This recipe was given to me by a friend, and it has been a family tradition ever since. No need to stuff the turkey. This dressing can be made the day before Thanksgiving and heated in the microwave 10 minutes before serving!

I served this to accompany our Christmas dinner and everyone loved it! Some even said it was the best dish on the table. The only change i had to make was to use a larger pan. 9x13 was way too small. Thanks! Read More

This was a nice change from the traditional cornbread dressing/stuffing. I used turkey sausage because my family does not eat pork and I could not find sage-flavored sausage so I added it to the recipe. I also cut the recipe in half and it still filled a 2-qt dish. Very good overall. Read More

This was a great recipe... I didn't give it a 5 because my dad's recipe is the best. He passed away this year and had never written down his recipe. This one was the closest we found... not quite the same (maybe its because I had to make it and not my dad) but it was really good.The Water Chestnuts are a great touch! Read More

This is one of the best dressing recipes I have ever used. I found it best with a sage sausage. It's been a hit everywhere we have taken it. Read More

This was pretty good. I thought it had a bit too much sausage and not nearly enough vegetables. It wasn't very colorful so I ended up adding about 3/4 cup more celery and sprinkled some parsley on top. It was too wet at first but I cooked it for about 35 minutes in the oven and it turned out nicely. Read More

I substituted regular turkey sausage and added thyme instead of sage. Also my husband mistakenly bought only one pound of sausage which we didn't discover until Thanksgiving day. The recipe as is seemed a bit heavy on the sausage and light on the rice anyway so I used just the one pound of sausage. I also omitted the mushrooms for my family members who don't like them. The result was great and got rave reviews. Read More
