)
  • 1 large diced onion
  • 4 sliced stalks celery (small sizes)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup of freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp. freshly chopped sage, minced
  • 1 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves, minced
  • 1/2 tbsp. freshly chopped rosemary
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups of chicken (or vegetable) broth
  • 2 large beaten eggs



  1. The day before you make the stuffing: Tear or slice bread into 1/4″ cubes and leave out overnight to dry out. ( Place bread on baking sheets and bake at 210º for 19 minutes.)
  2. When you’re going to make the stuffing:
  • ​Preheat the oven to 350º and butter a large baking dish.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter.
  • Add onion and celery and cook until soft and fragrant, 7 minutes.
  • Stir in garlic, parsley, sage, thyme, and rosemary and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more.
  • Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Place bread in a large bowl and add skillet mixture.
  • Toss to combine. 
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together chicken broth and beaten eggs and pour over the bread mixture.
  • Season generously with salt and pepper and toss until completely coated.
  • Transfer mixture to a prepared baking dish and cover with foil.
  • Bake until cooked through, 45 minutes, then remove foil and cook until bread is golden, 17 to 20 minutes more.
