My family can't get enough of this, I made it for Thanksgiving and had to make it for twice since then! My any changes is adding celery, 2 tsp sage and rosemary and lightly toasting the bread before mixing with the other ingredients. Otherwise, fantastic! I have used this several times to make stuffed porkchops and with a pork crown roast.



I tend to try a new stuffing recipe every year. I have made many stuufings from fruit ones to the ordinary sage cornbread kind. But I'll tell you something, I tried this one for the first time this year. Next year I am going to use the same one. This is the best dressing ever, all I did to alter it was add about 2 tablespoons of sage. otherwise it is perfect and the only one I will use in years to come.



This is a really versitile recipe. I've made it half a dozen times. I use it to stuff mushrooms, flank steak and birds. Great everytime.
