What is your favorite stuffing or dressing?

My stuffing for our Thanksgiving turkey is kind of boring, but tasty. I use Pepperidge Farm from a bag, and then add onions and celery. What is your favorite?

the last time i made stuffing, i used a 1/2 bag each of pepperidge farm regular and corn bread cubes, a couple of slices of pepperidge farm nutty oat bread, celery, onions, apples, mushrooms (shiitake and button), fennel, and sweet turkey sausage.
the turkey sausage, and the liquid (white wine/turkey stock) from deglazing the pan after browning it makes all of the difference.

I follow the recipe on the back of the Bell's Seasoning box, using various breads, with a couple of additions - mushrooms and sometimes pine nuts and/or sausage.

Boring or not, this is my fave too, amber. Sometimes I put the minced-up giblet meat in too. Mom used to put oysters in it.

The turkey stuffing I liked the best was made with chestnuts and apples. Unfortunately I don't have the recipe for it, I looked around and I think this is pretty close. I would use less celery and for "poultry seasoning" I would use some mixture of herbs like thyme+majoram+oregano...

I do the Pepperidge Farms thing too because I've never actually gotten around to making it myself. Probably a stupid question but am I missing out?

Me three, Amber and mudbug. Although I add two pounds of browned Jimmy Dean sage sausage to mine. I'd rather eat that stuffing than anything else on my plate. Well, except for the crispy turkey skin.

week old white bread torn apart in sm chunks. Onion, celery,poultry spice and chopped up boiled giblets and then I use the broth from the giblets to moisten the stuffing.Might sound boaring to most but we all love it.

Sounds like we're all on the same page with regards to stuffing recipes. The sausage ideas are unique to me though. Pepperidge farm seems to have all the herbs and spices that one needs to make a great stuffing, with added veggies, onion and celery. I like to put my stuffing in the turkey, and have a side casserole dish of it too. My fav is from the inside of the turkey
