I started making a homemade stuffing similar to this for family holiday meals a couple years ago and play with the recipe a little each time. I'm a big fan of Texas Toast (especially their garlic bread, YUM)! This time I made stuffing was definitely my favorite.
You will need:
12 slices Texas Toast (if you cannot find "Texas Toast" in your local grocery store no worries, look for a thicker cut butter crust white bread and use that).
10 slices whole wheat bread.
1 can cream of chicken soup - reduced sodium is fine.
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
4 tbsp butter
1 3/4 cups water
1 tbsp poultry seasoning
Toast all bread until crisp but not too browned. I find it easiest to lay out pieces on baking trays and bake in the oven, but a toaster would work too - just takes a little longer with how much bread there is. Cut toasted bread into small cubes as shown in picture and place them all in a large bowl.
Once bread is done preheat oven to 350'.
In a medium sauce pan melt butter and then add in chopped celery, pepper, and onion cooking over medium heat about 5 minutes. They will soften more when baked so they don't need to be too cooked.
Add in water poultry seasoning, soup, and a little salt & pepper to taste and stir over medium-high heat until everything is thoroughly combined.
Pour sauce mixture over bread cubes in bowl and stir together until bread is evenly coated.
Pour bread mixture into a 9X12 baking dish - bake 30 minutes.
