Thanksgiving filling

My mom used to make Thanksgiving dinner and now I'm continuing the tradition. She loves to cook and entertain and loves to be a host. When she did, we all helped by bringing a side dish, appetizers, and dessert so she wouldn't do all the work. That way we could enjoy our time together, because isn't that the point?

I always loved my mom's homemade filling. I took their recipe and lightened it up slightly without affecting the taste. For more people, double this recipe! Mama always fills the turkey with one serving and makes another serving in a baking dish that is served as a side dish.

It's best to cut the bread and let it sit overnight so it hardens, but if you're pressed for time, you can put it in the oven at 250 ° F for about 30 minutes, stirring halfway up the bread is completely firm.

How do you spend your Thanksgiving and who is cooking?
