"This is a very tasty stuffing. I used butternut squash in place of sweet potatoes and about a cup of broth."

"We loved this stuffing! This stuffing will be a go to recipe of mine for years! I think that this is a great base stuffing for whatever fun ingredients you enjoy in stuffing. You could add fresh cranberries, sausage, mushroom, oysters, bacon, Brussels sprouts, etc... I added cranberries to the recipe this time. I'm looking forward to playing around with more extras next time. Here's a couple of small adjustments that I made: I changed the 1/2 cup of broth to 1 full cup. And, I substituted Corn bread cubes for regular bread cubes.

Delicious! Thank you for sharing!"
