Thanksgiving Comfort Food

Herb Stuffing 
Stuffing, my favorite part of a Thanksgiving meal.  There is something about my Mother's homemade stuffing....... I simply can't eat enough!

- 1 lb crusty italian or french bread (cut into 1/2 inch cubes - 10-12 cups)
-4 tbs butter (1/2 stick)
-2 onions
-1 tsp dried thyme leaves
-1/2 tsp ground black pepper
-2 large eggs
-2 celery stalked (diced)
-1/4 c minced parsley leaves
-1 tsp dried sage (rubbed btwn fingers)
-3/4 tsp salt
-2 c low-sodium chicken broth

-Spread bread crumbs in a single layer and let dry overnight (use 2 large pans)
-Preheat over to 400'F
-Bake bread 12-15 min.......... Reduce heat to 350'F
-Heat butter in large skillet over medium heat..... add onions & celery...... saute until soft
-In large bowl mix bread, vegetables and remaining ingredients
-Pour into a greased 3-Qt baking dish...... Cover with foil and bake until steamy (30 min)
-Remove foil and bake until crusty (10 min)

I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
