"This is one of my favorite stuffings for that Christmas Turkey. It is moist and not too solid. When you stuff the bird do not pack it too tightly. Makes 10 cups"

No special items needed.



This stuffing was perfect with your turkey recipe (#11294). I used sourdough bread but didn't measure the amount I used (about 1/2 a loaf). So easy and so good! Thanks for sharing!

This stuffing recipe was a big hit here. I made it using gluten free white bread and used dried herbs instead (1 tablespoon each) and it worked perfectly. The mushrooms are very nice in here!!
