Thanksgiving Bread Stuffing

Bread Stuffing

No Thanksgiving day meal is complete without a great stuffing for the holiday. This traditional moist bread stuffing for Thanksgiving Turkey is one of our favorites. Plan on 3/4 to one cup stuffing per pound of turkey (if you plan on stuffing the bird) any extra can be baked in a buttered caserole dish about 45 minutes prior to serving time.

This Thanksgiving stuffing recipe should be packed lightly into the Turkey, as it will expand some during cooking.
