Excellent! I added 1/4 cup of fresh parmesan to the cracker mixture and omitted 1/4 of the oil. I also waited until after boiling them to remove the choke because it was easier. I used saltine cracker crumbs. I used chicken broth instead of the bouillion and water. The stuffing was soooo good! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!
I followed this exactly and it was delicious!!! I wish I made more. Great recipe, I will definitely make this again. Thanks!
