Never Fail Bread Dressing

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Chef George S.

A quick and easy dressing recipe. Almost as easy to make as the boxed stuff, but with a real homemade taste.

I'm not much of a dressing maker and this turned out great! I didn't fool with the pecans and during the process discovered I was out of sage and had to use poultry seasoning instead. I used homemade bread and extra broth because I like a moister dressing. Next time I will cut or tear the bread into smaller pieces. I used homemade bread and left it in pretty big hunks and would have preferred smaller cubes. This was perfect for two people. It gave us each a generous serving for two meals. Chef George S., thanks for the great recipe!
