    I make this same stuffing and because of the lack of space in the oven, I use my crockpot. I cook it between 2-4 hours depending on single or double batch on low heat. Make sure you spray your crockpot with a cooking spray. It comes out moist and piping hot! - 12/2/08

    My mother always made the stuffing for Thanksgiving. She also used two sticks of butter. This year I made the stuffing without all the fat. I also did not use the mushroom, my sons do not like their texture. It was still a great recipe.
    Thanks! - 11/27/08

  • I like this, whenever I make my stuffing instead of mushroom I would add chicken liver. Wash liver & clean with lemon, soak in fresh lemon juice with garlic, schellot and pepper for 1.5 hours before cooking it in a skillet. Them add it to stuffing mix, stuff into turkey & bake. This is Delicious - 11/19/09

    the chicken broth probably added all that sodium. I made my own and didn't add salt. Don't know what the count is on it now. - 3/23/09

    This just like I make mine except I don't put in the carrots and mushrooms. My son has a problem with egg allergies. I found out eggs in the stuffing really is not necessary. - 11/26/08
