Many have asked me if they can use Toasties crackers to make stuffing. The answer is yes! Here’s my moist and flavorful stuffing recipe, made with Toasties crackers. You can use any variety you choose and customize the recipe with the optional mix-ins I have suggested below. I even made it with Pizza crackers, which came out excellent! It comes together in a snap, is so simple to make, and is versatile enough to fit any holiday meal.

Yield: 6 servings

Serving size: 1/2 cup


  • 4 tbsp. (56g) unsalted butter
  • 1-2 cups (240-280g) of very hot, unsalted chicken stock or water
  • 2 bags of Toasties Crackers, any variety
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • *Optional mix-ins, any combination, up to two cups:
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) homemade dried cranberries
    • 1/2 cup(125ml) chopped nuts
    • 1/4 small onion, finely chopped
    • 3/4 cup (175ml)chopped mushrooms
    • 3/4 cup (175ml) sausage
    • 3 tbsp. (45ml) dried parsley
    • 1/4 tsp. (1ml) dried sage

*Note: If a full two cups of optional ingredients are added to the base recipe, the number of servings will increase from six to twelve, and any addition of ingredients will affect the number of carbs per serving. The nutritional information for this recipe was calculated using the base recipe without the mix-ins.


  1. Place the crackers into the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process the crackers until they become breadcrumbs.
  2. Butter a casserole dish, and preheat the oven to 350° F. (180° C)
  3. Melt the butter in a 3qrt. (3L) saucepan. If you are adding nuts or vegetables, use the butter to saute them lightly.
  4. Add about 1/2 cup of the liquid to the pan and remove from the heat.
  5. Add the breadcrumbs to the pan. If you are using any seasonings, add them now. The parsley and sage are great options if you use Original Toasties to make your stuffing. It gives the recipe a more traditional flavor. Since Toasties contain salt, salt is not recommended to be added.
  6. Mix the crumbs with the liquid in the pan.
  7. Add the eggs to the pan and mix well to incorporate.
  8. Mix enough of the remaining broth or water into the pan to create a very moist, but not wet or soupy stuffing.
  9. Using a large spoon, spoon the stuffing into the buttered baking dish. Do not pat down or flatten it with the spoon. (This will preserve the stuffing’s fluffy texture when baking.)
  10. Cover the casserole dish with a lid or aluminum foil and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes or until the stuffing has set. For moist stuffing, serve immediately; for a crisper top, uncover the casserole dish and brown for 10-15 minutes before serving.

Nutritional Information Per Serving will vary depending on which variety of crackers you choose and on the use of optional mix-ins. The nutritional information for this recipe was calculated using the base recipe without the mix-ins.
