Me and a dear friend of mine who is no longer with us, made this dressing for 17 years at Thanksgiving. I still make it and it brings back wonderful memories of her and I laughing, chopping, mixing and tasting. This is a terrific recipe. Hope you make this recipe and make your own memories.

The seasoning is spot on but the recipe is off unless you like to have seasoned cornbread soup. It was way too liquid and that was even adding three to four slices of bread to it. Complete waste of time and ingredients.
