I attempted making my first-ever stuffing the other night, and it tasted great, but the texture was a bit off (it ended up more like a bread pudding). So, I decided to ask my family members for some secrets and tips.
Below is the recipe for stuffing attempt number two, which I made with the expert help of my Gram (my stepmother’s mom). It’s an awesome family recipe that’s perfect for Thanksgiving.
I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does each year! It’s delicious!
