I consider it a "tough" "chewy" bread. The main thing is not sandwich bread.

Try the local bakery or the bakery dept of your supermarket. They will likely have bags of crumbs/cubes for the holiday dressing and made up of whatever variety they make.

I would bake my own...but French bread would work. If you don't have a bakery or a bakery section in your grocery store, check the freezer section.

If you don't have a bakery that does "artisan" bread, French bread would work.

It's usually baked free-form - and has crunchy crust - and a firm texture. Use any firm bread - that is not spongy and airy.

I have dough in bowls on the cabinet so that I can bake Dutch oven bread after work today. That's my contribution to Thanksgiving dinner at stepD's this year. That and my labor helping her once we get there...
