go-to recipe for sure. I used a day old loaf of Trader Joes Pugliese bread, cutting it into bread cubes (leaving the crust on) and then toasting the bread cubes in a slow oven until they were fairly dry. Added the turkey giblets too, and turkey stock from cooking the giblets. Really good bread stuffing. Thanks for another keeper, Charlie.
Grandma's Bread Stuffing
1 1/2 cups diced celery
1 cup coarsely chopped onions
3/4 cup butter
8 cups day old bread cubes
2/3 cup turkey broth, hot, or low-salt chicken broth
2 eggs, beaten slightly
1 tsp salt
1-1/2 tsp sage
1-1/2 tsp thyme
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup chopped cooked giblets, optional
Saute celery and onion in butter until tender. While vegetables are cooking, turn bread cubes into large bowl, moisten with hot liquid, and cover bowl. When vegetables are tender, add to bread. Stir in eggs and add seasonings, tossing lightly. Add cooked giblets from turkey. Stuffing may be baked separately in a casserole in mod. oven (375 deg.) for 25 to 30 min.

Charlie's note: This is a basic bread stuffing that was our standard for years.
