This Easy Cornbread Dressing recipe, or stuffing if you prefer, is a must for a family’s Thanksgiving holiday table. At our house it would not be Thanksgiving without it. Hopefully, it will become your favorite too.
Thanksgiving would not be Thanksgiving if there were no cornbread dressing on our holiday table along side the turkey, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes or cranberry sauce.
When I was a kid the food I looked forward to the most at Thanksgiving was the cornbread dressing. The only time we had it was at Thanksgiving. So it became extra special. It was one of the few times of year that the entire family was together around one table. My Dad had time off work and did the cooking, which was another reason to look forward to Thanksgiving because he was an outstanding cook.
