Cornbread Dressing


This cornbread and biscuit dressing 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. Getting my mom to measure the ingredients before she mixed them all together was a real feat. Enjoy!
