Dressing is outstanding. I don't eat deli meat if I don't have to. Used turkey tenderloin, sliced into medallions seasons w/ season salt, pepper and garlic powder, then dusted with flour & pan fried in two tablespoons of EVO. Other than the meat, followed recipe, will definitely keep in rotation. Cheese toast was good too, made with multi-grain whole wheat bread.
