Expert Tips

Try adding additional ingredients to your stuffing to make it your own! Some flavorful additions you can stir in with your bread cubes are dried cranberries, apricots or cherries, currants or golden raisins, cut-up apples, sautéed mushrooms, toasted walnuts or pecans.

You can make the stuffing the day before you bake it; cover with foil, and refrigerate. Add 5 minutes to bake time to make sure it is heated through in center.
