This Classic Bread Stuffing recipe is fresh, homemade and the flavors are out of this world delicious. You’ll want it at every holiday feast.
Stuffing is an essential side dish to any Thanksgiving dinner. For most of my life all I’ve had is the box version (hello, Stove Top!) I absolutely love Stove Top, I’m not knocking it at all, but now that I’ve had homemade stuffing there is just no comparison. 🙂
This Classic Bread Stuffing is so fresh, unprocessed and the flavors are just out of this world. I used a loaf of crusty sour dough bread from a local bakery, and it made this stuffing completely delicious. I think this will be a new tradition for our Thanksgiving dinners.
