I am generally not a fan of stuffing. I cook Thanksgiving dinner every year and am always looking for a recipe that will please everyone. I think I may have found it. Hubby really liked it too. Love the pecans and cranberries. Looks pretty on the plate next to the turkey. Well done, super easy too.
