There are several common mistakes you should avoid when making stuffing. First, it’s important to completely dry out the bread you use as a base for your stuffing. If you make stuffing with soft, fresh baked bread, the stuffing will have a soggy, soupy texture (no, thank you). To avoid this, use stale, dried-out bread for the best stuffing. You can save time by using packaged mix as well. Another key to a tasty stuffing is adding the right amount of liquid. Adding too little stock will result in an overly dry stuffing. To find the right amount of liquid for your dish, add about a half cup at a time. For the best results, the bread mixture should absorb the stock without any excess at the bottom of the dish.
