"Thanks to this recipe dry, old cornbread muffins and leftover turkey breast became a creamy mouthwatering dish! I agree with others, this is a great way to use up leftovers. After only eating half at dinner time, it made a great, quick breakfast dish that needed only a minute in the microwave. A great way to get everyone out the door in the morning. I also agree that using poultry seasoning worked great."

"Great use of leftovers. Poultry seasoning works well in place of the rubbed sage."

"I haven't made this recipe, but we call this cornbread dressing. I would add a few boild eggs, chopped onion, bell pepper and celery, a couple TBSP Splenda or Stevia, one can Cream of chicken Sour and one of Cream of Celery, and like the previous reviewer, no sliced bread, just cornbread. Yum"

"This was very bland. My family each had one small helping and didn't want any mone. They all ask that I not make it again. 3/4 of the dish went in the trash."
