This is the traditional stuffing that I grew up on. For people throughout the country with New England roots, stuffing made with Bell’s Seasoning is the classic Thanksgiving dish. Bell’s Seasoning, one of the oldest American spice mixes, was created by William G. Bell of Newton, Massachusetts, in 1867. The earthy blend of rosemary, oregano, sage, ginger, marjoram, thyme, and pepper is an old family recipe that remains unchanged to this day.

  • 3/4 Cup Minced Onion
  • 3/4 Cup Chopped Celery
  • 8 Tablespoons Butter
  • 16 Slices White Bread (Cubed & Left Overnight On Baking Sheet To Stale)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Poultry Broth
  • 1 Tablespoon Bell’s Seasoning
  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
  1. In small-size sauté pan, add butter over a medium-high heat. Add onions and celery and sauté 8 minutes until softened and golden.
