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

"This dressing had a good taste, but was just a little dry. We usually add dried bread crumbs to lighten the dressing up and I will probably do that next time because other than being a bit compact and dry this was very good."

"Thank you!! This turned out DELICIOUS. This is now my go-to cornbread stuffing recipe. I was a little unsure about the eggs, but the texture and taste of everything blended perfectly. Only thing I did different was sauté the celery, onion, and bell pepper. Try this recipe -it's easy and tastes great!!"
