REVIEW: recipe rating
This old fashioned cornbread dressing recipe has a perfect blend of ingredients that results in a great tasting dressing. I cheated and used boxed cornbread (didn't make from scratch). My mom always pours a little bit of broth over the top of the dressing before putting it in the oven, just to make sure it doesn't get to dried out. But not being an expert in the kitchen, I didn't want to risk it. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out fabulous and not dry at all.
