This traditional cornbread dressing is a must have at all of my family's Thanksgiving tables. This has been passed down from my grandmother and hasn't change much through the years. Tried and true southern dish.

How To Make corn bread dressing

  • 1
    Bake cornbread according to instructions on the package in a 9x13 pan the day before and let sit out, covered.

    Brown and crumble the sausage. Add vegetable mixture to the sausage.

    Crumble cornbread, add croutons, eggs and sausage mixture and blend.

    Slowly add equal parts of chicken broth and evaporated milk until the mixture is very moist. About the consistency of a very thick soup. Add seasonings to taste.
  • 7
    Bake at 375 degrees until semi-firm in the center and crisp around the edges. About 45 minutes to an hour.
