Get Stuffed -- Organic Granola Whole Wheat Bread Stuffing

What is Thanksgiving without a nice big Turkey, and what is Thanksgiving Turkey Feast without some delicious stuffing?

You'll be glad to know the Berkshire Grain Test Kitchen crew agrees, and has been thinking about this very thing. The staff has been having a yummy time researching and testing various recipes in search of our very own stuffing recipe.

This one is bursting with apple cinnamon toast flavor that will be the perfect side to your turkey this Thanksgiving.......... of course if you're a practicing Vegetarian, then skip the Turkey and head right to the stuffing -- just remember to share with the "omnivores."
