Meet the Cook: If you're looking for a different stuffing this year, you'll find these balls are both tasty and easy to prepare. Cooking has been a favorite pastime of mine since my husband and I retired (I used to operate a beauty salon). We had 80 acres and kept 2-1/2 of them to build our new country home on. -Bernadine Dirmeyer, Harpster, Ohio

"I made this recipe a couple of years ago. Make sure to crush the croutons. If to big of chunks are left they will fall apart.

Other that that everyone enjoyed them. Great addition because you always run out of stuffing first."
