Here is a good basic stuffing &/or dressing recipe. It has mushrooms and nuts and all the other good things that one thinks of when you visualize a turkey roasting away.

The flavors of this stuffing were sensational. I made this as a casserole on the side. I added too much chicken stock, so I had to add more bread to soak it up. I will make this a a side dish during the year!
