Bread Cubes for Stuffing


Thanksgiving is just eight days away. It’s stuffing time! Those bread cubes of delight are a Thanksgiving staple. And it’s not that hard to make the bread cubes yourself!

As for a song, I thought about cubes. Nothing. Then I thought about squares and remembered “Dewey Square” played by Charlie Parker.

Bread Cubes for Stuffing


  • 2 French bread baguettes, cut into ½ inch cubes (about 6 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon sage
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place bread cubes on a large baking pan with low sides—a jelly roll pan works.
  3. Sprinkle poultry seasoning, sage and black pepper over the cubes.
  4. Toss the cubes with your hands to coat them with the spices.
  5. Turn oven down to 250 degrees. Put pan in oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and toss the cubes with a large spoon. Return to oven and bake for 10 minutes longer. If the cubes are toasted thoroughly, turn the oven off and let them continue to bake for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven. Let the cubes completely cool before putting them in a sealable plastic bag to save them for future use. Put in the freezer to store.
