servings

1/4
cup butter or margarine
1
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
2
medium stalks celery, chopped (1 cup)
2
medium carrots, chopped (1 cup)
8
cups dry bread cubes (about 11 slices bread)
2
tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley, if desired
2
tablespoons poultry seasoning or dried sage leaves
1
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
About 1/2 cup Progresso® chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
  1. In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery and carrots; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender.
  2. In large bowl, mix bread cubes, parsley, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Add broth and butter-onion mixture, stirring until desired moistness (stuffing will become a little more moist during roasting because it will absorb juices from turkey).
  3. Use to stuff 1 (14- to 18-lb) turkey. After stuffing turkey, place any remaining stuffing in 1- or 2-quart casserole that has been sprayed with cooking spray; cover and refrigerate. Bake stuffing in casserole with turkey for last 35 to 40 minutes of roasting time or until thoroughly heated.

Substitution
Day-old soft bread cubes can be substituted for the dry bread cubes. Decrease the broth to about 1/4 cup.
Did You Know?
Poultry seasoning is a blend of herbs and spices such as thyme, sage, marjoram, rosemary, black pepper and nutmeg. Each of these seasonings goes well with poultry; mixed together, the combination provides a subtle, complex flavor the individual seasonings do not have on their own.
