MS. EVELYN'S CORNBREAD DRESSING
Whenever any of her 5 kids would ask her for the recipe she would tell us - we would make it and it NEVER came out like hers.
So my brother and his wife decided that they would watch her make it and write down everything she did.
This is as close as we have ever been able to get to it.
Mom tried one year to cut corners and she used Jiffy Cornbread mix - BAD MISTAKE.. None of us would eat it.. So word to the wise - don't cut corners. LOL
