Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min.


10-12 servings

This was my mother's recipe and is now a tradition at my house, too. My mother-in-law even preferred it to her own stuffing!


  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 11 slices day-old bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Romano cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  1. In a large saucepan, cook the beef, onion and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine bread cubes, crumbs, cheese, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Add butter; toss to coat. Beat egg and water; add to bread mixture. Add beef mixture, raisins and walnuts.
  3. Spoon into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover; bake 10 minutes longer or until browned.
