Thanksgiving Stuffing with Roasted Root Vegetables
My husband's family is chock-full of good cooks. Last year, one of his aunts made a stuffing that was chock full of roasted root vegetables. I think I ate more than my share... it was delicious. Here is a version I found on the web.
Roasting enhances the sweetness and deep flavor of autumn root vegetables. To save time, roast the vegetables the night before you make the stuffing. Don't be afraid to let the vegetables get nicely browned -- the caramelization will only enhance their taste. Use with turkey, chicken, or pork.

Thanks again, everyone, for your support!
Hope to hear from you soon.
