“Not to be confused with a "stuffing" this recipe stands on its own. This was made every year by MaMere as a side to the turkey on Thanksgiving. The leftovers (she made sure there were leftovers as she baked about 3 casseroles of this) were enjoyed by anyone who wished for them! It is a wonderful, warm, comfort food that stirs up great memories.”
