From Our Table to Yours: Suzanne's Stuffing

You can test some of our favorite family recipes at home!

MACON, Ga. — Just in time for the holidays, we at 13WMAZ wanted to share some of our favorite Thanksgiving recipes with you!

For this episode, weekend morning anchor Suzanne Lawler brought her family's recipe for the Thanksgiving staple: stuffing.

Suzanne grew up in a household where her mom and dad actually stuffed the turkey with stuffing.

One day, she asked her mom how to make the stuffing, and her mom told her that she learned the dish from the back of a breadcrumb mix bag.

A small but important ingredient that Suzanne and her mom add to their stuffing... is button mushrooms.

The dish is easy to make! You just take all of the ingredients for the stuffing with some ground sausage, and put it all in a crockpot.

If you try her stuffing recipe, email us at news@13WMAZ.com to let us know what you think!
