Celery stuffing

    40 min

    A moist and flavourful stuffing for your roast turkey, which is really similar to the classic sage and onion, but with just a little more flavour thanks to the abundance of celery. Enjoy stuffed inside your turkey or simply bake in a baking dish on its own.

    • 115g butter

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Melt butter in saucepan. Cook and stir onion in melted butter until soft, but not brown. Add celery and stir well. Add 500ml of the chicken stock. Bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
    2. Place bread cubes into large mixing bowl. Add eggs, salt, pepper, sage, thyme and marjoram. Add onion-celery mixture; combine thoroughly. If still too dry, add more chicken stock.
    3. Stuff into the cavity of a 4 to 7kg turkey and roast turkey according to recipe. Or place stuffing in a buttered baking dish, and bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 45 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned. (More stock may be needed for this method to keep it from drying out.)

    Instructions were not really clear for a first timer. Bouillon mixture I assumed was the chicken broth. Marjoram was not listed but directions made it sound like a necessity when you have only a printed copy instead of online view where it said marjoram can be substituted so it was not known.  -  29 Nov 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Exactly what I was looking for! Tastes just like what Grandma makes except that this is an actual recipe, whereas Grandma adds a "little of this and a pinch of that" I'll be making this again!  -  29 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe for homemade stuffing! I cut this back to 8 servings and used 1 egg and eyeballed the herbs adding a bit of marjoram. This was a nice alternative to mashed potoates for a change!  -  26 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
