Yum, this is a fantastic stuffing. I used portobello mushrooms and they had a fantastic taste and texture. I'd definitely have it again.

Sorry but didn't care for this one. I have been cooking for over 25 years and this was not something I would make again. I was able to pour some homemade turkey gravy on it and made it better tasting.

Great stuffing! I used packaged bread cubes and made as directed. I used some to stuff a turkey and it was really tasty. DH loves stuffing so I always make a lot and he had 3 helpings for dinner, lol. Thanks once more Kit for another great recipe. Made for 1-2-3 Tag.
