1/2 cup; sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)

1 box (12 oz.) of Mrs. Cubbison's Traditional Seasoned Stuffing

  • Place the grape or apple juice, wine, and sun-dried tomatoes in a medium-sized saucepan, and bring to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and allow to sit for about 5 minutes, or until the tomatoes are soft and tender. Drain off and reserve the liquid, allowing it to cool. Finely chop the tomatoes.

  • Transfer the stuffing to the prepared casserole dish and cover. Bake on middle rack of preheated 325°F oven for 30 to 40 minutes until internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  • If a crisp top is desired, uncover the dish and bake for 10 additional minutes.
