    submrnfamily's Note:

    This is a very basic typical stuffing. The sage complements the turkey exceedingly well. It is a down and dirty no frills bread stuffing.

      I think it's great ! The rewiewer that said too bitter did you not realize dried herbs are weaker in taste ? fresh is ALWAYS STRONGER. HAPPY HOLIDAYS

      This is a decent basic dressing recipe. I don't understand why people have to be rude when posting reviews. While too much parsley can be a little bitter, I can't help but wonder how much dried parsley vs fresh the previous poster used.

      I thought this was terrible! I've never tried making dressing before so I thought I'd go with this traditional recipe. The only alteration I made was using dried parsely instead of fresh. It was VERY bitter tasting! 3 of us tried it and couldn't finish our portions. I threw the rest of the pan to the dogs...they gave it 5 stars ;)
