Holiday Dressing with Craisins


For a really economical dressing to go along side a roasted chicken or a roasted turkey, a "doctored" box stuffing mix is the way to go.
I used a Stove Top sage flavored stuffing added in some onion and celery, more spices, some chicken broth and melted butter and of course those wonderful craisins.
The craisins were a two for $4.00 and the stuffing mix was on sale for $1.34 a box. There's enough for 8 average sized portions at a total cost of 59¢ per serving.

  • 1 box stuffing mix
  • 1 pkg. craisins
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup diced onion (small dice)
  • 3/4 cup diced celery (small dice)
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 pinches dried sage
  • 1/8 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp. granulated garlic
  • black pepper to taste

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°.
  2. In a bowl combine all of the ingredients. If you find the mix is too dry add some more broth.
  3. Place in an oven proof casserole dish. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake covered for about 45 minutes and uncover for the last 15 minutes.
