Mushroom Butternut Squash Stuffing

Believe it or not, I actually never used to eat stuffing. But if you read some of my other posts about my weird food preferences, you probably would believe. Per usual, I had a very good reason, I never had tried it but was certain I didn’t like it. But basically, I refused to try anything in which I didn’t know every ingredient in the recipe and then liked every ingredient in said recipe. And so, I never would eat stuffing.

Fast forward many many years. I realized that stuffing is really just bread and eggs or savory french toast. Right?! So I just went right ahead and add my favorite savory items: mushrooms, cheese, and butternut squash and now I can’t get enough of stuffing. I could eat it every day!
