I have made this stuffing many times for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner - it is a favorite!
1/2 cup margarine or butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup finely chopped celery
3/4 cup finely shredded carrot
3/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning or ground sage
3/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
6 cups dry bread cubes and crumb mixture
1 chicken oxo cube, can substitute the oxo chicken gravy mix
1 cup hot water
Saute together the margarine or butter, onion, celery and carrot until the vegetables are mostly cooked. Add the spices, oxo and hot water. Continue cooking ( uncovered ) over medium heat until the liquid is almost evaporated. Now add the bread cubes and stir with fork to fluff nicely. Add a little water if needed. Cover and keep warm till serving time - an excellent homemade stuffing.
An idea - My friend adds frozen cranberries to her stuffing. It is something I want to try sometime as I think it would be delicious. She puts her stuffing inside the turkey - cooks it that way. Also an excellent idea.
