Sausage and Walnut Dressing

Beth Johnston


When I was a Senior in High School my term paper was about the foods of the middle ages of England. I found a similar dressing in an old English cookbook. I updated and changed some of the ingredients. When it was time to present my term paper I served roasted turkey with Sausage and Walnut dressing to the class for lunch. This earned me an A+ on the term paper. Thirty-four years later, I am still making the Sausage and Walnut dressing whenever I roast a turkey.
