This stuffing is my mom's favorite, So its definately a classic. Plus my daughters "SIMPLE SECRET" version. She says she has been asked for her secret, I am now Sharing her version also. Very easy to Make, and can be used with any dinner as a side dish doesn't have to be TURKEY, can be pork chicken or beef. Only difference is I left out her giblets.

    SIMPLE TIP and Version: My Daughters "simple version", Her secret: Use my version above, sauteing the celery and onions in the butter, (except omitEGGS & bread crumbs) add "stove Top" in stead of bread. Now, Follow the stove top directions on the Pkg at this point. Boiling water or Broth, TOSS Just to Incorporate, FLUFF (Do not Over MIX) with a Long Tined Fork as above. 2 Pkg stove stop and you'll be amazed how good this is. She has been asked for her recipe. . . Enjoy both versions. Makes a large Batch. you can use 1/2 the recipe for a family of 4-5.
