Growing up, we didn’t have turkey. We had chicken chopped and baked in my grandmother’s dressing. Now we leave out the chicken and keep the cornbread dressing. —Suzanne Mohme, Bastrop, TX

"Thank you, thank you for this recipe!! It was very helpful for the cornbread recipe to be included as it has been many years since I have made basic southern cornbread. My only adjustments were to add 3 chopped hard boiled eggs and some shredded chicken (just like my mother's recipe) and I put together my own poultry seasoning of thyme and sage. Also, I did not saute the onion and celery; just chopped and mixed in to the crumbled cornbread."

"I made this dressing for the first time on 12/17/15 and it was very moist and tasty. I admit that I had made adjustments on this recipe when I'd prepared it and I'd used a greased and floured 12x6" loaf pan to bake the dressing. Thank you for sharing this recipe, Suzanne Mohme! delowenstein"
