This homemade stuffing recipe will be your new go-to recipe once you taste the moist center, crispy tops and that rich buttery herb seasoning. You’ll ditch boxed stuffing and never go back. This recipe skips the need for dried bread cubes, using fresh bread instead. We use organic Dave’s Killer White Bread because it’s our favorite and not too soft when mixing stuffing with fresh bread. We make this stuffing recipe as side dish for Easter, Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.  We always get asked for the recipe whenever we make it and you will too.
