The BEST Cornbread Dressing

Kris Pereira


I've eaten quite a bit of good southern cornbread dressing in my time, but have to give credit to an Italian friend of mine who shared this recipe with me, My Yankee husband and in-laws love it. : )

I like it because it is very moist.

How to Make The BEST Cornbread Dressing


  1. Make cornbread the day before you make the dressing.
    I use Martha White's recipe on the bag of her cornmeal.Allow to cool then crumble well. Place in a large bowl.
  2. Add all the ingredients EXCEPT one can of chicken broth. Mix well with hands.
    IMPORTANT any chicken broth will do, just make SURE you use the correct amount of broth. Swanson's cans are larger.
    Cover with tinfoil and refridgerate overnight. Important step!
  3. The next day add the other can of chicken broth. Mix well. It should be the consisteny of cake batter.
    Cover with foil.
    Place in re-heated 350 degree oven.
    Bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The center of the cornbread should not be wet.
