Not to be confused with a "stuffing" this recipe stands on its own. This was made every year by MaMere as a side to the turkey on Thanksgiving. The leftovers (she made sure there were leftovers as she baked about 3 casseroles of this) were enjoyed by anyone who wished for them! It is a wonderful, warm, comfort food that stirs up great memories.

Very good. This was so easy to make. I used only 1 tbsp poultry seasoning and added a handful of chopped, fresh parsley. I served it as a side dish, (not for a turkey). I'll make this again and definitely will try it with poultry. Wasn't sure what size pan to bake it in so I used an 11x7 casserole dish.
