"I have been making this recipe since my 33 year old daughter decided to become a vegetarian at 13!!! This one change to our traditional Thanksgiving dinner menu (I started out using sausage in my stuffing as a new bride) means that there was always plenty for her to choose from and the rest of the family never missed the old recipe!!"

"I was looking for a quick and easy alternative to boxed stuffing but didn't want the hassle of spending an hour making one from scratch. I used honeycrisp apples. Everyone raved about how awesome the stuffing was and I was impressed myself. I am definitely putting this in my recipe book! Thanks for sharing!"

"I make a recipe very similar to this, but with less fat & no saturated fat.

Instead of sauteeing the veggies in butter, use fat-free chicken broth. It adds depth of flavor."

"I sauted the ingredent as directed, but when the ingredents were tender, I added the mix and stired the contents into the sauted mixture till I felt the stuffing mixture was taking on a suted favor, I then transferred to my slow cooker and added chicken stock in place of water and cooked on high for 1 hour on hign, tasting to make sure it was cooked and absorbed all the ingredents."
