Bread stuffing loaded with delicious goodies. Although you can use this to stuff a turkey, I make it in a casserole dish. The original recipe came from an Internet website, but I modified it. I made it ahead of time and heated it in the oven just before serving.

I don't think I would call this Ultimate. It was just missing something but it was a very good basic recipe. I can't put my finger on what it was but it just didn't WOW me.
