Stuffing isn’t just a side dish that goes with the Thanksgiving turkey; stuffing can be eaten any time of the year as an alternative to the routine potato, rice or pasta side dish. Stuffing is also a good accompaniment to pork chops, chicken, roast beef and yes, even turkey. Use store bought stuffing bread or recycle bread heels for a side dish your family will love.

Pour broth mixture over stuffing bread. Toss gently to make sure all bread is coated.

Stuff chicken or turkey with stuffing, or bake stuffing alone by placing it in an 9×9 inch greased baking pan and baking 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Makes 4 one cup servings.
