Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Absolutely wonderful! As I cut our parsley from the garden out back we used less than the amount required. I also didn't have poultry seasoning so combined tarragon, thyme and marjoram (about 2 tsp each) to make the poultry seasoning. The dressing was wonderful (my bread was whole wheat) and a wonderful way to use up the extra loaf of bread. This made a lot and was enjoyed by all. Thanks for sharing!
