I have been making this stuffing since it appeared in the magazine in 2006. It is the classic best.

Hard to improve upon this classic stuffing recipe! From my Mom's (and everyone's mom's) red-checkered cookbook :)

The flavor of this dressing is really, really good - however, it needs a lot more chicken broth than called for in the recipe.  Mine was pretty dry.  Would make it again, but add more broth.
