  • 3/4 cup margarine or butter To cut calories, I use 1/2 cup.
  • 2 cups celery chopped
  • 1 cup onion chopped
  • 9 cups bread cubes dry
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1-2 cups chicken broth Or 2 bouillon cubes dissolved in 2 cups of boiling water.


  • Melt margarine in a large pot over medium heat.
  • Cook celery and onion in margarine for 2-5 minutes (until softened).
  • Remove from heat and add bread cubes, salt, pepper and poultry seasoning.
  • Slowly add chicken broth and stir until you get a nice consistency. The dryer your bread crumbs, the more broth you will need.*
  • *If you are using this Homemade Bread Stuffing to stuff a turkey or chicken, do not use as much broth.
