These are a tradition in my mother-in-law's family. I never liked dressing until I had these. They get a nice golden brown on the outside and taste great with gravy.

We loved these. They are going to definately be a part of our menu. Very simple to make, and goes a long way. They freeze really well.

I love stuffing and I will make these again. I added a little sage (that's probably what you don't like in dressing). I'll be making these form now on every time I cook a turkey breast. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
