    A thirty year old recipe that just seems to get better with time. I went to visit my daughter 3000 miles away and I still had to make the stuffing for dinner.

      Excellent recipe! This was the first I made stuffing from scratch and needless to say I was very impressed with myself!! The flavors were so good. I was worried about using sausage, since I'm not really a pork person but it was perfect. My husband loved it. In fact, he thought it was better than his mom's! Can't get any better than that.

      i used all corn stuffing from a bag. turned out great except i do have to agree w/ others that since i didn't stuff it into a turkey i should have added a little more liquid. other than that will definitely make this again. thanks!

      This is an excellent recipe for stuffing. I made it for Thanksgiving and I was pleased with the results. I received several compliments from my family members about how good this was. I used homemade cornbread cubes and toasted french bread cubes as the bread. I omitted the mushrooms, eggs, and salt and used only 1/2 tsp pepper. We like our stuffing on the dry side so I also omitted the eggs as well. I assembled the stuffing the day before and baked it on Thanksgiving day. I noticed that the spices were more dominant the second day and the stuffing was a tad more moist. I thought I should mention that just in case anyone makes this stuffing the day ahead like I did. Thanks crazymom for sharing this recipe. It's a great recipe so I will use it again.
