Cranberry Sage Stuffing on the Side

"This is a lovely side dish that goes well with poultry, pork or almost any thing. It is sometimes nice to have two different stuffings for different tastes If you are going to double this recipe do not double the sage or it will overpower just add a little bit more than the original recipe"

    Delicious Bergy! Prepared it on Christmas Eve and enjoyed it with our turkey on Christmas day. I used craisins, dried sage and brown sugar. Looked great on our buffet table too, thanks Bergy for another winner.

    We had an early Christmas dinner last night with some of the family. I made a half recipe of this delicious stuffing and filled our very small turkey. It was easy to make, colourful to look at, and delicious to eat. I'm still interested in trying it cooked seperately in the oven, but it worked fantastically the other way.Thanks Bergy for yet another wonderful recipe we'll be making again

    I've made this for the past 3 years for our Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve potluck. Still don't have any leftovers! This year, we had to bump it up and quadruple the recipe. I've used fresh, frozen and dried cranberries at different times and it is awesome. I do add some carrots, half as many carrots as celery and it adds a sweetness along with color. Love this one.

    I love the tart pop of the cranberries against the soft taste of the bread and sage. Tasty. I will definitely do variations.....apples, nuts, more spices. This will become a standard base.

    This is my second time making this stuffing and I love it! I like apple in place of the celery and this time had to use lemon zest instead of orange because that's all I have, but it smells delicious once again. Thank you for posting :)

    I added half as many carrots as celery to the saute. Have used dried, fresh and frozen cranberries, all with great results.


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
