  • Tips

    • You can also use a 3-quart casserole for this recipe.
    • For crunchier stuffing, bake the stuffing uncovered.
    • For Cranberry & Pecan Stuffing, stir 1/2 cup each dried cranberries and chopped pecans into the stuffing mixture before baking.
    • For Sausage & Mushroom Stuffing, add 1 cup sliced mushrooms to the vegetables during cooking.  Stir 1/2 pound pork sausage, cooked and crumbled, into the stuffing mixture before baking.
    • Make Ahead: Prepare as directed but do not bake.  Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.  To bake, heat the oven to 350°F.  Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until hot.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 350°F.  Heat the butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat.  Add the celery and onion and cook for 5 minutes or until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 2

    Add the broth to the saucepan and heat to a boil.  Remove the saucepan from the heat.  Add the stuffing and mix lightly.  Spoon the stuffing mixture into a greased 9x13x2-inch baking dish.  Cover the baking dish.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 30 minutes or until the stuffing mixture is hot.
