My absolute favorite side dish at Thanksgiving is the dressing (or stuffing). Forget the turkey, I head straight for the dressing!
I have been on a major corn bread kick lately, so I thought I would give Homemade Corn Bread Dressing a try, and it was definitely worth it.
I loved the flavor that the corn bread gave this dressing. It will definitely be on our Thanksgiving menu this year.
How to make Homemade Corn Bread Dressing:
This Homemade Corn Bread Dressing will be the star of your holiday dinner. Sweet, crumbled corn bread soaks up all the seasonings and flavor so every bite is out of this world.
Step 1: Start by preparing a 16 ounce package of corn bread according to the package directions. I followed the directions to make my corn bread in a 9×13-inch baking pan.
Step 2: After your corn bread has cooked and cooled, crumble it up into pieces and set it aside.
Step 3: Add some butter to a large skillet over medium heat and saute celery and onion for a few minutes until the vegetables are just tender.
Step 4: In a large bowl, mix together the sauted vegetables, crumbled corn bread, eggs, chicken stock, sage and some salt and pepper. Carefully fold everything together until well combined.
Step 5: Spread the dressing mixture in a 9×13-inch baking pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
Step 6: Bake at 350 degrees F. for 35-40 minutes, or until it is cooked through. You don’t want your dressing to be undercooked, so be sure the center of it is set up when you take it out of the oven.
Look how light and fluffy that dressing is!
