Really good and easy. I did not stuff as I just cooked a turkey breast so I moistened with chicken broth and baked in a dish.


Was quite impressed with this simple and yet so good. Substituted chopped apple for the celery and used fresh sage instead of poultry seasoning. I baked it in a greased dish for about 30 minutes at 350 - no need to add any additional liquids. The second time I made this I baked individual servings of the dressing in a well-greased muffin tin. A fun garnish for a platter of sliced turkey...


ok so this is the stuffing i decided to go for for thanks giving dinner. it was my first time making stuffing and of course stuffing the bird. before i even got to stuff the bird i knew that this was gonna be good. it smelted just the way i remembered it. i've been feeding my family stuffing that comes in a box previously and my husband hated stuffing lol but now he is very pleased and happy with this, thankjs for the simple but delicious recipe. u made me look good :):)
