Cornbread Dressing

Cornbread Dressing

This will make a THICK, heaped dressing. Feel free to use 2 baking dishes and FREEZE one! Just thaw in fridge over night and start at step 5 to bake.



  • DOUBLE recipe of Old Fashioned Corn Bread with herb add-ins (Recipe follows), cooled
  • 1-2 cups preferred flavor stock/broth
  • 1 bag/2 cups frozen seasoning blend (or equivalent amount of onions, bell peppers, and celery), sautéed in light olive oil
  • 2 eggs, well beaten

Directions (put gloves on and use your hands… it’s SO much easier!):

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Cut corn bread into large chunks and crumble lightly in a large bowl.
  3. Add in seasoning blend, eggs, and enough broth/stock to make a moist but not wet dressing. Mix well.
  4. Gently pat into a 13×9 baking dish, liberally coated with non-stick spray.
  5. Cover tightly with foil and bake at 350° for 30 minutes; then remove foil and bake until top is slightly crispy and browning.

    Update to this recipe, faithful few.

    1. I now add the herb seasonings to the cornbread recipe, as well as the sauted seasoning blend, and bake it in.
    2. Then I cube and dry the bread with a towel over it overnight in the fridge..
    3. Then I start at step 3, minus seasoning blend.

    the herbs really permeate the bread and ithe flavor goes up 10,000x!!
