Really good, I didn't have any garlic or fresh herbs but it was still very good!!
Wickedly delicious: great blend of flavours. Just love apple and sage together. I omitted nothing; added nothing. I used chicken stock. We were able to pack several portions in the freezer for future indulgences. Thanks for sharing another great recipe, KITTENCAL!
Great stuffing, Kittencal! I love all your recipes. I cut this one in half, and skipped the nutmeg. Also, I only had fresh sage, so I snipped some in the recipe, and browned some in butter to put on top for a flavorful garnish. (My husband didn't like apples in his stuffing, but otherwise liked it. That's just him.) Delicious and quick -thanks for a great recipe.
