Making stuffing for dinner? The combination of oats and cornmeal with the hint of orange makes this a good bread to use for your favorite stuffing recipe. Try adding some pecan halves, raisins or dried cranberries or cherries. It's great with chicken and turkey and for stuffing pork chops.

Cornmeal can be yellow, white or blue, depending on the type of corn from which it is made. Yellow cornmeal has slightly more vitamin A than white cornmeal. We like yellow cornmeal for this bread because it adds a sunny color that goes so well with the flavor of the orange juice. You may want to try the recipe with white or blue cornmeal for a change.
