This is an old standby in Pensylvania Dutch country! To use as a stuffing, increase bread to 6 slices and add 2 beaten eggs.

This was a great recipe! I added chicken broth to the potatoes when mashing. also, didnt have celery on hand so used about 1/3 cup of green bell pepper. i fried my bread cubes in butter too after I shook them up in some italian season and salt/pepper. This is a great side dish when u need something heavier. GOOD EATS!!!
