The most important ingredient for any stuffing is the bread cubes. If you have the time and want to make your stuffing extra special and tasty. Buy a 1 pound loaf of your favorite bread. It can be Focacia, French, or any other specialty bread that is baked with herbs and spices. Cut the bread into 1/2 inch cubes and place them on a cookie sheet. Toast them in your over for about 15 to 20 minutes at 375 degrees. Your guest will be ever so grateful.
