Reviews were mixed on this one. Most people thought the recipe came out a little soggy - a little too much like bread pudding, but that could maybe be fixed by toasting the breadcrumbs longer, or starting with stale bread cubes and then toasting them. I personally thought it was fantastic, but the pickier eaters found it a little weird, although they still ate plenty of it. I think I would use a wheat sour dough loaf if I were going to make it again for better texture and color. The apple and onion flavors meld in really nicely.

We honestly did not care for this dressing, which is surprising given the ingredients. I did cube and toast the bread much longer than the mentioned time to be sure the bread held up to the chicken stock. That came out fine, but the dressing itself was bland and really could have used more flavor. There are some very good dressing/stuffing recipes out there, so I doubt I'll make this one again.

This has turned into my family's Thanksgiving traditional dressing. My kids love it! I don't follow the recipe exactly. I just kinda eyeball everything. I cook it in a dish instead of inside the bird too. Delicious!!! Bacon!!!
