Delicious bread made with all of the flavors of holiday stuffing. Perfect for making your stuffing from or grilled sandwiches the next day.
Herbed Turkey Stuffing Bread
This is a recipe I have been making for years. It makes the best dressing. All of the flavors of dressing are combined in this recipe. It makes 2 medium sized loaves. One of them will serve about 8 people once you add the rest of your dressing ingredients. I always add a cup of cornbread pieces to mine, I love the texture it gives the dressing. It is best if you make it the day before you want to use it.
It also makes the best grilled cheese and turkey sandwich the day after Thanksgiving too! If I was going to make sandwiches with this I would make 1 large load instead of 2 medium ones. I would make this bread just for that reason alone!
