Southern Cornbread Stuffing- Paula Deen

Total Time
1hr 5mins

Paula Deen's recipe is a family favorite now. It's more like a true southern dressing though, not something you can make to stuff a turkey with but you won't care when you taste it.

I make this recipe every year and just love it. I was reading the nutritional info and don't think that it can be correct. This recipe makes at least 8, if not 12 servings. I was planning on cutting the recipe in half this year and noticed that. Just an FYI if you are tracking nutritional info. I may try to figure it out myself using "My Fitness Pal".

This was a disappointing dish which is a surprise for me since I usually love Paula's recipes. As I was making it I questioned the amount of chicken stock...could it actually be 7 cups? I mean that is close to 1/2 GALLON of stock. I stopped and went online to see if I could find another copy of the recipe. Sure enough, it called for that much also. I made it as written but it as much to wet for my taste as well as being bland. If I had to do all over, I would cut the liquid to about 2-3 cups max and probably double or triple the sage and poulty seasoning. Maybe my family is use to a drier version of this recipe.

This is the ONLY stuffing recipe I will ever use from here on out. It's awesome. Stuffing is usually the last leftover to disappear after Thanksgiving. This was the first leftover to disappear. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.
