I would make this again with a couple of changes. This was just too sweet for us, and not enough savory. I left out the raisins & nuts and instead added crumbled italian sausage. I think next time I would also add some garlic to the stuffing and perhaps some yellow onion instead of the green, for a more intense savory flavor. We did enjoy it though, this was our Christmas Eve dinner. Even my 1 year old son ate some of it. Thanks for posting the recipe.
