I will start by saying I am a great cook and I usually don't stray from my Mother's or Grandmother's recipes, I now remember why. I REALLY disliked this recipe. The tastes did not compliment each other as I thought they would. I'm not a big fan of boxed stuffing mix, maybe this was a large part of why I disliked the dish. Anyway, I have leftovers and they've been sitting for 3 days now. None of my sons will touch them and my husband wouldn't even try this the first time around.
