This certainly is a nice change from using the bread cubes (although I do like that version as well)! Gotta admit, too, that the mint was an interesting addition, & that's something that I usually omit when making any recipe that includes it! Thanks for this wonderful change of pace when it comes to stuffing! [Made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC tag]
