I made this recipe as directed and ended up with enough stuffing to fill 3 9x13 pans. I cooked one pan full and after cooking for 30 minutes as the recipe called for it hadn't even begun to cook, I had to cook it for another 40 minutes for it to look done. It tasted like cornbread mush. This recipe took 2 nights to make, one to make all the cornbread and one to make the actual stuffing. I think the amounts on this recipe need to be checked. It was not worth all the trouble. Read More

This was a fantastic recipe and my first attempt at homemade stuffing. My only complaint is that it made way too much. I halved the recipe and that filled my 9x13 baking dish full along with a stuffed turkey. Next time I will quarter this recipe but it is definitely a keeper. Very easy to make as well. I used smoked sausage because it doesn't specify whether to use smoked or ground or what. Read More

This was my 1st attempt @ cornbread dressing also. I used 2 packages of cornbread mix & it was just enough. The cook time of dressing took almost 2hrs. The cook time on recipe is totally "wrong"! 30 mins doesn't even brown the dressing. My end result was excellent but will decrease the amount of spices on next try because it was little to salty.

I prepared four 16 oz. cornbread mixes as the recipe called for and it was way too much. I made one 9 x 13 pan of corn bread (two cornbread mixes) and it was just the right amount. This dressing is moist and has excellent flavor. It makes a huge amount! Read More

This time I did follow the recipe exactly-- with the exception--that I "halved the recipe." I choose this because I wanted an Excellent cornbread tasting dressing. That is not what the end result was!! After a lot of time and hard work--my end result was mushy bland and not what I was expecting. Unfortunately my husband children and guest did not care for this. Yes we did eat some--because of all the work--and it was the only dressing to go with our Roast Turkey Dinner! Otherwise I'll keep looking for a "GOOD" cornbread & sausage dressing!! Read More

The recipe MUST be wrong. Four 16-oz boxes of cornbread is Waaaayyyy too much. I made it with four 8-oz boxes of Jiffy Cornbread mix and that was just right! Delicious with flavors I remember from childhood. Unfortunately that recipe died with the family matriarch. THis one is a fine substitute. Read More
