:roll: - again! The day before Thanksgiving, I've got much better things to do with my own than make toast for my stuffing!

I fry up breakfast sausage, crumbled and then cook the onions and celery in the grease or butter. I put some Bell's poultry seasoning on each thing as I'm cooking it, so it absorbs some flavor. Around the holidays, they sell "stuffing bread" which is just an uncut loaf. It's usually cheaper than the regular loaves and seems a little denser. (Maybe that's just my imagination.) I just keep adding poultry seasoning until it tastes good. Everything else is just like yours, assuming you use salt & pepper, too.

Man there are so many good ideas here. Which one do I pick from? :D I'm just going to have to cook turkey more often. But that's ok. It's relatively cheep, and tastes so good. Besides, there are som many things you can do with the left-overs.

Why don't you try mixing your stuffing a little on the dry side with your 'normal' amounts of seasonings, veggies, and whatever else you're making it with; then taste it, and if it seems a little bland, mix some more spices with a little chicken broth/water, heat it, and then mix that in to 'adjust' your seasonings?

I love stuffing! Just the smell of the spices and onions/celery makes me swoon!

OT - Have you ever done a stuffed flank steak with bread stuffing?

Mom also made her stuffing with more seasonings than the recipe called for, and do the "tasting" thing to adjust for seasoning errors. She and I always moisten the stuffing with turkey or chicken stock.

If the dressing was made ahead, we will moisten it with turkey gravy, before re-heating it in the oven.

Oh yes. I love stuffed pork chops also!

My mother would also dry her bread out on cookie sheets, and she would add about 1/3 amount of cornbread.
