My mother has made this dressing for our family since I was a little girl. It is the only Thanksgiving dressing my family will eat. I would weigh 500 pounds if I made this dressing as often as I craved it! Although I know most people prefer holiday recipes that have been passed down in their own families, I hope you will enjoy this Thanksgiving dressing recipe that the McWell's have enjoyed for many, many years! My mother used Jiffy corn bread mix in the old days, then later switched to Marie Calender's corn bread mix. In this recipe, I am using the "sweet corn muffins" recipe on a box of Albers Yellow Corn Meal. Because I am using Albers brand corn meal, all ingredients up to "12 Tbs butter" are for this particular brand cornmeal. If using any other cornbread mix, follow directions on the box, then add ingredients beginning with "1 Lb bacon." This recipe is for Thanksgiving so it makes quite a large amount. Thanks Mom!
