I made this as a side for Thanksgiving. I loved it and so did the family. I used Libby's Pumpkin Cranberry Bread bread recipe from this site (bread is excellent) and the cranberries in the stuffing were tasty pretty and festive. Wonderful blend of seasonings. I took the suggestion to double the vegetables(not the butter) used regular sliced mushrooms and it was perfect. Thanks!

My husband was raving about this stuffing that I served at a dinner party. I had some extra pumpkin bread so I thought I'd give it a try! Wonderful. I didn't add the mushrooms but added chopped walnuts instead. I would definitely recommend at least doubling the veggies added and adding a bit more chicken broth (then again I like my stuffing a bit "mushy"). I served this with Apple Rosemary Pork Tenderloin a great pairing!

This was rated by ALL my family members as THE BEST STUFFING THEY HAD EVER HAD! We enjoyed it for Thanksgiving this year. I had made the pumpkin bread IV recipe from this site the night before (it is also awesome - I substituted unsweetened appleauce for all the oil and it was so delicious!

I made this for an herb competition at the 2004 Iowa State Fair - I took 1st place - it was a huge hit with the judges and other competitors!! I substituted baby portabellas for cremini mushrooms and added a half cup of coarsely chopped and toasted pecans - YUMMY!!!!!!!

This is the BEST dressing I have ever had. Using pumpkin bread was ingenious! I now want to try the same recipe using cranberry nut bread. I do suggest using a bit less allspice in the bread recipe though and I do think regular mushrooms would be just a good.

This recipe is fantastic! The savory and sweet mix is wonderful and I get upset when my guests eat it all (no leftovers for me). It surprisingly freezes well. I have been recruited to make this for my friend's yearly Canadian Thanksgiving. I decided to change it up a little bit. I cut the fat by only using 2 tbsp of butter and two cups of vegetable broth. Still tasted wonderful. I also couldn't find any tarragon at the store so I substituted sage.

Yum Yum Yum....this is an awesome recipe and I'm surprised with the unanimously good reviews that more people haven't checked it out (or at least reviewed it). Do yourself a favor.....I know it sounds different (and it IS) but it comes out tasting GREAT and not the "weird" different you might think. This is an interesting and different stuffing. I encourage you to try it!!

Once a month we get together with my sister's family and have a cooking night with a theme. This most recent theme was pumpkin. This recipe intrigued me so I just had to make it. I used Pumpkin Bread IV from this site. I made a few minor changes all because it was what I had on hand or I couldn't find it in the store. I used white onion instead of red white mushrooms instead of crimini and used all dried herbs. I also added more chicken broth since my bread cubes were really hard. The dish was sweet and savory definitely different but very good. I would like to make again.
