  • 1/4 cup Butter Unsalted
  • 3/4 cup Onion Finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Garlic Finely minced
  • 2 stalks Celery Chopped
  • 1/4 cup Red peppers Finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Parsley Dried
  • 1/2 tsp Sage Dried
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano Dried
  • 1/2 tsp Marjoram Dried
  • 1/2 tsp Thyme
  • Salt To taste
  • Pepper To taste
  • 1 1/2 cup Broth Chicken or vegetable, Low sodium, Adjust based on your preference
  • 4 cups Unseasoned dried bread cubes Or plain croutons


  1. In a large nonstick pot, add butter, onion, garlic, celery, red peppers and cook on medium high heat  until vegetables are softened and onion becomes translucent. This takes about 5-6 minutes. 

  2. Add dried parsley, sage, oregano, marjoram, thyme, salt, pepper, broth. Mix and bring to a boil.

  3. Mix in the croutons or bread cubes to this seasoned liquid.

  4. Remove from heat. Cover and let the stuffing sit for 5 minutes so that the bread absorbs all the liquid. 

  5. If you prefer a softer stuffing, add more broth (1/4 cup at a time) and let it sit again for 5 minutes.

  6. My mom likes to use a fork fluff the mixture, prior to serving but I like the whole bread cubes and don't do this. It's a personal preference. Enjoy!
