This was really good. I loved the fresh herbs. Like another reviewer, mine turned out very moist, some might think overly moist, but I like it that way, so I was happy with it. The only change I made was to add an egg to it, just because that's how I always make my dressing. Thanks Sue for a very tasty recipe!!

I used this for Thanksgiving meal 2009. It was disappointing because it turned out soggy. My breadcrumbs were probably not dry enough so I shouldn't have added all the liquid. Experienced dressing makers probably would have been able to tell, I'm sure. I'm going to try again because I love the fresh herbs. Next time I'll hold the liquid.

Great way to do stuffing! I used a packaged bread cube in one dish and homemade soft bread stuffing in another. My guest could not decide which was better. The homemade cube was a softer and more moist dressing, the onions and celery really crunched! The other was just like my family favorite. Delicious!
