Corn Bread Stuffing w/Bacon

Wendy Rusch


Years ago I had corn bread stuffing. Hated it! Even though I love anything with corn meal it seemed.
Well, I came across a recipe for corn bread stuffing that sounded intriguing. So, I looked at many more recipes... took what I liked about them and discarded what I didn't. Creating this one!..
Hopefully everyone at the thanksgiving table likes it too. It tastes amazing!!!
