It's easy, but successful. Tastes I liked. Thanks. I also want to know how to make 'honey spread'. My way to do is melted butter and honey mixed. But I want more than that. I suppose something other ingredients needed. Thanks

I made this for Thanksgiving one year about 5 years ago and I make it every year now. My family loves it so much that they often request it, even on days that we are not celebrating with a turkey! Love it! Easy and Delicious!

I sauteed 2c onion & 2c celery in 1c butter. I used 2TBS parsley flakes. I substituted poultry seasoning for the bouillion. I omitted the water, corn, green chiles & pecans. Used this with Stuffed Pork chops recipe. Was great.

Great Stuffing

I loved this dish. It was a hit with my husband's family at Thanksgiving. I'll make it again next year, but I'll taste the celery before I add it next time. It was bitter, and I think it will taste even better with "good" celery.

Made the recipe but used a can of corn with red & green peppers already included. The original recipe has a kick, mine is more decorative. Both ways add flavor & are easy & fun to make.
