Christmas is almost here, and that generally means two things: gift giving and great food. One of the most popular side dishes on Christmas Day is stuffing, although not everybody knows how to make it. Recipes range from easy to hard. To help complete the perfect Christmas feast, here's a simple recipe with five easy steps provided by the Food Network and Fine Cooking. Check it out:


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 stick of salted butter
  • 2 cups diced celery
  • 2 cups diced onions
  • 3 cups chicken broth, turkey broth or water
  • 16 cups stale white bread, cubed


1. Set a stove-top burner at medium heat and melt the butter in a large skillet. Add the celery and onions and cook until the onions are translucent, which should take about five minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste, then pour the broth (or water) into the skillet. Bring it to a simmer.

2. Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Add the cubed stale white bread to the mixture.

3. By now, the vegetable-broth mixture should be ready. Remove it from the heat and combine in the bowl with the egg-bread mixture.

4. Once that is done, place the mixture, with all the ingredients, into a greased baking dish. Make sure to cover the dish with either its lid or aluminum foil. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

5. When this time is up, remove the lid or foil and cook for another 30 minutes. Anybody who is cooking a Christmas turkey can then place the stuffing inside the bird.
