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.
