ROSE MARY'S SALAD CROUTON STUFFING

I created this stuffing to go with a pork Roast Dinner. My husband had a 12 hour day of work & driving & I wanted to make a comforting meal for him once he arrived home.

This meal did not disappoint, Instead of serving unsweetened applesauce WITH the pork Roast, I ADDED it TO the stuffing, & it created just the right amount of flavor to compliment the pork Roast, I served a Broccoli Slaw & Mashed Potatoes & Cranberry Sauce to go with it.

I had planned to make an extra veggie but he said there were enough additional veggies in the Stuffing. Dinner REALLY PLEASED MY HUSBAND & me too.
