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!

How to Make Stuffing Balls / Bread Stuffing

Step-by-Step

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

    Pull apart bread into bite sized pieces. Add the salt, pepper, parsley and poultry seasoning. I use my hands to mix well throughout.
  3. Now, chop the onion and celery. In a skillet or saucepan; saute the vegetables just till tender in butter or oil, I used butter, about 3 tablespoons.
  4. Add the vegetables to the bread, along with the soups and broth. Mix well; again I use my hands.

    Next, whisk the eggs lightly and add to the bread. Melt the butter in a small saucepan, add to the bread; Mix well.
  5. The 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.
  6. Now, 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.
  7. You 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..
  8. Enjoy!..these really do have a wonderful, savory flavor..
