Recipe Notes

HOMEMADE DRIED BREAD CUBES:
To make the cubes, cut a slice of bread into strips about ¾ in. wide.  Cut each strip, to create cubes.  Once you have enough cubes cut, place them in a single layer onto a shallow baking sheet (cookie sheets with side work well).  Bake at 375°, until cubes are dry, usually about 10 minutes.  You can use the cubes immediately.

- This dish freezes really well!  Just mix it up and freeze it unbaked.  When you are ready to use it, allow it to thaw completely and then bake as directed.
