“I've made this stuffing for my family every Christmas and Thanksgiving for about seven years. I keep wanting to try a new one, but they keep saying this one is really good. It's not low calorie or low fat, but I only make it twice a year, so I guess that's ok. I was trying to reproduce the stuffing my mom used to make when I dreamed this one up. I didn't get it quite right, but once I hit this one, they told me to stop trying. Vary the amount of ingredients as desired (the quantities change a little every time based on the size of the bird, though in reality I just add or subtract bread as required). The recipe below will stuff a 15 lb turkey. I don't know what it turns out like in a casserole because I still stuff the turkey proper.”
