  • “This stuffing recipe is very good and it is very moist!It’s a keeper for my family”

  • “Ooey gooey just like I like my stuffing.This was a hit on Thanksgiving even though — sacrilidge — cooked entirely outside of the bird.I bought a couple of loafs of cheap white bread, which worked perfectly.There was enough left over to make turkey sandwiches on white bread with gravy afterwards ;-)I might have just sworn off all “fancy” stuffings for good.”

  • “Great stuffing recipe! I halved all fresh ingredients and used 2 tsp dried summer savoury as I did not have fresh sage and 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper.I had enough to stuff a small 3 pound chicken and baked the balance in a dish.Nice and moist, a good recipe!Thanks……”

  • “Since I feel grateful all year, I decided to make a Thanksgiving dinner in April, using this dressing for my bird. I cut some honey wheat bread into tiny cubes and halved the recipe. Instead of cooking in the small turkey, I placed the stuffing into my crockpot, drizzling a few tablespoons of chicken broth over the top for good measure, set it on low and let it cook for 4 hours.The smell while it was cooking was sooooo delicious!Much to my delight, it tasted as good as it smelled with just the perfect texture.The bread cubes were so moist, but not a bit mushy, filled with the flavor of the herbs, mushrooms and onions.One of the best parts of Thanksgiving dinner are the leftovers and we are looking forward to more dressing! This is a good one Bergy…thanks.”

  • “This stuffing was prepared and cooked outside the turkey andtwo chickens.Icooked Country Lady’s recipe #57211, Roast Chicken with Vegetables, and what better way to serve stuffing than one prepared for two chickens.Chickens were cooked as well as turkey because I wanted to accommodateguests who are not fond of turkey.(The turkey was evelyn/athens Roast Turkey with Maple-Pepper Butter #106239. ) Juices and cranberriesfrom the turkey were transferred to the chicken broth,prior to placing the stuffing in the casserole.Your recipe is perfect, for all the birds, Bergy, and one which I shall use again.Because the stuffing for the chickens was cooked outside the birds, in a casserole,I used chicken broth to moisten the dressing, and cooked it “covered”The result was a very tender moist and flavourful dressing which required no additional gravy… Of course people do use gravy don’t they?The stuffing was served alongside the chickens, with Aroostook’s Giblet Gravy for 12,#27962.There was no end to compliments for your contribution to my Designer Thanksgiving Dinner,thank you for sharing, Bergy.”
