Need a new dressing for your holiday dinner? Try this Southern cornbread dressing. It's an easy, no-frills, delicious recipe. The seasoning is in perfect proportion to the dish and is filled with Thanksgiving flavors. Cooking the fresh onions and celery add more flavor too. Teresa does not include a recipe for cornbread so use your favorite recipe. We used a boxed mix for this recipe and the results were great (and it was easy to prepare). A nice addition to any holiday menu.
