I made this with French bread from Costco (one of my favorites) cut up in to cubes a few days in advance. I also used a little too much celery so the result was a little crunchy between the crusty bread and the celery. BUT the flavor was great and I will try it again with the cubed bread from the bakery and less celery. I think this one is the winner!

I made a number of changes to this recipe: increased the celery to 1 cup, added a cup of chopped carrots and doubled the sausage. It was moist and terrific; my family loved it. I'd definitely make it again.

I left out the fennel and the celery. This was the best dressing ever!

This dressing turned a person that didn't see what all the fuss over dressing was about into someone that loves it! I left out the fennel added some hasbrown as a filler. So good. It definately will be made again. Brenda

I used pork Italian sausage and added turkey giblets. It was very moist and nice. I would use this recipe again.
