This is how my family has made Cornbread stuffing for chicken and turkey for several generations. My French Grandma Amanda Jane Pevytoe learned it from her family in Louisiana. She taught it to my mother who taught it to me. My grandma used biscuits instead of white bread. I use some whole wheat too. We do not really put it inside of the fowl. This is really Sunday supper for us.
