Do you need a tried-and-true turkey stuffing recipe to complete your holiday dinner? Here's a traditional Amish favorite you can't miss!

We've been talking a lot about cooking a perfect turkey lately. While the turkey is the centerpiece of a memorable Thanksgiving dinner, there are other essential components that go into crafting a holiday feast that your guests won't forget. 

Next to the turkey itself, a delicious turkey stuffing is probably the most important part of your meal. In this post we'll show you how to make a turkey stuffing that will not disappoint! 


  • 1 gallon bread cubes
  • 1-1/4 sticks butter
  • 1/4 cup lard
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 tablespoon salt
  • Finely ground black pepper (approximately 1 teaspoon)
  • 3 cups celery (ground in food processor)

Cooking Instructions:

  1. In a saucepan, brown the butter and add the lard. Mix the two until they are fully melted.
  2. Remove the mixture from the heat, and stir one-half of it into the bread cubes and set them aside.
  3. Beat the eggs until fluffy and add the salt and pepper. Pour the eggs over the bread cubes.
  4. Move the saucepan back to the heat and add the celery to the remaining butter and lard. Stir the celery until it's heated thoroughly.
  5. Let the celery mixture cool and combine it with the bread mixture, stirring it well.
  6. Cook the stuffing at 350 degrees F in an uncovered baking dish for 30–45 minutes, stirring it occasionally.

This recipe can also be stuffed in a 12–14 pound turkey and cooked with the turkey.
