Homemade Bread Cubes for Stuffing From Scratch




Yield 10 cups dried stuffing cubes

Making Homemade Stuffing From Bread Cubes

To make homemade stuffing from your bread cubes simply sauté a diced onion and a few stalks of celery in a ¼ cup (half stick) of butter, add the cubes, and add enough broth to moisten them, 2 cups should do. Now bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

There, you just made delicious stuffing from scratch!



  1. Preheat oven to 250°F.
  2. Grease a rimmed baking sheet with 2 Tbsp of olive oil. (This will be way too much to grease the sheet, but you’ll use it in the next step).
  3. Place the bread cubes on the baking sheet and mix to coat them with the oil.
  4. Sprinkle seasonings over the bread cubes and mix to evenly distribute the seasonings.
  5. Once the seasonings are evenly distributed, arrange bread cubes in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake the bread cubes for 1½ - 2 hours, stirring after 1 hour, until they are completely dry.
  7. Once dry, remove bread cubes from the oven and let them cool completely on the pan.
  8. After they are cool, transfer them to a sealed container.
  9. If the bread cubes are completely dry, they should last for about a month.


If you want to get fancy, use your homemade bread cubes to make a unique stuffing like this French Chestnut Stuffing or this Mushroom Dill Stuffing.
