Stuffing of Champions

Rated as 4.68 out of 5 Stars

"This is a great stuffing recipe that is very easy and fun for the whole family. My mom used to include my sisters and I in the breaking of the bread. It has become a great family tradition. Stuffing not used in the bird may be cooked with the gizzards. For variety, mix in a pound of sausage or raisins when cooking the onions and celery."
