My mom always made it with white bread, onions, celery, sage, s & p, mushrooms. I like it moist.
I've never cooked a turkey; always make dressing (gasp!! horrors!) from a box, when I want it. Being mostly vegetarian (heh - I'll eat turkey when someone else makes it, heh!), I don't eat it much. Or, shall I say, I don't cook it (that's more accurate).
I did get an interesting recipe online for a walnut loaf, that the poster stated she made without fail for every T'giving (family missed it when she didn't make it). Maybe I'll try that. I know, it isn't traditional, therefore probably not very attractive to most of youse!
