I added 1/2 lb browned sausage, and 2 diced McIntosh apples to this batch.
1 cup onion, finely diced
1 cup celery, finely diced
6 Tbsp butter
12 cups dried bread in cubes
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
1/2 tsp dried sage
1/2 cup minced fresh thyme, if using dried reduce to 1/8 cup
1/2 cup minced fresh marjoram, if using dried reduce to 1/8 cup
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups chicken stock
Sauté onion and celery in butter for 7 to 8 minutes over medium heat in a skillet until soft and lightly browned
In large bowl, combine all ingredients until saturated.
If using as stuffing, pour half of mixture into a baking dish and use the rest to stuff the turkey after microwaving for 6-8 minutes. Once the mixture is hot, stuff the turkey.
Otherwise, pour all the mixture into a baking dish. Tent foil over the dish and bake in a 400 F oven for 25 minutes remove foil halfway through.
