Christmas Stuffing Recipe

Firstly, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our foodie friends and bloggers! Christmas is almost upon us, last minute presents to find, the last few days to make sure all of our friends and family will enjoy the effort that has been put into the one day you hope everything will go well.
For us, nothing can beat the traditional Christmas dinner; this doesn’t mean that the odd twist cannot be introduced without frightening everyone away from the table.
Every year we try just one item, this year it is going to be the stuffing and I know everyone will just love this one.
