"Excellent recipe! It did not, however, contain "everything!" After tossing in a hand full of dried cranberries, I decided it had "everything." easy recipe, remarkably delicious, and our new favorite. Because of the pre-seasoned stuffing cubes, I omitted the salt and used a low-sodium chicken broth. It was not too salty with those changes."

"AbuelaMary you can make this in the oven in a casserole dish. Cook for about 1 hour at 350. I haven't made this yet but I am a cook so give it a try"

"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."

"How can you make this receipe if you don't have a "slow cooker"? Sounds delicious but I don't want to have to go out and buy a slow cooker I can't rate it yet as I haven't made it yet. Answer appreciated. Thank You"

"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."
