Southern Cornbread Dressing

This recipe, one of my favorite holiday side dishes, makes a lot. It's perfect for company, even though it started as a way to stretch the food we had for our large family. —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!!
