  • Casserole Dish


  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 4 slices bread
  • 1 onion
  • 2 celery sticks
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon mixed dried herbs
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F / 180 C,
  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add diced onion and celery, and sauté for a few minutes until the onion is soft.
  • Combine the buttered celery and onions with mashed potatoes, torn or cubed bread, and seasoning. Transfer this to an 8 inch or 9 inch square baking dish, or any other oven safe dish that the stuffing will fit into.
  • Bake the potato stuffing for about 45 minutes, or until the top is starting to turn golden brown.



  • Refrigerate leftovers for up to 4 days, or freeze them for up to 6 months.
  • This is a great make ahead side dish for Thanksgiving.
  • Use your favorite mashed potato recipe, store bought mashed potatoes or instant mashed potatoes.
  • Use any size casserole dish or baking dish, as long as it will fit your stuffing. I use a 9 inch square dish.
  • Feel free to use any seasoning that you like, or add for example cooked sausage or vegetables if you prefer.
