"I have had this stuffing every Thanksgiving my entire life (26 years, that's a lot of stuffing!), it is truly a family tradition. Trust me, this is the best stuffing you'll ever taste! Thanks goes out to my Nana, the best cook in the Midwest!" — KBROWN26

day-old bread, cubed
My husband and I had all my family to our house for Thanksgiving this year. It was the first timeI had ever cooked an entire turkey with dressing and gravy. So this was a big deal. Everything had to be perfect. I came across this recipe and thought I'd try it out. IT WAS AWESOME!! It was very easy and didn't take a long time to prepare. The chestnuts really add a nice flavor texture to the stuffing. And it goes GREAT with gravy. We will be adding this to our repetoire of family recipes to be used on Thanksgivings and Christmas' in our homes from here on out. Thank you for sharing!
Dry and tasteless. Perhaps 1 loaf of bread would have worked.
Yum! The flavor of this stuffing is so good, I can't wait to make it for Christmas! The next time I make it though, I will only use one loaf of bread so it is a little bit more moist.
I submitted this recipe 4 years ago and thought I'd come back and see how people have liked it. Thank you for all the nice feedback! I'll be sure to pass this along to my Nana, she'll be thrilled. From what I gather this recipe may call for too much bread. I am going to try it this year with one loaf and see how it goes (it also depends on the size of your bird). I hope you try this with your family, they're sure to love it like my family does! Honestly I look more forward to this stuffing than the turkey!! Thanks again and happy Thanksgiving!
I don't remember if I wrote last year after Thanksgiving, but this stuffing is amazing. My 90 yr old mother-in-law said it was the best stuffing she has ever had, and she is never making stuffing again, because "mine" was so good. Quite a complliment from an Italian mother-in-law!!! I'm making it again this year, can't wait. thanks.
Great recipe! This was my first time making stuffing, and this was fairly easy. Tastes great! Thanks!
Maybe I read something incorrectly, but I had to use half the bread that was called for in the recipe. What I did make was very good, though.
Great recipe. Everybody in my family loved the stuffing. Thanks!
