Step 1

Combine ingredients by tossing lightly and place in an oblong baking pan, adding only as much liquid to make it damp or as wet as you like it (I like mine wet).

Step 2

Cover with foil and bake 45 minutes.

Step 3

Uncover and bake 15 minutes more.

Step 4

Or lightly stuff into a turkey or chicken cavity- do not overpack, as extra can be baked outside the bird.

Step 5

Or pack into the slit side of a thick pork chop, securing that opening with a toothpick, layering the rest of the stuffing on the bottom of a greased baking dish and laying the chops on top (you bake this until the chops are done at about 375F).

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I made this in a casserole dish and followed the recipe to the letter. We found the mixture of herbs to be a little odd together. also, we are used to either gizzards or sausage in our dressing and found this rather plain without it. Probably won't make it again.
