Wild Rice Stuffing

Since trying this stuffing recipe from my sister, I haven't made any other kind. It's so moist and tasty. When a big bowlful starts circulating around the table, happy holiday smiles get even bigger! —Connie Olson, Green River, Wyoming

    Do not bake too long--tends to be dry.

    Always get rave reviews with this side dish at our Thanksgiving table (made without the giblets). Even people that don't like stuffing go back for seconds with this recipe.

    I skip the first step with the turkey giblets. I do not use them at all. The recipe is very easy to make and tastes very good. I probably make it 4 times a year with or without turkey as the main course. For Thanksgiving, I usually make it with Herbed Turkey Breast, another great recipe from Taste of Home.

    To suit our tastes, I skip the first part with the giblets and cube 3/4 of a loaf of white bread instead of the crushed seasoned stuffing. In my opinion, there is enough salt with the broth and long grain and wild rice mix.
