Betsy Kling shares her mom's Thanksgiving stuffing recipe

What's a good Thanksgiving dinner without the stuffing?

CLEVELAND — With just over a week left until Thanksgiving, food is at the top of mind for many Americans. That being said, 3News Chief Meteorologist Betsy Kling decided to once again share her family's recipe for one of Thanksgiving's most iconic dishes. 

Last year, Betsy told viewers the story of her family's stuffing recipe and the special impact that it has for her and her mom, while also sharing photos of the original written out recipe. 

“My aunt Sandi, who wrote it out, is my mom’s twin who passed away seven years ago,” Betsy said in 2020. “The line added by my grandmother (also passed) notes the eggs that my mom always forgot.”

Find out how you can make Betsy's family stuffing, below:

The recipe reads as follows:

  • Bread
  • Butter
  • Celery and onions (cut up dry before and add spices)
  • Mushrooms (optional)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Poultry seasoning
  • Wine (chicken stock)
  • Giblets (optional)
  • Eggs


  • Two large loaves of bread
  • Cube with electric knife
  • Round roaster
  • 325 degrees for approximately 40 minutes

Betsy also says that a big key is getting the bread dry, adding that her family leaves theirs out the day before.
