This was a favorite of my midwestern family's. I watched my grandmother and mother make it all my life and it's just part of Thanksgiving,Easter,Christmas or a large Sunday dinner for me..my father loves it and I cook it about twice a month for him..he can eat a roaster pan alone..I fix it in small containers and he freezes it and takes it out as he wants...he's 90!!!

This tastes just like what my grandma used to make. I can't believe that I made dressing that my family would actually eat. For the last 10+ years, when I made dressing, it was "lovingly" referred to as "the green cake"...after many ill-fated attempts at dressing, I had given up. I am SO glad I found this recipe. This is how I will make dressing from now on...no more "green cake" for the family. ;o)
