This stuffing casserole has an interior that feels like you spent all day over a hot stove

There are two kinds of casseroles. One is the carefully curated kind made with love that you bring to grieving friends, family gatherings or neighborhood potlucks. The other is the kind where you throw all the ingredients into a dish, cover it with cheese and hope for the best because you're short on time.
This recipe tastes like the first casserole but is easy to make as the second. The tasty, filling interior screams “spent all day over a hot stove,” while the premade stuffing and cheesy, crispy topping satisfy the needs of the busy home cook. Prepare your palette for stuffing casserole!
