This old-fashioned dressing is a great side dish for the Thanksgiving or alongside roast chicken. Made with saltine crackers, celery, onions, and herbs, it's simple and satisfying.

Absolutely delicious. I initially had doubts about how it would turn out, however I followed the recipe strictly and it was wonderful. A hit at my families early Thanksgiving dinner. Thank you!

I needed to use up some matzoh crackers, and subbed them for the saltines in this recipe. Poured mushroom soup over the top, baked it, and we ate it casserole style. Yum :)
