I've made this for the last 7 or 8 years in a row on Thanksgiving and it is a showstopper, and better than the turkey itself. It's seriously the best thing on the table and the one side everyone requests. We have 7 adults & 2 children, so I cut this recipe in half and with everything else we prepare, we have more than enough for everyone- and for leftover day. I make it exactly according to the recipe and it turns out perfect- If you use the amount of mushrooms it calls for, the juices keep the stuffing moist. And to keep costs down, I generally use half wild mushrooms and half regular.
