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.

This is basically like my grandmothers. Since my grandmother would die if I posted her entire recipe, I thought I'd rate this one. Instead of white bread, my grandmother uses homemade biscuits. She also uses closer to a dozen eggs for her dressing. (her skillet is about 3 inches larger and we make ours as a cross between a custard and a dressing). But otherwise the recipe is exactly the same. We like this. If you want sage in your dressing, you make a northern recipe. I am from the South, I don't know anyone that uses sage in their dressing. Although it's easily added if you so choose

This sounds great, but true Southern Cornbread dressing has to have sage in it

This is very good and much like my Grandmother's. She had a varation on it though, use at least of cup of cooked diced chicken in it and the broth and don't forget the sage to taste. Also, (instead of chicken)try small fresh oysters and the juice (in addition to some chicken broth, in accordance) and you have two great dressing casseroles! Use salt sparingly, pepper generously. Cook until golden and firm. I don't use bread just a fresh cooked pone of cornbread. Enjoy! Chef MichaelY

This was super fantastic! I just made this for the first time for a Major in the US Airforce originally from the South. I added sage sausage though with additional sage seasoning. It was a big hit and yummy! Thanks, I will make only this dressing from now on!

This is really, really good! For years, I've been trying to duplicate my Grandma's recipe for dressing.. she died when I was 7 or 8, but I can still remember the taste, smell, and texture.. this comes very close.(I'm so happy:).. I omitted the green onions, and added sage and thyme... absolutely delish!! Thanks so much!!

This is the best dressing ever! I've had this every year since I can remember with Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. My family's version is only slightly different: I add some poultry seasoning to taste, prefer wheat to white bread, and I add some hard-boiled egg instead of the beaten egg. Also, something Southerners take for granted: use unsweetened cornbread! (And don't be afraid to make it a little on the soupy side--it firms right up in the oven.)

Easy to make and yummy! I added 1 store-bought Italian sausage, browned and crumbled and halved the recipe, cause there were only 4 of us for Thanksgiving. Since no exact amount of Chicken broth is indicated in the recipe, I thought it might help others to know that I used 1 can of Chicken broth for half the recipe. Also it took about 40 mins at 350 for top to reach golden brown. - Thanks JANIC412!

This was easy to make but I didn't find that had much of a taste
