Being prepared for the holiday cooking extravaganza can be simple if you take some steps in advance, and making a shelf-stable herb seasoned stuffing mix can do just that. It is great for when you have some stale bread sitting around (and who doesn’t have that from time to time?) and this will keep in a sealed ziploc bag for a couple months if necessary.

This simple recipe will save you both time and a few extra dollars from shopping, and be one less thing to worry about having to shop for in the busy holiday supermarket.

Herb Seasoned Stuffing Mix

  • 12 ounces stale dinner rolls or white bread, cut into cubes
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon instant chicken bouillon or crushed chicken bouillon cubes


  • Preheat oven to 200F.
  • Place bread cubes in a large mixing bowl.
  • Melt butter with herbs and bouillon until well mixed.
  • Drizzle cubes with herb butter, tossing cubes to evenly mix seasoning.
  • Spread cubes in a single layer on a large baking sheet.
  • Bake for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until completely dry (test one), stirring every 15-20 minutes so it gets dry on all sides. They should not taste chewy at all, but be crunchy like crisp salad croutons.
  • Cool and store up to 3 months in a sealed container in a cool dry place.
  • Note: If you need a larger batch or use more bread, make a separate batch since this amount of bread cubes is about all a large baking pan will hold in a single layer, and you don’t want to heap it as it keeps it from drying completely.
