Say hi to Hello Joyous!
An organic, plant-based, sustainable beauty brand here to bring more joy to your day.
My mom has been making her legendary stuffing at every holiday and family gathering for as long as I can remember. When I asked her to share her recipe with me, she said it was in her head (uh-oh) and had never written it down (double uh-oh) but she’d be happy to tell me over the phone (yay!).
She shared her go-to ingredients along with her favourite bread to make it with - Silver Hills Ancient Grains or Squirelly bread. Side note: This is also my favourite bread to make almond butter banana toast.
I’m very happy to report, I made it and it was just as delicious as my Mom’s! Hurray! Especially because now I can share it with you. I only made a few modifications to my mom’s original recipe (can’t mess with a legendary recipe) by adding more dried herbs.
This stuffing is totally plant-based so that everyone can enjoy it. The key to good stuffing however, is good quality bread. I love Silver Hills Bakery because all of their breads are sprouted. This makes the wheat much easier to digest and less inflammatory in our system. The anti-nutrients are also eliminated so that you can easily digest all the nutrients in this bread.
No one will have a clue how healthy this stuffing is because I’ve also packed it with some hearty ingredients.
This stuffing has it all – apple, celery, onion, pumpkin seeds and walnuts. It’s fulfilling and full of gut-loving fibre! You’ll definitely want to leave room on your plate for this stuffing. It’s so incredibly flavourful, you don’t even need any gravy. I know this is a bold statement and I stand behind it!

*Let it sit out of the package overnight to go stale
There you have it, my mom’s Legendary Stuffing.
I hope I make you proud Ma McCarthy!

Thanks Mom! :) You're the sweetest <3
Aww so sweet to feature your mom. Very similar to my momma's stuffing. She uses almonds and chestnuts rather than pumpkin seeds and walnuts and adds carrots tooReply
Mmmm, almonds and chestnuts sounds wonderful too! I love all my mom's recipes. Sounds like your mama is a great cook too!
Loved this recipe so much it will be a family tradition from now on! Thank-you so much for sharing. ❤️❤️Reply
My pleasure! Glad you love it, I will pass on the message to my mom, she'll be so pleased!
Happy a thanksgiving Joy to you and your family! May I ask what type of apples you use?Reply
Any apple you like! I would say to choose your favourite tasting apple. If you like something more tart then granny smith is a great option although it gets sweeter as it cooks, or Royal Gala for a sweeter taste. Enjoy!
Yum! I am definitely going to make this recipe for this weekend !Reply
Glad to hear it!!
Would this be ok for a gluten-free person to eat?Reply
Not unless you're using gluten-free bread and Silver Hills Sprouted wheat bread is not gluten-free. However, you could follow the same recipe with a GF bread, it will still be yummy!!
Made this in a GF version yesterday for today's turkey feast! So simple and delish! Unfortunately, there's almost none left for today's actual turkey feast... LOL (Thank you, Ma McCarthy!)Reply
Hi Gina! I will let my mom know! So happy to hear you loved it!
Which GF bread did you use?
I wonder if this would work in a slow cooker. I’m the designated stuffing maker this year for Christmas and my parents will surely have their oven full of ham and chicken. This recipe sounds wonderful!Reply
If you do it in a slow cooker it would just make it very mushy. I like stuffing with a little texture and some crunchiness on the outside. So it really depends on what kind of texture you like for your stuffing. Hope that helps!
Thanks for your delicious recipe with . I will put this to my ayurvedic resorts in kerala.Reply
