Emaw's Cornbread Dressing

Total Time

This is my mother's dressing recipe, finally captured on paper, lol. We use her cornbread recipe to make this as the pre-made mixes are very sweet and affect the taste of the dressing in a really not so good way.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all the ingredients except stock.
  3. Pour hot stock over everything and mix well.
  4. Pour into a large casserole or roasting pan.
  5. I use a 12 x 14 x 6 pan.
  6. Bake for at least one hour, depending on the size pan you use, you may have to bake an additional half hour.

My mom used to make this when I was a child! She never wrote it down but as a teen I helped her in the kitchen and remember these ingredients being used. This is the closest to what I remember her recipe tasting like. Thanks for posting, this is definetly a keeper for us and it brings back Holiday memories!

I made this for Thanksgiving dinner and it was excellent. I used dry parsley flakes and poultry seasoning versus sage since it's what I had on hand. I also added lots of black pepper. It was moist and delish!

This is the only kind of dressing I have ever had. The only change I make is to omit celery for my dh. Thank you for getting her to admit the true recipe :)
