Nothing Says Southern Cooking Like A Turkey Stuffing Casserole
My mom would make Turkey Stuffing casserole on what I called "Special Sundays." These were Sundays that we'd invited a family from church home for dinner. She chose to serve this dish because she knew everyone would love it, especially when she added a lot of turkey meat.
I don't think we ever got tired of that meal. We didn't care if it had a running clock of calories attached to it, we would pour some turkey gravy or giblet gravy over it and chow down! The nap that followed complimented the meal completely.
I like to add dried cranberries to my casserole. It gives a nice little tangy, sweet taste that pleasantly surprises the taste buds. Add some brussel sprouts and a pumpkin pie and you've got yourself a winning dinner!
