Jim Dolson's Turkey Rub

Low Carb Stuffing Bread
This is a bread I make to use to make low carb stuffing for turkey or chicken. It can also be a stovetop type of thing, but is better if it at least bakes for a little while. I also use it as a casserole topping if I have some left over. It's gluten-free as well.
