I am not a dressing eater. BUT, I made this recipe several years ago (for everyone else), tried it and loved it! It is the only dressing I'll eat - from Southern Living.

Really delicious LorenLou! Over Thanksgiving, visiting family in Louisiana, I had the best seafood dressing! I couldn't find the recipe I was given, but thought this sounded pretty close. I made two boxes of Jiffy cornbread instead of from scratch. This makes a nice 9x13 pan full. Do make sure to add all the broth and watch out that you don't overcook. I used half shrimp and half crab instead of crawfish. Tasty!
