Being from California, my family has always been big veggie eaters. I wanted to share a little taste of home with my in-laws so I created this dish for Thanksgiving. You don't have to let it sit overnight, but it's a nice make-ahead option and the flavors mesh more that way. —Patricia Broussard, Lafayette, Louisiana
At least 10 of us women made this old-fashioned dressing to feed over 1,500 people at our church's fall festival. Everyone thought it was wonderful. It's the best dressing I've ever made.Patty Kierce, Weir, Texas
At her home in Carrollton, Missouri, Ruby Harman dresses up stuffing mix with pork sausage and jarred mushrooms to create this in-a-dash dressing. The hearty side dish is terrific with chicken, turkey or pork.
“This mouthwatering and slightly sweet recipe was my mother’s, so it has to be at least 65-70 years old,” writes Karen Andrews from Arlington, Texas. “It’s just not Christmas at our house without this favorite dressing...and it goes great with goose, too,” Karen adds.
