I served this to accompany our Christmas dinner and everyone loved it! Some even said it was the best dish on the table. The only change i had to make was to use a larger pan. 9x13 was way too small. Thanks!


This was a nice change from the traditional cornbread dressing/stuffing. I used turkey sausage because my family does not eat pork, and I could not find sage-flavored sausage, so I added it to the recipe. I also cut the recipe in half, and it still filled a 2-qt dish. Very good overall.


This was a great recipe... I didn't give it a 5 because my dad's recipe is the best. He passed away this year and had never written down his recipe. This one was the closest we found... not quite the same (maybe its because I had to make it and not my dad) but it was really good.The Water Chestnuts are a great touch!
