History of Stuffing Recipe

When stuffings were originally used first is unknown.

The Roman cookbook Apicius De Re Coquinaria, which includes recipes for stuffed chicken, dormice, hare, and pork, is the first piece of written documentation.

The majority of the mentioned stuffings are made of vegetables, nuts, herbs, and spices, along with the cereal spelt, and frequently include chopped liver, brains, and other organ meat.

Farce (about 1390), stuffing (1538), forcemeat (1688), and, more recently in the United States, dressing are some of the names used for stuffing (1850).



  1. Preheat the oven to 135°C  (275°F).

  2. Butter a deep, approx 20 x 30cm baking dish.

  3. Spread the bread cubes onto a baking sheet and sprinkle with the olive oil and bake for 30 minutes, or until is crisp and dry.

  4. While the bread cubes are in the oven, sauté the onion, garlic and celery with a pinch of salt in three-quarters of the butter in a large pan over medium heat for 10 minutes, or until softened.

  5. Stir in the herbs and plenty of black pepper. Salt to taste.

  6. Drop in the baked bread cubes, and mix to combine. Then add half of the chicken stock and mix again.

  7. Place the stuffing mixture into the prepared dish and leave to cool slightly.

  8. Set up the oven at 180 °C (356 °F).

  9. Mix together the eggs with the remaining chicken stock, then pour the mixture evenly over the filling.

  10. Cut the remaining butter in cubes, and sprinkle evenly on top of the filling.

  11. Cover with foil, and bake for 30 minutes. Then, take off the foil and bake for an additional 30 minutes, or until golden.

    Enjoy, Good Appetite!
