Well, here goes my first post!.. This is basically a mash-up of all the things I love about dressing but based on a chestnut dressing I found on food network. I've never been a fan of celery or carrots but in this recipe the carrots aren't overwhelming so I leave them in. I absolutely LOVE chestnuts and I think they complete this dressing beautifully. I've made this with breakfast, sweet Italian, and spicy sausage so use whatever you prefer but I love mine spicy!
