Grandma Ruths Stuffing Recipe

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3 stalks celery, diced
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 (20 ounce) loaf French or Italian bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 (16 ounce) package herb-seasoned stuffing mix
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2 (14 ounce) cans chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons rubbed sage
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute the mushrooms, celery, and onions until softened.
  2. Dampen the fresh bread cubes (not the stuffing mix), then squeeze out any excess water.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the mushroom mixture, bread cubes, stuffing mix, eggs, and 1 can chicken broth. Season with sage, thyme, garlic powder, salt, and pepper, and mix well. The stuffing should have a rather paste-like consistency. Mix in additional chicken broth as necessary.
  4. Loosely pack stuffing inside turkey cavity before roasting.
