Stuffing

This is kind of a framework for making stuffing. Almost everyone has different herbs and additives they like. Feel free to change the seasonings with such things as thyme, and basil. You can also add other things like chestnuts or other nuts, mushrooms, chopped turkey giblets, etc. if this is something you would normally do. The longer you let the bread cubes dry out before making the stuffing, the more broth you will need. Many recipes also call for melted butter or margarine, or butter pats on top during baking, but I've left these out in the interest of reduced fat. This mixture can of course also be used for stuffing the bird.

8 c Stuffing Bread,Cubed Or Crumbled
2 c Low Sodium Chicken Or Turkey Broth
1 c Onion,Chopped
1/2 c Celery,Chopped
2 t Tarragon
1 t Sage
1 t Poultry Seasoning
1 1/2 t Black Pepper

Combine all ingredients and toss lightly. Place in a greased 9x13 baking dish. Bake at 350 until heated through, about 30 minutes.
