If you are strapped for time like I usually am, I like quick but tasty recipes. This is both and is always praised at Thanksgiving. Enjoy!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a quick and easy stuffing recipe to prepare when in a pinch. Much of the seasoning comes from the herb stuffing mix, but the sage sausage and fresh veggies amp up the flavor. We really liked the addition of mushrooms. They give a nice texture to the dish. Butter helps with moisture and adds its wonderful flavor. Slightly different than cornbread stuffing/dressing and just as delicious.
