Really good and easy. I did not stuff as I just cooked a turkey breast so I moistened with chicken broth and baked in a dish. Read More

I'm giving this a three although my natural inclination is to give it a zero or 1 star because of the shortening. Use olive oil in this and it's four stars. Read More

Was quite impressed with this recipe...so simple and yet so good. Substituted chopped apple for the celery and used fresh sage instead of poultry seasoning. I baked it in a greased dish for about 30 minutes at 350 - no need to add any additional liquids. The second time I made this I baked individual servings of the dressing in a well-greased muffin tin. A fun garnish for a platter of sliced turkey... Read More

This is how I make my stuffing except I saute celery with onions in butter and poultry seasoning. Then add it to bread and mix. Add turkey or chicken broth for extra flavor. It is so tasty. Read More

This stuffing came out great! I used cubed homemade wheat bread butter in place of the shortening and chicken broth in place of the eggs. I stuffed an 8lb. chicken and had an 8x8 pan full of moist flavorful stuffing. Read More

This was a wonderful recipe with one exception I thought that 3tsp. of salt was way too much and made it too salty. Next time I make it I will only use half that amount. Otherwise the flavor was wonderful and the stuffing moist! Read More

May family loved the recipe I used 1 teaspoon less salt. I really do not care for the taste of salt the recipe was not harmed by using less salt. Since I cooked chicken pieces I baked the stuffing for 15 minutes at 350. Read More

I thought this recipe was very good. I made it today to practice before Thanksgiving! A little too salty and I will omit all the paprika next time. I don't like the coloring. I baked as is without any extra liquid for about 45 minutes. The oil from the onions was all it needed. Will definitely make for my Thanksgiving dinner. Read More
