Challah Stuffing

Challah is a heavy egg bread that is delicious on its own or in this stuffing. You could also use regular bread if you can't find challah. The night before Thanksgiving, I cube the bread and leave it in a baking pan on top of the stove to get it nice and dry. I make it more on the savory side, so I don't include any of the optional ingredients. Enjoy!

Instructions

Sauté vegetables in a large pot. Add in everything else, and stir, mix and make into a stuffing sort of mush - not too wet, not dry - but a bit wetter than it is going to be (the stuffing, that is) after it is baked up. Stuff turkey or bake in a casserole.
