Stuffing for Turkey or Chicken, Pennsylvania Dutch Style, My Moms Recipe!

This is my Moms' original PA Dutch Stuffing recipe ! So easy & so good it is not a holiday without it ! We always stuff our bird but for those who do not want the extra fuss or are worried about the safety of stuffing a turkey or chicken and not dealing with possible food born illness I am blogging this stuffing in a 9x13 pan. We have never had anyone get sick from eating a dinner with the stuffing already in the bird so we stuff them. We always wait until right before the bird goes in the oven to stuff so go ahead and stuff that turkey and chicken with this recipe just do it right before you roast your poultry!

 I just tried the following recipe in the crock-pot for the first time , IT WAS DELICIOUS!  To make it in the crock-pot just spray the crock with cooking spray , or butter the crock. Pile in the stuffing loosely . Cook on low 4 to 4 & 1/2 hours. Mine was nice & brown on the sides & top but light & fluffy inside . It was if I had roasted it in the bird ! CAREFULLY watch your crock-pot as many vary on cooking times !

1 Loaf of plain white bread cut into cubes to make 8 Cups. Precut bread cubes are fine I just like to do it myself!
1 Large Onion Chopped
3 Ribs of Celery Chopped
6 Eggs
1/2 Cup Milk
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 TBS Parsley
1 TSP Ground Sage
1 TSP Savory ( if you can find it) if not just use poultry seasoning & leave out the sage
1 TSP Onion Powder
IF using this for chicken I add 1 TSP Garlic Powder leave out if making Turkey
3/4 of a Stick of Butter ( may use margarine but why when there is butter)
In large glass bowl put onion, celery and butter, cover and microwave on high for 3 minutes. Stir and cover and cook another 3 minutes. Meanwhile cut up bread into cubes and dump into a large mixing bowl. Add the celery, onion & butter mixture and stir well mixing it through the bread coating all . Break eggs into bread mixture and stir well getting it through all the bread. Now stir in seasonings and add milk. Stir again to mix well !                                                                     
Spray your 9x13 pan with baking spray or butter bottom and sides of pan. Spoon stuffing mixture into pan and bake at 350 degrees for one hour ! Or stuff in your bird and roast according to directions on your poultry packaging !   As you can see from the picture above this is a moist stuffing with a crispy crust & that is how we LOVE it ! Pour some gravy on this serving and call it done !                                    



  1. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for posting these awesome Pennsylvania Dutch recipes! My mother passed away when I was 22 and I never learned how to make them. I have been trying to figure out this stuffing recipe for 25 years! I made it tonight and it was almost exactly like my mom's. I grew up in York, PA and my family made a lot of the recipes you have posted. I can't wait to make them all! I so appreciate you Judy! You are awesome!!!
