I tried this a few weeks ago and served it with a grilled turkey. I thought it was very good. My guests LOVED it. I used fresh herbs from my garden, a little extra broth and added dried cranberries. I did not toast the bread but did toast the walnuts. This will be my stuffing for Thanksgiving.
It was good, but when I saw that 8 people had given this recipe 5 stars I was expecting it to be GREAT. I substituted several things to make it gluten and dairy free (rice bread instead of bread crumbs, olive oil instead of butter, and almond milk instead of milk), which no doubt affected the outcome. If I make it again I will take the other people's suggestions to add more liquid (chicken stock) because I also like my stuffing moist.
This turned out great! I also added some stock for extra moistness, since I used more bread. I also added some dried cranberries. Everyone loved it and one guest even asked for the recipe.
