This old-fashioned stuffing or dressing recipe is made with cracker crumbs, garlic, butter, chestnuts, and lots of bread. It is perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner and pairs well with turkey, chicken, or even roast beef or lamb.
Melt butter in a medium skillet. Add onion, sauté until translucent, about 3 minutes. Press the garlic into the skillet and sauté just a bit longer, just until the garlic is fragrant (typically less than a minute). Don't overcook the garlic.
Toss bread cubes and crackers in a large bowl and mix well.
Pour eggs, chestnuts, and onion mixture over top. Mix well. Add just enough milk so that the bread is moisten but not wet. (*You may not need a full cup; do not use too much or your finished stuffing will be soggy.)
Cover with foil and bake for one hour or until golden brown on top. If the top doesn't get crispy, you can remove the foil and bake it for 10-15 minutes uncovered.
