Uncle Carl’s Thanksgiving Stuffing Recipe



Homemade Breadcrumbs for Stuffing

16 Cups Dry Bread Cubes, homemade or store-bought (3 large loaves of bread for homemade)

Ingredients for Stuffing

½ Cup Butter

2 Cups Onion, ½” diced

2 Cups Celery, ½” diced

3 tsp Canuck Clucker Seasoning

2 TBS Grizzly Herb Rub

½ tsp Lemon Pepper

2 Large Eggs

1 ½3 Cups Chicken Stock (The amount of chicken stock needed will depend on how dense and moist your bread it. You want your stuffing to be moist but no standing broth before it bakes.)

1 TBS Parsley, fresh chopped for garnish


How to Make Homemade Breadcrumbs for Stuffing

  1. Preheat oven to 250˚F
  2. Using a serrated bread knife, cut the bread into cubes, about ½” to ¾” cubed pieces, and lay them on a baking sheet in a single layer.
  3. Bake in a 250˚F oven for about an hour, tossing them a few times to make sure they dry all the way through.
  4. Remove from the oven and set aside while you make the rest of the stuffing. If you make these ahead of time, let them cool completely then transfer to an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 1 week.

How to Make Stuffing

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F
  2. In a large pot over medium heat, add butter and melt. Add onion and celery and cook, stirring frequently, until the celery and onions are tender and translucent ~ about 8 minutes.
  3. Add all of the seasonings to 1 ½” cups of the chicken broth and eggs and whisk until combined.
  4. Put the dry cubed bread into a large bowl and pour the chicken broth and celery mixture over the top of the bread. Gently fold the ingredients together – the stuffing should be moist but there should be no standing liquid. If it seems a little dry, add up to ½ cup of the additional chicken broth.
  5. Spray a 9″ x 13″ baking dish with non-stick cooking spray, then spread the stuffing evenly into the prepared dish.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-60 minutes, stirring gently every 15-20 minutes. The top should be lightly golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and top with chopped fresh parsley before serving immediately. Enjoy!
