Bread DressingThis tasty bread dressing is great for the holidays and can even be made gluten free, by using gluten free bread cubes. I make my own gluten free bread, but you can also buy gluten-free bread in the store and cut the pieces into cubes. The rest of the instructions are the same! This recipe tastes best when served immediately, but I have had fair success at making it the day before, baking partially, and finishing baking it just before serving. It's simple and delicious! Our favorite way is to serve it with cranberry sauce (check out our cranberry sauce recipe!). But it tastes great with gravy, too. Happy holiday cooking!
