Reviews for "Everything" Stuffing
"I made this recipe for Thanksgiving. It was really great. I did used regular mushrooms. Received several compliments. Will make again."
"I used this recipe as a guide to make my own stuffing in the crockpot. It came out perfect and was delicious. One tip, place a single dry paper towel over the top of the crock, do not let it touch the food or fall in, then place the lid on top of the paper towel essentially locking it to the rim. The steam will rise to the lid and fall on the towel instead of back into the stuffing so it doesn't get too mushy. Toss the paper towel when it's done."
"My family enjoyed it but I thought that it was way too salty. Most of those at the table with me didn't see it that way, though, probably because they like salt and I seldom add it to anything I eat, including eggs."
"I make this stuffing several times throughout the year not just for holidays. My family loves it. I never tried it with chestnut but I have to toast extra pecans because my kids tend to grab them as they are walking by. Maybe cornbread stuffing is only sold in the north east since people never heard of it. Even Stove Top sells a corn bread version. Look in that section. Thank you for sharing this recipe."
"Good stuffing - didn't use so many mushrooms for we don't care for them too much. FYI Pepperidge Farms makes a cornbread stuffing in bags just like the other flavors so perhaps that is what they are referring to in this recipe. Would be nice if the poster, Bette Votral, would comment on that."
"This recipe was in your Nov.,2009 magazine. I have made it every year since and my family loves it."
"So good I have made this stuffing for 4 years now. Everyone loves it! I love that it cooks in the slow cooker, saving oven space."
"I first tried this stuffing 3 years ago. My family LOVES it, and requests that I make it every Thanksgiving. I do add the extra broth to keep moist. Make sure to not to stir or "fuss" with it too much or it will become mushy. It's nicer when the bread cubes hold their shape."
"I didn't like the taste and it was dry. Maybe because I am used to sweet white bread stuffing.?"
