READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by mollypaul

So easy, so delicious and a perfect, frugal use for day-old or stale bread. Makes enough stuffing for a 12-16 pound bird. Variations: Olives, 1 cup (green, stuffed or black) OR 1/2 pound mushrooms chopped up and sauteed in butter. From the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947
