Cornbread Dressing I

Rated as 4.64 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe has been handed down in my family for several generations, however, this is the first time it has been written with amounts of ingredients rather than a dash of this or a pinch of that. It was a real feat to get my mom to measure the ingredients before she mixed them all together. Enjoy!"

Wow! I took this dressing to a family gathering today and everyone flipped. I made two pans, for twenty people, and they could have eaten three. The only change I made was to add a can of cream ...

Be careful. The amount of cornbread and biscuits the recipe called for made the dressing too dry for our liking. But with a good gravy it was redeemed.
