This was quite the hit when my Mom made this for the family Sunday after Church, and it was a nice change from how we had been previously eating all the leftovers after Thanksgiving. What do you think about this recipe? Would you add anything?

  1. My dad does something really similar, and it’s always delicious! He’s even put in leftover cranberries. That wasn’t my favorite, but it was okay. Corn is a yummy addition, as is squash or sweet potatoes. Mmm… Now if ONLY I could find a stuffing recipe I like. I cook from scratch pretty much exclusively, but there is nothing quite like Stove Top for stuffing. What can I say, it’s what I grew up with and I love the flavor. I know the ingredients list is a mile long, and that pretty much deters me from buying it… except for maybe once a year when I decide, what the heck, let’s have stuffing. :) I figure once a year won’t kill us. It’s incredibly unhealthy, so it’s definitely a ‘treat’.
