This is an original recipe for those who like trying something a little different. Using cranberries, walnuts, and golden raisins, you can make a stuffing that sweetens your Thanksgiving meal! I'm not actually sure how well it does when baked in a turkey. I find that putting stuffing in the bird tends to dry the bird.

This was very good. The combination of flavors was excellent. I added some chopped onion and celery also. If you like your stuffing to really stick together than you need to double the butter sauce and bake it in a smaller baking dish. I personally like my stuffing broken apart it gives it a lighter flavor. Thanks for posting!! Read More

I made this as written to go with cornish game hens for a weeknight supper - it was sweet but really tasty. I think it would be great with ham for a brunch - it was sweeter than a traditional stuffing and very light. Didn't hold together like 'dressing' stuffing. Read More

I really liked this but it wasn't a big hit with the crowd because it is so different then traditional stuffing. Changes we made: fresh cranberries cut in half and doubled the sugar (won't do this next time) and butter. Read More

I made this recipe a few years ago for Thanksgiving. I was a little nervous...I didn't know if people would like it since it isn't your typical stuffing. Great news...it was a hit! Definitely a sweeter flavor but I loved it! Read More

I did not like this stuffing very much. The flavors were off and it was very dry to me. Read More
