Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

This is a recipe I clipped from a local newspaper about 30 years ago.  It is a family favorite at holiday time.

1 pound mushrooms, sliced thin

1 1/2 cups chopped celery with leaves

1 large onion, chopped fine

1 cup butter or margarine

7 cups soft bread cubes

2 teaspoons of poultry seasoning

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

In large skillet (I use cast iron), saute mushrooms, celery and onion in butter until mushrooms are tender. Toss with bread cubes, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Makes about 9 cups stuffing, enough for 10-12 pound turkey. Stuffing can be baked in greased covered baking dish or casserole in 325 degree oven for 45-60 minutes or until heated through. For drier, crispier stuffing, uncover the last 15 minutes.

Jennifer - thank you! I've never been "published" before - lol.  I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as we do! Happy Turkey Day!

This sounds delicious--I've got plenty of celery leaves so I'm glad to see a recipe include them--and thanks for sharing a stuffing recipe using poultry seasoning.  I've got an idea for a post-Thanksgiving rolled pizza with "stuffing flavor" dough, and I was thinking about poultry seasoning in the pizza dough to give it some stuffing flavor.  Appreciate it!
