For six servings, use a greased 2-quart square baking dish. Prepare as directed above except cut all of the ingredient amounts in half. Bake as above. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
*Drying bead cubes:
Cut the bread into 1-inch cubes, using a serrated knife. Preheat the oven to 300° F. Arrange cubes in a single layer on a baking pan. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring once or twice.
If chilled overnight, baking time will be longer than if only chilled 2 hours.
