I do not have a favorite recipe per say.. I REALLY like my moms potato stuffing though. and its VERY easy. All you do is make mashed potatoes how you usually would, and then add in some summer savory, and onions diced up really tiny. and salt and pepper to taste. And really anything else you would like to add on in there, I bet bacon would be good in there. I have a friend who puts bacon in almost everything lol. yummy :)
