Whether you call it dressing (cooked outside the turkey) or stuffing (cooked inside the turkey), no true southern girl cooks a turkey "plain'! This is a true traditional southern sage dressing that has stood the test of time, as it has been handed down through several generations.

    DRESSING: Place mixture in 9x13 pan (or size determined by amount of dressing - if using remainder after stuffing turkey). Bake at 350 degrees, covered 30 minutes, uncovered approximately 10 or until lightly browned on top. Be careful not to over bake - may become too dry.
