Southern Corn Bread Dressing Recipe

This recipe makes a rather large dish. It was made this way because of the large families it had to feed. I came from a very poor family from Mississippi and learned to stretch the food we had. This is one of my favorite holiday side dishes. –Margaret E. Kendall, McConnelsville, Ohio
