Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    This stuffing will be moist. If you prefer a drier stuffing, reduce the water to 1 1/2 cups. For a flavor change, make apple-sausage stuffing. Omit the walnuts and reduce the butter to 1/4 cup. Add 12 oz cooked and drained sausage with the mushrooms.
