Sweet Potato Stuffing

Mom likes to make sure there will be enough stuffing to satisfy our large family. For our holiday gatherings, she slow-cooks this tasty sweet potato dressing in addition to the traditional stuffing cooked inside the turkey. —Kelly Pollock, London, Ontario

    We also found this to be very bland with no taste. No, I would not make this again.

    I followed the recipe as stated and the flavor was great but for some reason it was sooo dry. Maybe needed more than just 1/2 cup of broth? Hmmm... good seasonings though!

    This is a very tasty stuffing. I used butternut squash in place of sweet potatoes and about a cup of broth.

    We loved this stuffing! This stuffing will be a go to recipe of mine for years! I think that this is a great base stuffing for whatever fun ingredients you enjoy in stuffing. You could add fresh cranberries, sausage, mushroom, oysters, bacon, Brussels sprouts, etc... I added cranberries to the recipe this time. I'm looking forward to playing around with more extras next time. Here's a couple of small adjustments that I made: I changed the 1/2 cup of broth to 1 full cup. And, I substituted Corn Bread cubes for regular bread cubes.Delicious! Thank you for sharing!
