Question How many slices of bread for bread crumbs?

Hi everyone. I'm making the following recipe:
Crock Pot Stuffing Recipe - Food.com - 49609

I'm making it identical to recipe except:
1. Going to dry white bread cubed in a cold oven over night instead of toasting it
2. Omit the apple.

It calls for 12 cups of lightly toasted bread crumbs

I think that means i need to use 24 slices of bread (1 slice of bread = 1/2 cup day old dried bread cubes) but i want to make sure.

any help appreciated.



If you can't take the heat, then get out of the kitchen!!!

Preheat your oven to about 250 degrees, then turn off the heat. Put your bread cubes in the oven (on a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil) and monitor them over the next 15-30 minutes, take them out when they're a little bit browned on the edges.

I doubt your overnight in a cold oven will make them anything but stale. I think "stale" in most recipes is just a way to indicate it's a good way to use bread past its prime. I think in most cases fresh is acceptable, except for fresh having more moisture so fresh and most might require a bit more drying and or crisping time.

I don't like apples either. :)

According to The Cook's Thesaurus, 1 cup of dry bread crumbs is 4 slices of bread, while 1 cup of fresh bread crumbs is 3 slices, and 1 cup of cubed bread is 2 slices.
If you love something, set it free. If it doesn't come back, HUNT IT DOWN AND KILL IT!
