Samis Cookbook: Thanksgiving Edition

Sami Haddad, Editor

Welcome to Sami’s Cookbook, this will become a regular part of The Record where people can come find some tasty and healthy recipes. However, I do not think health is on anyone’s mind around Thanksgiving so this stuffing recipe is not going to be healthy, but it sure will be tasty.


  • 1 pound white bread
  • 2.5 chopped yellow onions (about 2.5 cups)
  • 3 stalks of celery chopped (about 1.5 cups)
  • .5 cups chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2.5 cups chicken broth
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1.5 sticks unsalted butter
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Chop bread into 1 inch pieces and place on a baking sheet in the oven at 250°F. Bake for around 1 hour or until bread is dry. Remember to move the bread around occasionally.
  2. Melt the butter over medium-high heat and add in the onions and celery. Stir this mixture frequently until it begins to brown.
  3. Now add the butter mixture to a bowl with the bread and add the salt, pepper, and herbs. 
  4. Add in 1.25 cups of the chicken broth, toss this mixture like a salad, and let it cool.
  5. Combine 1.25 cups of the broth and your 2 eggs in a bowl (I suggest using a whisk but if worst comes to worst you can use a fork). Now fold this to the bread mixture and transfer to a greased baking dish.
  6. Cover the stuffing with foil and bake for about 40 mins at 350°F. 
  7. Then bake uncovered until the top is crisp (roughly 40 minutes).
  8. Enjoy!

Closing Thoughts

I urge anyone with time to try this recipe. In my opinion it is far and away the best stuffing recipe out there. And watch out for the next recipe, a healthier spicy fried chicken sandwich.
