Most Americans no doubt love their family's traditional Thanksgiving stuffing. Here's my mom's recipe that I have used and adapted for many years. It's always been my favorite part of the holiday meal. I hope you enjoy it! This is a good amount for an 18 pound turkey. The amounts may be easily increased or decreased. I make bread crumbs by slicing and cutting different types of bread, like whole wheat, sourdough, and potato. I usually dry the bread in a large, deep pan in the oven, stirring often for about 15-20 minutes at around 350 degrees. My mom used to prepare the bread cubes on the Monday evening before Thanksgiving, putting them in bowls or pans, covering them with cloths, and stirring occasionally to achieve a dry texture in a few days.
