This is it! Just like my mom's old recipe from Osage. I did cube my bread, but otherwise followed the recipe and then baked the dressing. Yummy delicous!! This is what I'll be making from now on.

This is essentially "my" stuffing recipe...or at least my version of my father's recipe that he never wrote down. I like to use a whole package/roll of the bulk pork sausage (Tobin's brand is my preference) and I use an entire box of Bell's Poultry Seasoning. NO, it is not overwhelming, especially since I am usually working with three loaves of stuffing bread (all white). In our family, it simply isn't turkey, and it isn't Thanksgiving without this recipe.
