Sausage Mushroom Dressing

To go with your turkey entree, how about serving Sausage Mushroom Dressing? The recipe comes from Mary Coleman of Norwood, Massachusetts. "My children and guests almost pass over the turkey in favor of this savory dressing each holiday," Mary notes.

    I have made this dressing for many, many years and it is wonderful every time. Only, I fry my dressing, my grandmother taught me to do this. My children will not eat dressing any other way.
