ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I have made this a million times and it's just awesome! The vermouth you can omit and it still tastes just as good. I usually add more spices and herbs than what is called for. My boyfriends friends LOVED it and they are picky eaters! It was gone in 2.2 seconds! Luckily I made 2 pans worth!

NOTE: Somersizers, take a celery root and after cooking, mash and use in place of potatoes. Very good and not fattening like potatoes. And if you have a DH who loves potatoes like I have, then make both. Celery Root for me and Potatoes for him.

I made this stuffing for Thanksgiving. The only thing I changed was that I used vegetable broth and not as much herbs as the recipe called for. The celery root was tasty but I think you could omit that from the recipe without effecting the flavor much (just add more celery). It was interesting to make and I enjoyed it. I will probably make this again but not necessarily for a special occcasion such as Thankgiving.
