It's an easy, exact recipe for good cornbread dressing just like my mother and grandmother made, but they could never give me exact measurments of the ingredients because they always cooked to taste (signs of a good cook!).

This is almost like the dressing my grandmother used to make. I served this at a dinner party and the guests loved it. I even shared it with my co-workers and when they made it there family loved it too. This is good. Every time I took a bite all I kept saying was this is so good!
Very good. I made a smaller portion, made my own broth as I boiled the turkey gizzards and did not use the cream of chicken soup. Made sweetcornbread and added plenty of cayenne. Better than my ex's mothers! Thank you!
