  1. Looks delicious! I think you could turn this into a crockpot recipe. You would need to cook the stuffing first probably, and then put it all in the crockpot on low for a few hours.

  2. That sounds delicious! My problem with Thanksgiving is my family ONLY wants the old standards: yams with HFCS syrup, turkey, cranberry in a can, stove top stuffing. BLECH. Now this I would love.

  3. YUM – threw this together with random stuff around the house (love having a packed pantry) and it was delicious, especially with a bit of melted/shredded cheese on top!!!!
