  • Personally if I can't make from scratch I use Pepperidge farms Herb Stuffing. Directions are on the bag and I add chopped onion, a little celery and raisens. My cousin does the betty crocker recipe and frankly it stinks IMO. Good Luck.

  • ..I would use some sort of broth, like chicken or vegetable...I've never put an egg in stuffing before.....

  • Just put more liquid/broth in the stuffing if it is dry.

  • Egg will not make stuffing moist. Fat will.


    You can use regular bread or corn bread in this recipe.Any kind of bread will do.

  • Egg serves as a binding agent, people use it to hold it together....it doesnt help with moisture...and i agree with the above, add more broth!!

  • Use extra broth. That will help. Egg would probably make it worse. It is a binding agent.
