Prep Time:25 mins
Cook Time:40 mins
Total Time:1 hr 5 mins


  • 2 cups roasted chestnuts, chopped
  • 6 cups bread cubes
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 whole onion, diced
  • 2-3 whole carrots, diced
  • 1 bunch celery, diced
  • 1 ½ cups bone broth, stock, or bouillon
  • 2 TBSP sage, chopped
  • 2 TBSP thyme, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt (to taste)
  • fresh ground pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 350˚F.
  • Melt butter in a large skillet.
  • Add chopped onions, carrots, and celery. Cook until soft and translucent, stirring to keep from browning.
  • Add chopped chestnuts, herbs, and bone broth. Mix to combine the ingredients.
  • Add bread cubes and incorporate well. If the stuffing is too dry, add more broth however, it should not be soggy.
  • If stuffing your turkey: stuff turkey and roast for the appropriate time and temperature.
  • If baking the stuffing separately, bake the stuffing in the large cast-iron skillet with lid or any other baking dish with cover (you can use aluminum foil) for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, take lid or foil off and bake for another 10 minutes uncovered.
  • Pro tip: if you are baking the stuffing separately you can drizzle turkey drippings over it to get a better flavor.
