  • 426g / 15 ounces stuffing mix
  • 5 stalks of celery, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • Combine croutons, celery, salt, pepper, parsley, onion, and butter in a large bowl.
  • 2 ¼ cups milk
  • Add milk to mixture and stir to combine, pressing down on stuffing until milk is fully absorbed. Test stuffing by pressing a small portion together with your hand. If it forms a cohesive ball there's enough milk. If it does not form a ball, add additional milk in ¼ cup increments and stir to combine.
  • When stuffing can be formed in a ball, transfer to prepared baking dish. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake at 375°F until top of stuffing turns golden brown and sets, about 30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
