This for me has always been a favorite at Thanksgiving, and this year I wanted to try something new so I asked my dear sister-in-law for some assistance. She provided me with a beautiful and tasty recipe, and it is by far the best stuffing I’ve ever had. I don’t know that I’ll be able to make anything else from now on! Even the Dearliest, who informed me before the fact that stuffing was on the bottom of his list, declared it a little more than tolerable.
I halved the recipe TW gave me, and I probably should’ve quartered it because this still made a LOT. Also, I didn’t have time to make my bread, so I ended up using a bag of bread cubes from a store bought stuffing mix.
