Mom’s Stuffing, Lightened Up

French bread, bacon, onion, celery, sage and parsley are combined then baked to make a place at your
Thanksgiving table.
This is my mother’s lightened up version for all of you to enjoy. For more people double this recipe, you can use this to stuff a turkey, chicken, veal or bake this in a casserole dish and serve it on the side. It’s best to let the bread sit out overnight to get hard, but if your pressed for time you can put it in the oven at 250° for about 30 minutes, stirring half way until the bread is completely firm.
