We usually make Onion Soup Mix Meatloaf because it is so easy. There are times though when I have run out of Italian bread crumbs and need something else to use as the binder. Crushed croutons are another options if you have those but for more flavor I suggest boxed stuffing.

From there you can tweak the ingredients or the glaze on top to make into a Spicy Meatloaf Recipe too if you want some heat in there. This classic dish has a whole new look and add ins nowadays to make it beyond delicious with every bite.

You could use another protein to make this like our Venison Meatloaf Recipe or half and half works great too. Sometimes I will combine half spicy ground sausage from Jimmy Dean to add a bit of heat and a bit more fat into the mix.

Homemade Stovetop Stuffing is a delicious side dish that you can prepare quickly and easily on the stovetop. Here’s a basic recipe for homemade stovetop stuffing:

  • 8 cups of bread cubes (use day-old or slightly dried bread, such as white, whole wheat, or a combination)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2-3 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced (optional)
  • 2-3 cups of low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1-2 teaspoons of poultry seasoning (adjust to taste)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh herbs (such as parsley, sage, thyme), chopped (optional)

Prepare Bread Cubes – Cut the bread into small cubes and spread them out on a baking sheet. Allow them to air dry for a few hours or overnight to slightly stale the bread. Alternatively, you can toast the cubes in a 300°F (150°C) oven for about 15-20 minutes until they are slightly crisp like our Sourdough Croutons.

  1. Sauté Vegetables in a large skillet or saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
    • Add the finely chopped onion and celery. Sauté for 5-7 minutes, or until the vegetables become soft and translucent. If using garlic, add it in the last minute of sautéing.
  2. Season Vegetables by stirring in the poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper. Adjust the seasoning to your taste preferences.
  3. Combine Bread Cubes in a large mixing bowl with the sautéed vegetable mixture over the bread cubes and toss to combine.

Feel free to customize with chopped apples, dried cranberries, chopped nuts, or cooked sausage to enhance the flavor and texture. Copycat stovetop stuffing is a versatile dish that can be adapted to suit your preferences and complement your holiday or everyday meals.
