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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Great recipe!!! I used turkey sausage, added a box of stuffing, cream of mushroom, cream of celery, and quadrupled the chicken broth.

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.
