side dish three

what is thanksgiving without stuffing?! this is the recipe my family has used at every thanksgiving, and my dad won't have it any other way. i don't blame him either it's delicious!

strain family stuffing for 6

1 loaf white bread (i'm going to try an italian crusty loaf this year, but we usually use plain ol' white bread)
3/4 c. butter (1.5 sticks)
1 chopped onion
4 stalks chopped celery
2 tsp. poultry seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
1 c. chicken broth

Tip: when chopping the veggies and bread cubes make them equal sizes. you don't want huge chunks of celery with small chunks of bread. that's just annoying and someone could choke out of sheer surprise that there were huge celery chunks in their stuffing. i made that up... 

How To:

Let the bread air dry for 2hrs or you can toast both sides lightly under the broiler. 
Cut into cubes.
In a large saucepan melt butter, add onion, celery, and seasonings. cook until soft
Stir in bread cubes and chicken broth. 

Make the day before and chill. then the day of stuff the turkey with it or bake in a dish at 350 for 30-40 min.
