About this Recipe

This classic Thanksgiving side dish is custardy on the inside and crisp on the outside. Instead of having to plan ahead to make sure you have stale bread, this recipe first bakes pieces of bread in the Brava which dries them out quickly. This allows the bread to soak up the maximum amount of flavor from the stock and seasonings. This stuffing is sure to be a hit at your Thanksgiving table!
