Nice cornmeal texture but bland taste. Very plain like cornbread. Might have been better with a sweeter cornbread mix and more flavorful additives. Read More

Turned out great I did add some extra spices. I used jiffy cornbread mix and it gave the dressing a sweet taste but not overly sweet. Read More

This is a good basic recipe. I add sauted bell pepper celery onion mushrooms to crumbled corn bread. I also add raw eggs before baking to bind together. I add a small jar of pimentos for color. I add (1) cooked chicken that I have shredded. I also add half a bag of Pepperidge Farms stuffing mix and 4 pieces of toast that is broke up into pieces. I stir several times while it cooks. This is a meal in itself. Read More

This recipe was incredible! This was my first Thanksgivings dinner and I'm no chef. My entire meal came from allrecipes.com and everything was perfect. This dressing was so good it was the first thing to go. This will be on my Christmas menu and many other menus throughout the year. Read More

As the original cooks of the family hang up their aprons, I've been forced to learn and this recipe was perfect! With some tips from my mom, I did some slight changes: I used both yellow and mexican style cornbread mix (by Martha White), gives it great flavor and a little spice. I saute my celery, onions and green bell peppers. I use raw eggs to bind and no hard cooked eggs. On occassion I add shredded turkey. I'm hungry for it again. Read More
