  • 1
    Melt butter in 4-quart Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook celery and onion in butter 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Remove Dutch oven from the heat.
  • 2
    Gently toss celery mixture and remaining ingredients, using spoon, until bread cubes are evenly coated.
  • 3
    Use to stuff one 10- to 12-pound turkey. Or to bake stuffing separately, grease 3-quart casserole or rectangular baking dish, 13x9x2 inches. Place stuffing in casserole or baking dish. Cover with lid or aluminum foil and bake at 325°F for 30 minutes; uncover and bake 15 minutes longer.

Expert Tips

  • For 6 grams of fat and 130 calories per serving, decrease the butter to 1/4 cup. Heat butter and 1/2 cup chicken broth to boiling in Dutch oven over medium-high heat, and cook celery and onion in the broth mixture.
  • Just about any kind of bread makes great stuffing! Try whole-grain, sourdough, rye, herb or corn bread. You can even mix and match bread varieties if you’d like.
