Michelle’s Turkey Stuffing

Spread the love

Celebrating Thanksgiving wasn’t something that came natural to my parents as Italian immigrants. But, my mother adopted this holiday and made it her own. One way in particular was with her stuffing. We don’t have the traditional bread stuffing that many people enjoy on Thanksgiving. Her stuffing is definitely out of the box, but it is AMAZING! As with other Italian immigrants, my family “Italianized” this American holiday. It is the perfect blend of Italian and American traditions.
