"This is the easy way to make stuffing for turkey dinner or other poultry. The recipe can be cut in half for a smaller amount for the family. Or make it 4 times for 100. It works for any amount and is delicious. Any kind of bread can be used but the whole wheat gives it a lovely nutty flavour."

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I have never made stuffing outside of the bird so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. This is delicious. I served this at a Thanksgiving Pot-Luck dinner and it was engulfed in no time. Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag Game.
