Here are a few tips on how to make the best Southern, Old Fashioned Cornbread Dressing

  1. Use homemade cornbread. Cornbread is the base of cornbread dressing so it’s important that it tastes great. It’s so easy to make a good buttery, buttermilk cornbread from scratch. Most store mixes contain sugar anyway. If you need a cheat then let that come in with using rotisserie chicken, pre-chopped veggies, or store-bought chicken broth.
  2. Use a flavorful chicken broth/stock and add the chicken broth a little at a time to get a wet but not extra soupy texture. May Southern-style dressings are usually very moist yet firm enough to keep it’s shape when plated. Creating a wet texture will keep the dressing from drying out in the oven and give it that classic moist texture.
  3. TASTE, TASTE, TASTE! Before adding the eggs, adjust your spices to perfection. Your dressing mix should taste exactly the way you want your finished dressing to taste. Once satisfied mix in the eggs.
  4. Stir only as much as needed. Sometimes if you stir the dressing too much it will break down the cornbread crumb and give the dressing a mushy texture.

Ok that’s it I’ll hush. Go make cornbread dressing.
