"My family loves this dish! So, now, we have it for a lot of family gatherings; not just for Thanksgiving. It also freezes very well (for at least a month), so that helps those of us whose energy level is limited! I also leave out the green pepper.Thanks for sharing! usedtateach"

"I prepared this recipe back in the fall of 2015! I found it really savory and delicious! I admit that I had made adjustments to the recipe when I prepared it and I used 1 greased and floured 12x6" loaf pan to bake the dressing. I'm glad that I had the chance to try this recipe. Thank you for sharing it with Taste of Home!"
