Assemble Dressing: Once the dressing is assembled, it should be moist, similar to the consistency of bread pudding.  Put mixture in a Pyrex dish.  Cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-45 minutes or until done in the middle.  Uncover for the last 5 minutes of baking in order to brown the top.
