I kid you not. I could and would eat this every single day for an entire month if given the chance. The flavors will rock your world.

Last year was my first year with this stuffing. I made it not once, not twice, but three times before actual Thanksgiving. And each and every time I made it, it was devoured. All of the herbs and seasonings work perfectly together to create an out of this world stuffing. The toasted bread cubes and nice and golden brown and then soaked with the buttery herb mixture and then baked until perfection.  I’ve made a few tweaks this year and it brings a smile to my face every time I take a bite! I wish Thanksgiving was once a month so I had an excuse to make stuffing more frequently. In fact, I don’t know why I don’t make stuffing more frequently, especially this once, because it’s life changing. Cross my heart. Make it. You’ll thank me later.

    What a great recipe. I give it 5 stars. I intended to use the test kitchen recipe but that site insisted I log in, and I was not in the mood. I found this recipe and it is off the charts delicious. I have this sneaking suspicion that if the Test Kitchen could get their hands on it they would love it. as I do…. well done

    Made this for yesterday’s Thanksgiving dinner and it was AMAZING! The cheese that got to the bottom was perfectly crisp and the herbs were out of this world delicious!

    I have been making this recipe for a few years. It is my favorite stuffing recipe and always gets rave reviews. I shopped for it off of memory this year and was surprised to find once I got home that it no longer included mushrooms. In my opinion, they are the best part. I added them anyway and it was delicious as usual but when did they get removed and why? It kind of had me questioning my sanity. We’re they ever there to begin with? Did I only dream it?
