This was a BIG hit! I did make a few changes, however. I used real butter instead of margarine and I forgot to buy the dried pears so I used 1/2 of a fresh, hard pear (peeled and diced) instead. Cooked it for several hours in the crockpot with the cornish game hens. My husband raved about it. I was amazed at how it smelled and tasted like it had bread in it like a traditional stuffing. I think this is our choice for Thanksgiving from now on! Thanks for the recipe.
a perfect compliment to the duck we made for the holidays! drizzled some of the juices from the duck in the dish part way through the baking to add moisture. dried pears were way too expensive, so i subbed extra dried apple and some golden raisins. will definitely make this recipe again.
Made this for christmas, everyone loved it. This will be the only stuffing i make for christmas. Thanks!
What can I say but yum, yum, yum! I used part of this as the stuffing in the duck layer of my Turducken and baked the rest in a loaf pan. I followed the directions exactly. I usually try a new recipe every year for the stuffing but why mess with perfection. This will be the recipe I use from now on.
