Mom Sefcik's Famous Cornbread Dressing

Linda Howe


There is a cute story to this recipe. My mother-in-law was a fabulous cook. My Father was a fabulous cook & Chef. My Dad heard me raving about Mrs. Sefcik's Cornbread Dressing at Thanksgiving in 1969. He was ticked-off that I liked her dressing more than his. He spent the next couple of years trying to improve his recipe. I finally told him his was better so that he would quit trying to out-do her recipe. Now that my wonderful father is gone, I can finally admit that I still love Mom Sefcik's Dressing more than his.
