Every so often, getting together with friends and family is not an option, yet you may still desire the flavors of Thanksgiving. This recipe combines all the ingredients we love on one pan. The turkey is stuffed with a cheesy bread stuffing, roasted, then surrounded with fall vegetables and roasted a little longer. Sprinkle some more Sargento® Shredded Cheese on top and you have a dinner that’s easy and small, but still leaves leftovers for the next day.
