I know there are zillions of stuffing or dressing recipes out there but we are a traditionalist kind of peoples. Our family likes an old fashioned Cornbread Dressing recipe as mom made
We may have changed a few things but we believe that just enhances this traditional cornbread dressing recipe. And since mom never wrote it down, we may have nailed it exactly the way she made it.
One of the changes we made to this old fashioned cornbread dressing was adding a unique dried sage. My daughter and I found and tried this sage called, “Rubbed Dalmatian Sage” a few years ago and now we always use it. We believe it’s totally packed with intense sage flavor and is perfect for our dressing. It really makes a difference for all you sage lovers out there. We jokingly call it, “The sage that was rubbed on the dog”! Seriously it’s simply the best in our book. If you can’t find it in your local market, it can be ordered from Amazon right here, McCormick Gourmet Collection-Rubbed Dalmatian Sage.
This is just a traditional cornbread dressing recipe that can be made the day before from cornbread made the day before that. So it should give you a giant jump on Thanksgiving. We used our own recipe but you could use a box mix for the cornbread if you choose.
Old Fashioned Cornbread Dressing
- Saute the celery and onions in butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until the veggies are tender. Set aside and let cool
- In a large mixing bowl, crumble the cornbread and add the salt, pepper, sage and the sautéed veggies
- Add the broth to the cornbread mixture 1 cup at a time until the mixture is a thick like pudding
- Beat the eggs and mix into the cornbread mixture. Gently spoon into a large baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for an hour, uncovered
+This same recipe could also be used to stuff your Thanksgiving Turkey. Instead of placing it into the baking dish, just stuff your bird and follow the directions on cooking your stuffed Turkey.
