(THE BEST) HOMEMADE THANKSGIVING STUFFING!

Hey! Remember how I said I'd post my (mom's) Thanksgiving stuffing recipe? And then forgot? And now it's like... Thanksgiving week? Go me!
The bad news? You don't get to see pictures of anything but the stuffing... it looks a little lonesome! Just picture it next to a Thanksgiving meal extravaganza.
The good news? It's not too late to run and grab these ingredients and whip some up- actually, you probably have most/all of this already on hand! Hooray! 
More good news? I whipped this up this morning... and my house smells like heaven. Happy Thanksgiving!

Easy Thanksgiving Stuffing
1 loaf of white bread
4 stalks of celery
1 onion
1 can of chicken broth (you most likely won't use the entire can)
1/2 stick butter
1 tbsp. sage
Salt & pepper

Break the bread- this is the best part! Hello, childhood! Seriously, the memories of doing this as a child. Don't use a knife- rip it up by hand. It's therapeutic! Leave the bread on a cookie sheet(s) overnight to dry out. 

Melt butter in a sauce pan. Add chopped celery and onions. Cook 10 minutes until soft (don't brown). Add salt, pepper, and sage (fresh or dry) to taste. Alternate adding bread and 1/4 can of broth until the mixture is damp... not too wet, not too dry. Try it! Test it out to see how the spices are. Adjust as necessary. Let this sit as long as you can- 15 minutes... 4 hours... It will help the flavors sink in:)

Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 30 - 45 minutes (I use an 8x8 pan). Remove the foil for the last 10 minutes of baking.

(*Note- this serves about 6... in most all cases I double the batch for a family get together!
*Note #2- I usually use dry sage, but apparently every store within 5 miles has run out of sage... so I used fresh this time! It was delish!)
