  1. Melt unsalted butter in a small saucepan at low heat. Crumble bread into breadcrumbs or use a food processor (this is the one I have). 

  2. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Thoroughly stir in onion, garlic, celery. Pour in melted butter and blend to completely distribute butter throughout.

  3. You may use this mixture either as stuffing (inside the turkey) or as dressing (in a pan cooked separately).

  4. Stuffing: Firmly pack handfuls of the mixture into turkey cavity and enclose and cook inside turkey until turkey is done. While turkey is resting after roasting, remove stuffing from cavity and place on serving dish.

  5. Dressing: Fill baking dish, casserole, or bread pan with the mixture and press down firmly with hands to create an inch or two of a gap between the top of the dressing and top of the bread pan. Bake in the oven with or without turkey for 60 minutes (preferably at 325 F/160 C) and remove. It should be golden brown on top and moist but not wet inside.

  6. Serve immediately. Once cooled, store in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Reheat as desired for delicious leftovers.
