Or maybe this qualifies as a VINTAGE recipe. Simple and delicious, a long-time family favorite. about TURKEY!!! This recipe will also come in handy during the holidays! 1-08-08...I just made this with (leftover) turkey and it was very good. One caution...if made with crumbs instead of cubes, it has a different texture. I prefer using the cubes because it comes out more like stuffing with chunks of poultry in it. And we like our stuffing!

  • 2 tablespoons parsley

I made this for my DH and he enjoyed it with some mushroom gravy. I did use bread crumbs instead of the fresh bread. Thanks!
