"I'm giving this 5 stars for the great idea...to bake stuffing in muffin cups. I adore stuffing, and I think this will be a great way to make extra at Thanksgiving, and freeze it in convenient serving sizes to enjoy later as a snack or sidedish. I always use pecans in my stuffing, so am glad to see that in the recipe too."

"What a great idea! I cut the recipe to fit into 3 paper-lined muffin cups. I made it with Marcona almonds and onions. Delicious! I will make this for Thanksgiving."
