Are you tired of the same old turkey dressing you have used for years on end? Are you looking for something to have your family sit up and take notice on Thanksgiving Day? Since the age of twenty five I have always made the bread dressing that my mother made every turkey day. It was very good but one Thanksgiving I decided it was time to break out of the rut and come up with something different and delicious that everyone would enjoy and even request the recipe. This is what I came up with. I don’t like an all cornbread dressing, I thought it needed a blend of tastes and texture and the dry white bread cubes fit that bill very well. The spice and the chewiness of the sausage really adds another dimension to the dressing. Now, I am call this “dressing” as versus “stuffing” because I am baking this outside the bird. But, if you wish to use this to stuff your turkey, go right ahead. Just wait until the last minute to stuff that turkey and bake as per the directions for a stuffed turkey. It is not too late to dry your bread and cornbread. I baked a pan of cornbread, let it cool then sliced it into one inch thick slices and laid them out on a tray to dry. I just laid the white bread slices out on another tray to dry. I think you’ll agree that this is one delicious dressing that will get you raves on Thanksgiving Day.
