Reviews for Cranberry Pecan Stuffing
"I have been making this stuffing for the last 4 years and the family loves it. Moist, great flavor."
"Fixed a roast pork, butternut squash and this stuffing. Invited friends and everyone went nuts over it. Even my fussy eater loved this recipe. Thank you."
"We liked this stuffing. I adjusted the seasonings slightly to suit our taste. Another Taste of Home recipe suggested cooking in a crock pot, 3-4 hours on low. That works well for this recipe, too. My second batch is cooking right now!"
"Our family isn't a big fan of stuffing either, but this recipe rocks! The cranberries, pecans, sausage and apples combined to give the stuffing a little extra zip. If you're looking for comfort food, this stuffing is it."
"I didn't add the pecans because myself nor my family like nuts but even so, no one liked this stuffing, other than my one year old but she'll eat anything. My husband wouldn't even take a second bite, he is just not fond of sweet stuffing and prefers the savory instead. I will NOT be making this again and am still on the look out for a stuffing recipe that will wow everyone."
