Bread & Butter Holiday Stuffing

Posted by Chef Don King, Culinary Market Specialist


Homemade stuffing is a staple side dish for every Thanksgiving table! This is a traditional recipe made with dried bread cubes mixed with onions and celery sautéed in plenty of butter then mixed with sweet Bread & Butter Pickles, herbs and broth (and more butter) and baked until golden and delicious!


12 cups stale white bread – cut into 1 inch cubes (approx. 1 pound 4 oz. loaf of bread)

3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter divided

1 large yellow or white onion, chopped

2 cups celery, chopped stalks and leaves!

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon poultry seasoning

1/2 teaspoon marjoram

3/4 cup J&A Bread & Butter Pickles, minced

1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped curly or Italian will work

2 eggs

1 cup chicken broth or stock

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prep a 9x9 baking dish by generously greasing with butter or oil. (If you are doubling the recipe, use a 9x13 or 10x15 baking dish.)

  2. In a large sauté pan over medium heat, melt 3/4 cup butter. Add the onions and celery and sauté until they are completely softened. This will take about 20 minutes.

  3. Remove from heat and add the salt, pepper, poultry seasoning, marjoram, minced J&A Bread & Butter Pickles and parsley to the onions.

  4. In a small bowl whisk together the eggs and broth.

  5. Add the bread cubes to a large bowl, pour the onions/herb mixture over the bread and stir to combine. Pour the egg mixture over the bread cubes and stir until the liquid is absorbed.

  6. Pour the stuffing mixture into the buttered baking dish. Cube the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and dot the top of the stuffing.

  7. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 15 minutes. For an extra crispy top, turn the broiler on for a minute or two!
