Savory Stuffing Balls

Martha Price


I like stuffing, but it is not something I would ordinarily make except at holiday meals. However, a couple of weeks ago I went to dinner at a local restaurant, and, tired of mashed potatoes, I ordered stuffing balls with my roast chicken dinner. I really liked them, so I have been experimenting with my own version.
This is a combination that I like, - I hope you do, too.

How to Make Savory Stuffing Balls


  • 1Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • 2Saute onions in butter in large skillet over medium heat for 10 minutes. Stir in celery, parsley, sage, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, over medium heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • 3Add bread cubes to onion mixture; toss thoroughly to coat. Mix together the egg and 3/4 cup of the broth; add to stuffing to moisten. If stuffing is too dry to stick together add a small additional amount of broth, but do not over moisten.
  • 4Shape stuffing into 24 small balls (about 1 and 1/2" diameter). If you prefer, you can make the balls a little larger.
    Place the balls in one layer on a greased baking sheet.
  • 5Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Pour remaining broth over the balls (use a little more broth to just moisten balls if needed). Bake, uncovered, an additional 15 minutes, or until balls are the dry/moist level you desire.
