To dry bread cubes, spread cubes in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake in a 300°F oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until cubes are dry, stirring twice; cool. Or let bread cubes stand loosely covered at room temperature for 8 to 12 hours.
For extra golden color, add a sprinkle of sugar to the onion-carrot mixture after removing lid.
To Stuff a Turkey
Spoon the stuffing lightly into the body and neck cavity of the turkey. (Spoon any remaining stuffing into a casserole and chill. Bake, covered, alongside the turkey for 40 minutes or until heated through.) Roast the turkey, adding an additional 15 to 45 minutes to the timing. Use an instant-read thermometer to make sure the stuffing inside the turkey is 165°F.
Prepare as above and transfer mixture to the casserole. Cover and chill up to 24 hours. To serve, bake, covered, alongside the turkey for 60 minutes or until heated through.
