I slow cooked this stuffing in the Wonderbag, making it the perfect dish to prepare first thing on Thanksgiving morning, then put it in the bag, set it aside and let it slow cook all day.

This also saves valuable oven space for things like Garlic Herb Bacon Wrapped Turkey Breast, Rosemary Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes and Portobello Mushroom Brussels Sprout Casserole!
