This is just ONE of the stuffings I’ll be eating this Christmas. My mom makes three kinds of stuffing. That’s right, three different kinds. There’s a slight tendency in my family to ‘over-do’ things – especially when it comes to food. Not only does this recipe go well with a turkey dinner, it’s also deliciously paired with seafood of any kind, and generally a fun alternative to the traditional potato or plain rice side dish.
