This recipe isn't at all difficult even though it does take a little time and work. I think it is well worth it. It's a great recipe for a Romantic Dinner, and fit for a King. I serve it with Wild Rice and a Salad. I also double the stuffing mixture as well as the gravy mixture so we can dip every bite!
