    I made this using dense white bread, and apples instead of figs and it was a huge hit. It was sweet, but still savory. I may add sauteed onions and celery next time too.

    This is a dish that everyone at Thanksgiving loves, but no one knows what it is..."Can you pass that sweet stuffing?" Then you get to explain what's in it and how you baked the pumpkin challah and the cornbread and everyone gets all impressed:) To make vegetarian I used vegetable stock and added more butter for flavor. Don't try to find pumpkin challah in a store, it's not going to happen. Just take a day to bake it and freeze until you need it.
