Depending on where you're from you may call it stuffing or dressing, but whatever it is, no a Thanksgiving meal isn't complete without it! If you're vegetarian or vegan, this sweet cranberry stuffing recipe is a great way to add a bit of color and Thanksgiving or Christmas flavor to your stuffing. I love making stuffing because the aroma in the kitchen is simply heavenly, and this cranberry stuffing recipe is no exception! See also: More vegetarian stuffing recipes

Absolutely DELICIOUS! Everyone DEVOURS!, Guest SweetCeCe

I've made this dressing for several occasions. Each and every time I have made it people have devoured it like they were starving 1/2 to death! I never saw anything like this in my life! You can add pecans (chopped) to this, but otherwise, it is actually delicous on its own.
