this is the real thing....I used to be a back up cook at cracker barrel and will testify to its authenticity! It should be wet enough to resemble cornbread batter before baking.....
I love it, but the amount of liquid was not enough. I had to add another 1/2 cup, but it still was dry. Will add more liquid next time I reheat. Will try again since I love cracker barrel's dressing. Great flavor.
Not rating with stars yet since I made substitutions that may have changed the flavor. I didn't have any biscuits so I used leftover homemade dinner rolls. Also, the only cornbread I had was the sweet corn muffin type. I was looking for a recipe similar to my grandma's dressing... this came close but wasn't quite it. The sweet cornbread gave the dressing a sweeter flavor than I would have liked but it still turned out pretty well. I think the sage was a little overpowering and in the future I would reduce the sage by half. I've never tried the dressing from Cracker Barrel, so I can't compare the taste difference with the substitutions I made... but it was still good enough for me to want a double serving!
