Here's a variation to the bread stuffing. The main ingredients are mashed chestnuts and rice. This is a traditional stuffing in some parts of America.


Drain mushrooms; reserve broth. Heat butter or margarine in skillet. Sauté mushrooms, olives, parsley, and celery. Combine mushroom mixture with reserved broth and remaining ingredients. Mix well. Makes enough stuffing for a 5- to 6-pound chicken. Recipe may be doubled for an 8- to 10-pound turkey.
