"This is my Grandmom's recipe - she taught me when I was small how to make it. I guess that makes it a family recipe, although I have changed it a little to fit my style of cooking. You may decide to change something or leave it. Enjoy!!! Has cranberries and nuts in it too!" — CJ Hamilton

First time ever making stuffing and this recipe was great. I did change some stuff. You have to add celery.(Do not put celery seed in.) Make sure that you saute the onions and celery. I did not put walnuts or the orange in. I also put 6 squares of butter on top when it went in the oven. Cook time was about 30-35 min. You have to try it!!!!!!!
Didn't really like it. Not sweet enough. The cranberries made it really sour. It was too chunky after everything was put together. Probably won't make this again without tweeking it quite a bit.
I found this recipe because I had some fresh cranberries to use up. I made it to serve with some baked chicken breasts. I did a couple things differently. I used turkey italian sausage and drained that then in the same pan softened the onions and garlic and added some celery (sorry just not dressing to me without it). I don't think the onion, garlic and celery would of been soft enough for me just cooked in the oven for the 25 min. and nothing turns me off more than the crunch of raw onion in something like this. I left out the celery seed, used pecans in lieu of walnuts and only added some orange zest. This is great and went well with my chicken.
This stuffing recipe is delicious. I left out the orange and walnuts, and used sauteed celery and onion instead of the celery seed. Delicious!
What a great recipe best stuffing I ever had and easy too. I didnt put in the cranberries or walnuts or orange and I sauted onions and celery in a stick of butter instead of celery seed and I added 2 lbs of sausage crumbled and fried up it was a real sausage stuffing that everyone loved I dont have any left!!
This is so yummy! I love the combination of flavors. I didn't follow the recipe exactly because I didn't have fresh herbs and my husband doesn't like walnuts but I don't think that altered the flavor much. I really encourage everyone to try this. I made this for Thanksgiving and Christmas last year and will be making it again this year
my Dad used to put sausage in the stuffing all the time, so yummy!
LOVE this dressing! Like other reviewers, I find that this recipe is very versatile, so play with substitutions to make it work for your preferences.
For example, my family prefers dried cranberries to fresh, and they also like dried tart cherries, currants, and sultanas. We sometimes sub pecans for walnuts.
However, I do not modify the spices. And I think it is essential that you include the fresh orange. Once, I made the recipe and didn't have an orange, so I used a few tablespoons of oj. The result was okay, but not as interesting as the essence you get from the orange rind's oil.
My favorite bread for this recipe is multi grain. Whole wheat is also good, but multi grain provides a better texture. Although I enjoy white bread for some dressings, I don't think it's very good for this recipe.
