Thanksgiving Herb Stuffing

Perfect blend of herbs, crusty bread and custard-y in the middle!

  • 70 minutes
  • Serves 6
  • Easy




My favorite holiday side dishes are potato au gratin, roasted vegetables and THIS herb stuffing!

This girl (me) is a huge fan of Thanksgiving especially because I like ‘buffet’ style eating as I love having 5+ dishes on one giant plate!

Thanksgiving really isn’t complete without the perfect side dishes and a baked stuffing.

Whether you prefer yours stuffed inside the bird or baked in its own dish, this recipe is all around amazing! Tons of herbs, some sweetness from the apple and dried cranberries and that crusty top!

You can also add mushrooms to this, or other diced vegetables.



Toast Breadcubes

It's always best to use 'day old bread' but since very dry bread absorbs the most liquid.

Slice the bread into cubes and toast it in the oven for 10-15 minutes at 375°F on a baking sheet.


Sauté The Vegetables

Chop the onion, leek, celery and green apple and add it to a large skillet with about 1 Tablespoon of olive oil.

Sauté on medium heat for 5-7 minutes or until translucent.


Combine All of the Ingredients

Get a large bowl and add the toasted bread cubes, sautéed vegetables and apple, the chopped herbs, cranberries and chicken or vegetable broth and mix with a spoon.

Season with 1 teaspoon of kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper, mix again and taste. Adjust seasoning if needed.

Next, crack the 2 eggs into a separate, small bowl, whisk then pour into the big bowl.

Mix one last time then transfer the mixture to a baking dish and press it down to make an even layer.



Bake the stuffing (uncovered) at 375°F for 35-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and slightly crusty.

Allow to cool for 5-7 minutes before serving.
