Simple Cranberry and Toasted Walnut Stuffing

"This recipe was in the latest (Fall 2005) edition of Kraft What's cooking. It looks so tempting and is so easy to make. Prep time 5 minutes. Make your traditional stuffing and have this as a lighter side dish. I made this stuffing for Thanksgiving--made it in the morning and popped it in the oven 35 minutes (350°F) before serving--everyone raved about it"

    Went to husband's work's Christmas Party a couple nights ago, at Duffy's Bar & Grill in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. They had a chicken stuffed with a stuffing mix, that I deemed stuffing with cranberries and walnuts. I went to their website, and it, in deed WAS a cranberry walnut stuffing. So I started searching for a recipe to make my own, for the kids to all get to try. I came across yours and after I buy the cranberries, and toast the walnuts, I will be making this!! Thank you for the recipe! I hope it turns out as good as everyone says it is!

    This was good. I wouldn't want it every time but it's a nice change from plain old stuffing. I ran across this on the Kraft web site and it says to just add the cranberries and walnuts after making the stuffing. I think I like it better this way. The cranberries get a chance to soften in the boiling water. I used corn bread stuffing mix. Thanks for the recipe.

    This was very tasty! I used whole wheat Stove Top and had exactly 1/2 cup dried cherries in the cupboard so used them instead of the cranberries. Left out the walnuts as I don't much care for nuts. Served with <a href="/90771">Baked Pork Chops and Apples</a>. Made a most excellent meal! Thanks for the recipe Bergy!

    I counldn't resist this one either! However, I was out of boxed stuffing mix, so instead, I just ripped up about 5 cups of bread, and used a cup of chicken broth for in place of the water. It turned out beautifully.
