Test Kitchen Tip:*

If using to stuff a turkey, reduce broth to 3/4 to 1 cup. Try a mix of whole wheat, white, and multi-grain bread cubes for extra flavor.

Stuffing Additions:

- Stir 2 medium cored and chopped apples into bread cubes.- Omit 1 cup of the celery and substitute 2 cups sliced mushrooms. Cook mushrooms with the celery in Step 1, above.- Stir one 15-ounce can chestnuts, drained and coarsely chopped, into bread cubes.- Stir 1 cup cooked wild rice into bread cubes.
