How to Make Gluten Free Bread Cubes for Stuffing

Bread Cubes

Homemade bread cubes are perfect for stuffing recipes, casseroles, and other recipes that call for bread cubes.

Since my family eats gluten free bread I have been saving the bread heels as well as the bread that has crumbled and for whatever reason we just didn’t end up eating that slice of bread. I placed it all in a ziploc bag and left it in the freezer for months in order to make Toasted Bread Cubes to use in my Thanksgiving Stuffing.

Some ask why not just use the fresh cubes; why do you toast them? The reason — the dried cubes absorb more of the juices while cooking! So let me show you just how easy it is to make!
