This moist and mellow recipe came from my mother-in-law to my husband from her family.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 1 large onion, minced
  • 2 tablespoons dried summer savory
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 6 slices bread, cut into cubes
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two, then mash.
  2. 2 Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook the celery and onion in the butter until the onion has turned translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Fold into the mashed potatoes along with the savory, and allow to cool until just warm.
  3. 3 Place the cooled mashed potatoes into a large bowl, and stir in the beaten egg. Gently fold in cubed bread, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  4. 4 Use as a stuffing for turkey, or bake in buttered loaf pans at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 40 minutes.

  1. No I didn't try this recipe, but this is VERY similar to the recipe my grandmother makes! I finally found exact measurements thank you! Only thing my grandmother does different is no onion and she boils her celery to use the celery water in the stuffing, less dry.
  2. I am from New Brunswick and this is exactly like my grandmother's...delish!
  3. This has a really great flavor just a bit dry. Everyone liked it but as the minutes went by it got more and more dry. But I do like it so much I want to experiment with a few things like cream of celery to get it just right for our tastes. Thank you for - Read more ...
  4. it's the best
  5. I used this to stuff a chicken. I liked it but I think it could have used a little more flavour.
  6. Just what I was looking for! I am from Nova Scotia Canada but now live in Australia. It was hard to get summer savory but ordered savory on the internet. The only thing I did differently was omitt the celery and add some sugar so it would be as close as possible to my mums - Read more ...
  7. My family and I LOVED this stuffing - so homestyle and so easy to prepare! Thanks!
  8. This was exactly what you'd expect it to be. I didn't have dried summer savory so I used thyme w/ a dash of sage. I made it as a side dish and it taste good but a little dry so next time I'll make it w/ a saucy dish to accompany it.
  9. This is JUST the recipe I was looking for! I unintentionally added more Summer Savory than the recipe called for, but it didn't ruin the taste at all, which I was worried that it would. I didn't add celery, not a fan of celery, but this recipe was still great without it. :) Thank you - Read more ...
