These stuffing balls are always in demand at any big social gatherings that my immediate family has. I can always count on being asked to make these. And could make them in my sleep..LOL

They aren't just for Thanksgiving in my family.

I was requested by my niece to bring a crock pot full to her graduation party over the summer....they are delicious..

Normally I would use 10 loaves of bread, yes 10, and is never any left, when making for Thanksgiving. Today I am only using 3 loaves for a small gathering at Church..I hope you will try them. They are fattening, but so good!

    1Preheat oven to 325 degree

    Gather ingredients.

    You can pull the bread apart the day before using, and let dry. Sometimes I do, and sometimes I don't.
    It really makes no difference.

    2In an extra large bowl, or I use a canner or turkey roasting pan; so to have enough room to mix.

    5The bread should now have the texture when squeezed together of a meatball. If it is not staying together, I have added more broth , soup, or another egg or two.

    Now, make the stuffing balls to the size of your liking. Mine are about the size of the bottom of a small soup can in diameter.

    6Now, place in a greased roasting pan, I added a little chicken broth to the pan also. Bake 40 - 50 minutes; unless you are going to finish in a crock pot with gravy. If so, just cook long enough so that the egg in them cooks enough to hold them together; about 25 to 30 minutes.

    7You can serve them as is or w/ gravy.

    I placed mine into my 8 quart crock pot; covered with gravy; cooked on low for about 3 hours. I then turned down to warm; till time to serve..They suck up a lot of the gravy, so don't plan on using that gravy for mashed taters..
  • Enjoy!..these really do have a wonderful, savory flavor..
