Homemade stuffing

    1 hour

    This is a cheats recipe for stuffing. Shop bought, plain stuffing mix is blended with sauteed garlic, onion, celery, spring onions, pears and parsley. It's then moistened with chicken stock. If you like the stuffing a little dryer, add less chicken stock. Serve as an alternative to the traditional stuffing served at Christmas dinner or Sunday lunch.

    Made this again this year - many compliments. This is a great stuffing that tastes like you spent a long time putting it together, when you spend little time in the kitchen with this. Yummy!!  -  27 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
