Poultry stuffing with chestnuts, bread, and wine

This recipe has long been part of my Thanksgiving Day tradition. I have long since forgotten its source.


(Stuffs 12-16 lbs poultry)


  1. In hot butter in a large skillet, sautae onion, celery, and parsley, stirring, for about 5 minutes.
  2. In a large kettle, combine bread cubes, chestnuts, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Toss to mix well.
  3. Combine cream and wine; mix well. Add to bread mixture, along with the vegetables and drippings in skillet. Toss lightly, using 2 forks.


In North America, use "half and half" for light cream.


Difficulty: easy but tedious.
Time: 1 hour preparation.
Precision: approximate measurement OK.
