Just amazing! It made the Thanksgiving meal. I used sweet sausage instead of spicy because we are a delicate group! But it was the best dressing I have ever had and handed out many copies of the recipe. There were no left-overs. Read More

I think I'll stick to my mother's recipe. This was good but I enjoy her version better it's base is a little more savory and she cuts up cooked turkey breast meat or the boiled insides (neck gizzards & heart) of the turkey and adds it to the dressng. I suppose it just depends on your taste but the sausage version didn't work for my family. Read More

My family LOVES this dressing. They want it even when it is not a holiday. Freezes well before baked so make it up ahead of time. Read More

This was the most outstanding accompanimemnt to our Thanksgiving turkey. We opted for a sweet Italian turkey sausage and used a poultry seasoning instead of purchasing all the individual spices. This is far more flavorful than any plain bread stuffing I've ever had. Read More

I used this recipe for Thanksgiving but I did not put the apples I did however add chopped hard boiled eggs and some bellpepper. I also used the stock from the turkey for the finishing flavor. THE BEST DRESSING EVER Better than my own Grandma's! Read More

EXCELLENT RECIPE AS STATED. THE ONLY THING I DID DIFFRENT WAS TO BAKE THE CORN BREAD MIX IN A 9X13 BAKING DISH THEN SLICED IT INTO 1 INCH CUBES AND FLUFFED WITH A FORK AFTER IT COOLED. I THINK IT GAVE THE DISH A BETTER VISUAL EFFECT RATHER THEN CRUMBLING THE CORN BREAD INTO A BOWL AS THE RECIPE STATES. WILL DEFINATELY MAKE AGAIN. Read More

I made this recipe at Thanksgiving. I was very worried about changing our standard dressing we have every year but my family loved it. The best judge was my son who is the pickiest eater in the world and he kept talking about how much he loved the dressing. I didn't change any part of the recipe. This is my every Thanksgiving dressing now. Read More

Everyone loved this dressing! I made a few changes of my own of course. I used Jimmy Dean Maple sausage instead of hot sausage and it was excellent with the apples. I mixed 2 batches at one time and it seemed a little too dry so I added 1 cup of apple cider. The cider made the dressing. Thanks for the great idea. Read More

FABULOUS!!! I made it for the first time for Thanksgiving and my family LOVED it!! Hubby has requested we stick to this recipe! I used sweet italian bulk sausage because that's what I had on hand and I wasn't tryin to make a trip to the store the day before Thanksgiving!! LOL I used poultry seasonings instead of individual spices (again thats what I had on hand) which worked LOVELY! I didn't measure I just dumped some in! I also used some of the turkey drippings instead of chicken broth and I omitted the butter (out of sheer forgetfulness) I will experiment with adding an egg and more broth next time because it was a bit dry for my taste. DEFINITELY a 'keeper recipe' Thanks!! =) Read More
