Let's Share Recipes!

I thought that with this being the BIGGEST cooking week of the year for most USA families I would share some of the recipes that I will be making for our Thanksgiving meal. I'll start with my Mother-in-laws recipe for Cornbread dressing...

Cornbread Dressing (Julia's Recipe)

Left over corn bread (measure it)

then add 1/4 of the amount of cornbread
 in regular bread, rolls or buns broken up or cut into cubes.

Chop up 1 onion
and 1 or 2 stalks of Celery

Add to bread mixture.

Bring to a rolling boil - 1 cup chicken broth or more depends on hope  moist you like your dressing.

Pour over bread  mixture

Then ADD:
1 or 2 heaping teaspoons sage
salt and pepper to taste.

Lastly beat in 1 egg.

For lighter dressing add 1 teaspoon baking powder just before putting into a greased pan ( We use a jelly roll pan)

Bake 375* to 400*F oven until browned and set.


  1. Cornbread stuffing is my favorite part of Thanksgiving. I've never tried to make it using both regular bread AND cornbread though. I bet that makes it quite lovely.


Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to comment on my post(s).
