Almost Homemade Stuffing

Here is how to make bagged stuffing taste really, really good:

Melt one stick of butter in a medium size pot (big enough for all of your stuffing - so if you are hosting 42 for dinner, you might need a large pot). Chop one onion and 3 stalks of celery into a medium dice. Cook these in the butter. Add fresh pepper and sage (fresh or dried). Then replace half the water (as per the bag) with a low sodium chicken broth (or homemade stock). Wala! Yummy stuffing.

If you need to then hold it hot in the oven: spoon it into a casserole dish but make sure NOT to smooth out the top. Dot with more butter, and pop it in. The top will get little crunchy bits.
