I used my MeMau's cornbread recipe and venison sauasage as alterations for this recipe and my first Thanksgiving was a total success. I was heartbroken to see this stuffing be the first of the leftovers eaten up - and I don't even generally like stuffing! This recipe is definitely staying around as a family tradition!
