    I substituted chicken stock for the unsweetened apple juice and a teaspoon of dried parsley for the tablespoon of fresh. I served it as part of my Mother's Day dinner with cinnamon rubbed cornish hens. Everyone really liked the combination. - 5/13/12

    I made this for Thanksgiving exactly as shown except I used fresh apple cider in place of the apple juice. Everyone LOVED it and no one even touched the stove top dressing I had made also. This is our new Holiday dressing.

    To Garianna1, I suspect the sodium count is so high because of the herb seasoned stuffing mix plus the added 1/4 tsp salt. Skim the stuffing mix and make your own. Dry whole wheat bread for a couple of days, turning once and add your own herbs such as dried sage, fresh parsley, thyme, etc. - 11/19/13
