A question to all out there with a houseful of guests this week, are you running out of dinner ideas yet?
Perhaps other's are looking for an elegant New Years Eve dinner idea?

This dish looks like you spent all day in the kitchen when really it just takes minutes to prepare.
You can substitute the stuffing ingredients with just about anything you have on hand.
