    Since it start with a stuffing mix it is not Hungarian. So in my opinion it is definitely miss leading. We didn't have stuffing mix in Hungary. She probably got the recipe from someone or off of a box and wrote it by hand. I will be searching for an actual Hungarian recipe. Often you find marjoram as one of the ingredients. Though family recipes can very widely.
