When my grandmother passed away, I received a number of things from her estate. None were as important to me as her handwritten recipe for dressing. Not only is it the BEST dressing I've ever tasted, but it's also not too "sage"y...wonderful for those of us who don't adore sage. I add mushrooms and sometimes finely chopped oysters for personal preference. The shared secret recipe is written out on "General Shale Brick" notepaper, the company my grandfather worked for before he died.
