      Now, the unseasoned bread cubes can be made easily by simply stacking several slices of bread, then cutting them into small cubes. Place these on a cookie sheet and bake at 200F for a few minutes until they are crispy/dry.

      You'll Need:
      3-1/2 cups unseasoned dried bread cubes
      3 tablespoons dried celery flakes
      1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
      2 teaspoons dried minced onion
      2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
      1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
      1/4 teaspoon sage
      1/2 tsp pepper
      1/2 tsp Thyme
      1/2 tsp Salt (optional, as bouillon is salty!)

      Measure all ingredients into a ziploc bag or into a jar, seal. (Makes 1 Jar of Mix)

      Instructions to attach to jar:
      Bring the following items to boil:
      1 cup water
      2 tablespoons butter or margarine

      Add jar of stuffing mix, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Toss with a fork before serving.

      Variations:


      • Add 1/2 lb browned, crumbled sausage (add in during cooking)
      • Add 1/2 c. finely diced, peeled apples (add in during cooking)
      • Add 1/4 c. Dried Cranberries & and an additional 1/4 c. water to cooking

        I like to use stuffing a few times a month usually. I like to try and cook a whole chicken every week and use that with the leftovers! Looks yummy!

        This will be a real money saver for me. I like to use stuffing as a replacement for potatoes or pasta once in a while, probably twice a month. Its great in a casserole as well.

        I made this recipes several times, never any leftovers!! It tastes so much better than any store bought box of stuffing. Will be making extra batches, to give to others. Thanks.
