Homemade stuffing recipe? (with a few requirements)

Njchicaa | Oct 31, 201302:10 PM     28

I want to try making homemade stuffing this year for Thanksgiving and am looking for your best recipes and suggestions. I have a few requirements, though. I never really consider myself a picky person but when I thought about what I wanted in a stuffing recipe I had to rethink my opinion!

I'm looking for a traditional bread stuffing recipe--no rice, no cornbread, etc. I do not like fruit or nuts in my food so no apples, cranberries, raisins, walnuts, hazelnuts, etc. I also do not eat sausage so that can't be a vital ingredient. I'm not a fan of fennel (tricked too many times at my Italian grandma's house as a child thinking it was celery) but I would consider using it because the flavor supposedly mellows out when it is cooked. My family likes pretty much any spice/seasoning except for curry powder.

I'm making Ina Garten's Accidental Turkey which has lemon zest and rosemary on and in it if that makes any difference. I also don't mind complicated or time-consuming recipes.

Are there any good, traditional, non-fruit/nut stuffing recipes out there or should I just stick to StoveTop? Thanks!
