Recipe step by step directions:
Step 1: Slice your bread into small cubes on a cutting board. If your bread was frozen, be sure to let it thaw on the counter for 30-45 minutes to partially thaw first.
HINT: I like to make my gluten free stuffing cubes smaller like a boxed mix.
Step 2: Place the bread cubes into a small bowl.
Step 3: Drizzle the oil over the cubes and toss to coat. Preheat your oven to 325º F. Sprinkle the seasoning over the unseasoned stuffing cubes and mix well.
Step 4: Spread the bread cubes out on a baking sheet. Be sure they are not on top of each other so they bake evenly.
Step 5: Bake the stuffing cubes for 8 minutes then stir them so the other sides can get toasted.
Step 6: Allow the toasted bread cubes to cool and then put into an air-tight container.
You can flavor your stuffing cubes in so many ways when making an instant stuffing mix! I use the basics including thyme, oregano, and basil. Here are some of my favorite seasonings you can also use:

Tips and Recipe FAQ:
That is a tricky question because it depends on what you like. I tend to use gluten free white bread for stuffing cubes because they are the most neutral in flavor.
Absolutely. I pop them into a freezer-safe zip-style bag and put them into the freezer.
These stuffing cubes should keep fresh for up to 2 weeks. If you are making ahead longer, you should freeze your cubes.
For this recipe, I recommend using dried herbs so that there isn't extra moisture coming into the bread cubes. Use the fresh herbs when you make the stuffing.
Store this gluten free stuffing mix in an air-tight container. I love using mason jars, but you can use any container or even a zip-style zipper bag.
