Sweet Hawaiian Bread Simple Stuffing

This recipe has been modified. The original recipe used the King Hawaiian premade stuffing mix. The mix is no longer available in stores.

Who doesn’t love Hawaiian Bread! That sweet fluffy goodness that just melts in your mouth. Our family loves this bread, so when I saw they now made stuffing I was over the moon. By the way, this is not a sponsored post I just love this brand!

I am seeing a lot of recipes using  King’s Hawaiian Bread stuffing online, that’s nothing new, but in our family, we have always used dried bread cubes.

Being from the south we have one family recipe and that’s it. No one would dare change it, people would just stop speaking to you.

So we never try anything new. Well, that’s about to change! I love the sweetness and flavor of this stuffing. I may have to substitute this blend in my own family recipe from now on.

MAKE AHEAD: Place single servings in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.

Sweet Hawaiian Bread Simple Stuffing

Simple Stuffing for Holidays, great base to add other ingredients.
Servings: 8
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Calories: 31


  • 12 oz pack of 12 Kings Hawaiian Dinner Rolls, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 small sweet onion, diced
  • 3 celery stalks with leaves, diced
  • 1-3 cups chicken broth (or turkey broth), I use low sodium
  • 2-3 Tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp fresh flat-leaf parsley, minced
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • poultry seasoning, Optional for added flavor


Toasting the Bread

  •  Heat the oven to 325°F, cut your bread into even-sized cubes (1/2 inch), and toast them in the oven for 15–20 minutes, or until lightly browned.

The Stuffing Recipe

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Saute onions, celery, parsley, poultry seasoning, and butter in a medium saucepan until translucent.
  • In a large bowl, add the bread, then pour in the onion and celery mixture.
  • Slowly add in the broth and gently mix.
  • IMPORTANT: If the stuffing is too stiff add more broth. Add the broth in slowly, you do not want the stuffing to have a mushy soupy consistency. Be careful with your bread-to-broth: Too much stock and your dish will be mushy; too little, and your dish will be dry and bland.
  • Add to a 3 quart casserole dish.
  • Cover with foil.
  • Bake 30 minutes, removing the foil the last ten minutes to brown the top.
  • For a more crunchy stuffing bake uncovered.


The poultry seasoning is optional. but for added flavor.
I use the celery leaves when I cook because they have so much flavor. They really bring out the taste of the celery and the house smells heavenly!

  1. Yep Kings Hawaiian discontinued the mix.

    1. Hi, Kim, I was wondering about that too. I do see where you can just use a pack of dinner rolls cubed to substitute. I will edit the recipe. Thanks

    2. Lisa S. Long says:

      Since the chief are seasoned, what if I use the rolls? Do I add a seasoning?

      1. Hi Lisa, I updated the recipe with seasoning.. This post was posted when the Kings Hawaiian mix was available to purchase. Sadly, it no longer exists.

  2. We could not find the King’s Sweetbread Stuffing mix for Thanksgiving 2017, so we cubed King’s Sweetbread and made our own stuffing.

    1. It is hard to find. I bet cubing the bread was great too!

  3. I cannot find this stuffing mix anywhere! Including on the King’s Hawaiian web site. What can I use to substitute?

    1. I have found this stuffing at Walmart for the last two years. It is a seasonal item. Keep checking your local store or contact the company for when they will do the release for it. You can use any stuffing mix to substitute.

  4. I am making this today. Thank you for the inspiration!
