I've been making this since I first saved it in 2011. Very easy to make and my family loves it as-is.

We love this dish; it’s Thanksgiving all rolled into one dish. I have made one change and added a layer of mashed potatoes between the meat and bread layers. And it’s really good the next day when the flavors really have time to mingle.

I really like this recipe, but I changed a few things. The concept of the dish is like a shepherd's pie...seasoned meat in gravy on bottom, starchy topping on top. I subbed ground pork for half the turkey for moistness. I skipped the sage and added one teaspoon of poultry seasoning to the meat. I following the stuffing recipe as written, but next time, I would use a full one pound loaf of supermaket french bread. Then divided into 2 8x8 pans. Will increase cranberries next time, maybe add apple?
