My precious mother didn't have a written recipe for her cornbread dressing.... so, after a few attempts to get it right, I think I am pretty close. She always made the most wonderful chicken and dressing every Thanksgiving of my life, until 1985. Sadly, she passed away on Thanksgiving day 1985 . Our family still gathers to celebrate her life and all that we are thankful for. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we have.
