    It's Novemeber and I've got a ton of mushrooms going December I'm going to have to make stuffing for the family and I'm wondering if I can be cunning and freeze a batch of this now? Has anyone frozen it before? Did it come out ok and at which stage should I freeze it do you think? Thanks!  -  21 Nov 2011


    Something else. this is always a hit. I've shared the recipe with family and friends. I don't measure the breadcrumbs but dry 1 loaf of white bread, cube it and then double the stock and seasoning. we added portabella mushrooms and it was wonderful. I didn't put the apple in but may have to try it the next time. This is a very good recipe and there are never any leftovers. Thanks for sharing your recipe Christine!  -  24 Jul 2008


    Took shortcuts. Great moist stuffing - even cooked inside the turkey. I used some chopped portabello mushrooms instead of all button mushrooms to add some additional flavour. Also, to save time, I made the stuffing and refrigerated it overnight before cooking and it turned out fine.  -  24 Jul 2008
