I had never made stuffing before from scratch... I was raised on Stove Top! However my partner wanted me to make it since she was raised with it. I said I wasn't going to make anything like her mother's because she would compare it. I found this and it is fantastic. Over the last few years I've tweaked it a bit more to make it "mine" and use mushrooms as well when cooking the onion & celery. They love it so much they ask for two batches! But I do leave out the cranberries as well as another reviewer.
This is my go-to stuffing every year, along with Kittencal's buttermilk brine. I swear if it wasn't for kittencal making this so easy, my holidays would be such disasters. This stuffing gets RAVE reviews every single time I make it. I've tweaked it so that I instead use fresh chopped sage, thyme and rosemary instead of just "poultry seasoning". Absolute WINNER.
This is very good. I like it best without the cranberries.
