Notes

The cast-iron makes cooking it so easy and delicious. If you don’t have a cast iron it’s no problem. You can easily use a pan of choice and then transfer the mixture into a casserole dish. Some people cover their stuffing with tinfoil while it bakes. I prefer just a little crunch mixed in with the soft delicious stuffing. It’s easy to play around with this recipe and use different breads, nuts, or other toppings. This is a thanksgiving staple in our house and we can’t get enough of it! And the best part is, it didn’t come out of a turkey butt – happy thanksgiving! 🥰🎃🍁
