This recipe is intended as a baked dressing to accompany the Thanksgiving turkey . It can be used as stuffing (a practice I do not recommend for turkey), if you desire. It also makes a good stuffing for capon or pork.
Bread, seasonings, and butter make up this time-honored classic. Cook the celery and onions ahead, but don't add the broth; toast and cube the bread. Then refrigerate separately and complete recipe when ready to bake.
