This recipe resembles the type of dressing that my mother's family used to make. This style of dressing is very moist and can be dipped with a spoon.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups cornmeal (I prefer buttermilk style)
  • 1 12 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 14 cup oil
  • 1 -2 teaspoon sugar (depending on taste)
  • 4 -5 cups chicken broth (canned broth works fine(use 4 cups if you want to cut dressing with knife-will still be moist--use)
  • 2 cups finely crumbled loaf bread
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 14 cup milk
