  • 2 pounds of crusty country bread, cut into 1½” pieces
  • 6 tbsp of unsalted butter, divided, plus more for the dish
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 medium leeks, tough outer layer removed, and thinly slice into half-moons
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2½ cups of low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1½ cups of whole milk
  • 2 tbsp of mixed freshly chopped herbs, sage, rosemary, and/or thyme
  • A pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

How to Make Thanksgiving Stuffing:

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350°F, then spread the bread on 2 baking sheets evenly, and bake them for about 15 to 20 minutes or until crispy and the edges turn golden, make sure to toss halfway through the cooking time. While waiting for the bread to bake, place a medium skillet on a stove over medium heat, then add 3 tablespoons of butter, and let it melt before adding the onion and leeks. Cook them for about 7 minutes or until softened while stirring occasionally, then add the garlic, and continue to saute for another minute or until fragrant.


Step 2

Season them with salt and pepper, then give them a good stir, and let them cool slightly. In a medium-sized mixing bowl or large Pyrex measuring cup, add the eggs, milk, herbs, and red pepper flakes, then give them a good whisk, and generously season with salt and black pepper. Increase the temperature of the oven to 375°F, then grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with a thin layer of butter, and set it aside. In a very large bowl, add the toasted bread, then add the onion mixture and egg mixture, and give them a good toss to combine.

Step 3

Let it sit and soak the bread in the mixture for at least 10 minutes or up to 1 hour, then transfer the bread mixture to the prepared baking dish, and spread them evenly. Make sure all of the liquid is poured into the dish, then cut the remaining butter into small pieces, and place them all over the top. Cover it with aluminum foil, then bake it in the oven for about 20 minutes, uncover, and continue to bake for another 25 to 30 minutes or more until the top is golden brown. Serve warm and enjoy!
