  1. Prepare stuffing according to package directions, and set aside in a large bowl.

Great stuffing! However, you do not need all of the water the recipe calls for. I used some chicken stock. Very good!

Found this Turkey and Stuffing reciepe, just like my late MeMaw made it. I was very excited about the way it tasted.

Used Savory instead of Sage and didn't boil onions. Just breadcrumbs, savory and onion. Turned out great and fell apart (In a good way!)

Everything from the stuffing to the candied yams was greatly prepared the way you wrote...Thank you
