This dressing makes a great side dish at Christmas. It complements many main dishes but my favorite is roast pork.—Judy Been, Waukesha, Wisconsin

"The flavor was wonderful! I used P. Farm whole grain seeded rye. Also used J. Dean Sage sausage. I will reduce the butter next time to 1/4 cup. The dressing seemed a little too oily in my mouth. Instead of seasoned salt I used 1 tsp garlic salt, 3/4 tsp sea salt & pinches of marjoram, parsley, and minced fresh sage."
