Southern Cornbread Dressing

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by JANIC412

This is how my Grandmother made it. This can also be used to stuff the turkey, chicken, etc. I have found that the stuffing has a better flavor if mixed the day before you need it then bake right before serving. If you like sage, a pinch adds even more flavor.

I thought this was absolutely wonderful. I did make one change, I added some chicken to this recipe. I made my own chicken broth. First I boil the chicken, , kept the broth from the chicken. Then I remove the chicken and added it to my dressing. I am just a country girl from alabama and we love meat. It was excellent.
