This is the type of stuffing I was raised on! Mom was out of town & could not be reached - I needed her recipe for stuffing. This is almost identical & turned out perfect. Minimal time - Maximum taste! Thanks, Mr. Bray! You saved the day! This one is "my" stuffing now, too!

I don't know if I'll try this again. It sounds like a good concept, but it needs to be played with. The seasoning wasn't quite right, either. Sorry Jim, I'll be hunting for another cornbread stuffing recipe. :(

Delicious! This will become the recipe I use every Thanksgiving. Texture and taste were very good.

Wonderful and easy. Always did the box stuffing in the past, never again! Did not have chestnuts, but this a recipe where you can add or subtract and still great taste.
