You Can have your Stuffing and enjoy it too, without the whole, actual “stuffing” aspect.
Seriously why do we do the things we do sometimes?
Admittedly, I’ve had both, and I’m pretty sure most of you have had, well, just the other–BUTT–thats why you’re here. (see what I did there) This recipe doesn’t just taste good, it taste BETTER than traditional style of stuffing.
I get it, How can it be “stuffing if theres no stuffing?” And to that I have to really question whether taking that portion of the process out affects he outcome of “Amazing taste and flavor.” Traditionally speaking, we need to change at some point and think differently even if we want to still call stuffing, “stuffing” when theres no actual stuffing bread into a dead body.
“Tradition run in our families because disease runs in our families”
So, think differently, I mean, how many years do you want to do the same thing every year? Even if you hold pride to the weird act of making stuffing, why not try something, just one year out of the many, differently.
I would also advise you to literally double, or triple this recipe because you’re going to regret not doing it when its gone! This recipe has stood the test of time, many mouths, and lots of feedback-your going to like the way it tastes!
As always Enjoy and let me know what you think!
