What’s Your Spice this Thanksgiving?

What spices do you use in your dressing for Thanksgiving? I like to use ground sage and poultry seasonings. They seem to go hand and hand in making a good dressing. My mother always used some sage but not very much. She let the flavors work from the chicken she made which included celery, onions, and green peppers.

If you use sage just be very careful not use too much because it will slightly turn your dressing a green color which is not the way old-fashioned dressing should look.

Below are traditional and southern-style Thanksgiving recipes:
