This is my 3rd year using this recipe. I took other suggestions this year and baked it in a covered pan. I poured a can of chicken broth over it and also added some turkey drippings for a moist texture. It was great. I think we'll prepare it outside of the bird in the future.
The recipe makes enough stuffing for 10-12 people. People loved the meat stuffing, it was a great change. We added 1 can of chicken stock and baked it in trays (not stuffed in the turkey).
This was a very good stuffing; just old fashioned with no frills. Changes made are as follows --- used sage pork sausage instead of adding in the 2 tsp of the spice at the end --- only used 1 large granny smith apple ---* the onion used was very large, so only put 1/2 of it in --* doubled the amount of poultry seasoning --- * placed in a 9 x 13 pan and poured a 14 oz. can of chicken broth over the top to keep moist ---* covered w/aluminum foil and baked at 325 degree for 30 minutes, then upped the temp to 350, removed the foil, stirred it and baked for another 30 minutes. Stuffing came out very moist with a crunchy exterior, just the way I like it. Next time I might add in a bay leaf or 2 as well.
This was the first time I have made stuffing from scratch. It was mouth watering good! I added 1 cup of homemade chicken stock to the stuffing mixture and baked it in a tray. Also used day old white bread for the bread cubes. I will definitely make this again!
I've been coming back to this recipe for years. We love it.
This was my first time making my own stuffing, so I was a little nervous...but it came out great! I have no complaints. However, my husband said it tasted a little salty, so I will probably omit adding salt next time.
I love this recipe and so does my family. My Mom doesn't make stuffing anymore because she likes this better than her own! I make extra as dressing and moisten it with apple cider. YUMMY!!! Thank you Grandma Reid!
This recipe tastes excellent!
