This is my favorite comfort food. My children refuse to eat my mac and cheese because it doesn’t come from a blue box, but this, we all agree they will eat. It is warm and homey and makes a ton. I like to choose a day when the weather is totally terrible outside anyway and fill the house with the smell of baking chicken. The only thing this recipe takes is time to make. Preparation is straightforward enough. Be careful when adding the broth to the flour/butter mix because it will steam like crazy. I’ve given myself some nasty steam burns this way. Otherwise, it’s easy to make. I serve mine over either hot biscuits or mashed potatoes. Then I freeze whatever’s left for the next day when I just want something warm and hot and bubbling.

Easy White Bread Stuffing

Easy White Bread Stuffing

Serves: 4-6

Time: 50 mins

Reheats: Yes

Kid Friendly Tasks: Bread Shredder

This is the taste of my Thanksgiving. One recipe’s worth fills a small bird almost entirely, although it’s just as good cooked as a side dish like you’re supposed to nowadays. I make this most often around the holidays, but every so often, when I have bread to use up for one reason or another I make a quick recipe of this stuffing. It is, like most stuffings really, nutritionally trash seeing as it’s basically white bread that has been dipped in butter. Don’t let that stop you. Ask yourself, is Stouffer’s better (nutritionally I mean, taste wise there is no comparison)? This is just as easy to make, but without all that highly questionable MSG added to the mix.
