Recipe Notes

  • I made mashed potatoes by boiling Yukon Gold potatoes in salted water. After mashing them I added salt, pepper and a splash of cream to loosen them up.
  • This recipe could easily be doubled and cooked in a 13x9-inch baking pan.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Melt the butter in a pan. Add the onions and celery and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the bread pieces and cook about 2 minutes more.
  3. Combine the bread mixture, mashed potatoes, egg, sage and parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Pour the mixture into a buttered baking dish.
  5. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 40 to 45 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and crispy.

We had this for dinner tonight and it is SOOO good! I cannot wait for leftovers tomorrow. Will definitely be making this for Thanksgiving this year.
What a great idea! Perfect holiday dish. 🍗

OMG, Donna John , this looks amazing. I usually make both potatoes and stuffing, so this recipe is pretty genius. Definitely trying this for Thanksgiving (but it looks like it could be a meal itself)! #yum
Genius, Donna John ! And whilst we Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving over a month ago, I can easily see this being made fairly often. I mean...what's NOT to love? Drowned - I mean drizzled 🤥 with some good gravy? Nirvana! Thanks for this one & in case I don't tty before then, Happy Thanksgiving!
Donna John
It was delicious! Will try drowning it in gravy next time. lol Happy Thanksgiving, and I hope you're feeling better.
Doing much better, thanks, now that I can actually get out of bed and walk!
I'd definitely drown (or drizzle, if you're the restrained type) this with gravy. I mean - if it was mashed potatoes, you'd use gravy, right? And if was a straight up dressing, you'd perhaps drizzle it with some gravy, too? If you like gravy, I say, go for it!
The only thing I see NOT being happy are my waist, and hips,
