Excellent as is but did change a few things, first I reduced the water by 1 cup and added 1 cup of chicken broth to the dressing mix I added 1/2 cup saut?ed sweet corn & 1/2 cup chopped sauted mushrooms, used diced garlic colves instead of garlic powder, added 1 1/2 tablespoons of poultry seasoning. I hate it when someone rates my recipes and then changes everything in it, but this was a really good recipe without the changes, I just thought these few changes might add to the dish. Next time I may add a few more shrimp just because I love shrimp. Idea, Garnish with some flamed grilled oysters or use Crawdads instead of shrimp. I will be sharing this recipe and making it again. Great for stuffed pork chops, stuffed chicken breast, stuffed flounder, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Just a perfect dressing.
