Complementing your golden bird, the well-seasoned bread stuffing is sparked by a festive sweetness from apples and raisins. It's a staple on our holiday menu. —Nancy Zimmerman, Cape May Court House, New Jersey
Whenever I serve this succulent golden turkey and delectable dressing, guests fill their plates and I'm buried in compliments. This recipe always makes a holiday dinner one to remember. It's well worth the time.

People tell me this pie is almost better than the original dinner! I fix turkey all year long, and I purposely make too much just so we can have this later on. It's a complete meal in itself.
My sister and I took turns cooking when we were in high school...my husband and I have four grown sons...and I used to cook for pheasant hunters we took in. So I've had lots of practice!
My husband created the recipe for this tempting turkey and delectable dressing. It's a feast that seems like Thanksgiving whenever we enjoy it. He gets lots of recipe requests for this memorable main dish.

"THE DRESSING was always my favorite part of the meal. I can still smell the wonderful aroma that filled the house while the turkey roasted in our wood stove. We could hardly wait to sit down and eat!"
When our family gathers for Christmas dinner, we'll carve a succulent turkey and savor the stuffing my mother taught me to make. Her version of the Southern favorite gets color and zip from the olives and chilies.
"When I worked at a local deli, a customer gave me this family-pleasing recipe," recalls Darlene Ward of Hot Springs, Arkansas. "After a busy day, I tried it with quicker boxed stuffing mix in place of homemade dressing. It's wonderful with salad and green beans."
With delicious chopped chestnuts in the savory stuffing, this golden roasted bird is a special Thanksgiving treat. It's a "must" on the menu at the annual holiday meal my family shares with dear friends.—Ardis Rollefson, Jackson Hole, Wyoming
"For a special-occasion main dish that's perfect for a small family gathering, try this moist tender turkey breast with its unusual dressing," suggests Kathi Graham of Naperville, Illinois. "Lemon and garlic flavor the meat, while raisins and shredded carrot add sweetness and color to the couscous stuffing."
