The smell of this stuffing being prepared is heavenly. It is a fight to keep the family from "sampling it" until it is all gone! This stuffing is cooked in a 9x13 pan - not inside the turkey.

Oh so yummy! I didn't have sage so used poultry seasoning instead, and I didn't have mushrooms but oh, wow, this was delicious. Lots of compliments on Thanksgiving. Thanks for the recipe!
