This is super!!! I made it before Thanksgiving to see if we would like it and the family LOVED it. So I made it again for Thanksgiving and will make it for Christmas, too!  I modified a bit, I used 2 teaspoons of sage, thyme, garlic and onion powder and next time will probably use 3 teaspoons of them and the parsley. I added 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke and will probably add 1 full teaspoon next time. I made it with the stuffing and it was easy to do. It has a nice presentation on the plate. It goes great with some vegan brown gravy. It easily served a family of 4. I highly recommend this recipe!
