This recipe is a little unique. It’s completely different than any stuffing I’ve ever had and it for sure has that Fall taste to it. I’m not sure I’ll be craving to making it again, I think it’s the pumpkin flavor that throws me off. Don’t get me wrong it’s tasty just not something I look forward to having a lot of leftovers of.
