How to Make Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving Cornbread Dressing

This is my mom's recipe for Old-Fashioned Cornbread Dressing. We all grown up loving how our mom made the Thanksgiving holiday stuffing or dressing. I prefer dressing to stuffing, but you may also use this recipe as a stuffing if you desire. If you have biscuits use them instead of the white bread. Hope you enjoy, Happy Thanksgiving.

Ingredients needed:

3 cups white bread or biscuits, crumbled or cubed

7 cups cornbread, crumbled

3 cups onions, chopped

2 cups celery, chopped

4 cups chicken or turkey broth

1/2 cup butter, melted

2 tablespoons poultry seasoning

3 eggs, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon sage

1 teaspoon salt

Directions for making:

Step 1: In a large mixing bowl place crumbled cornbread and white bread or biscuits.

Step 2: Add chopped celery and onions; mix well.

Step 3: Pour melted butter and 4 cups of broth, you may use the dripping from the turkey in place of broth.

Step 4: Add the seasonings gradually, testing to suit your taste. You may like more or less of any of the seasonings. For some the poultry seasoning is sufficient and others like extra sage. Do your taste testing before adding the eggs.

Step 5: Add eggs when you have the perfect seasonings to your dressing; mix well.

Step 6: Spoon dressing into 9-inch x 13-inch casserole pan.

Step 7: Bake at 350 degree for 30 minutes, covered.

Step 8: Take the cover off of dressing and bake an additional 30 minutes.


You can make the dressing ahead of time and refrigerate up to a couple of days or you may freeze it.

I think this give it time to flavor the bread before baking. If you freeze let it defrost in the fridge until ready to bake it.
