There are so many good stuffings/dressings for your turkey it can be hard to choose! After tasting this delicious cornbread dressing, I was knew I found my favorite. Even my five year old son liked this cornbread dressing recipe so it is kid approved.
Cornbread Dressing Recipe:
My grandmother always liked a cornbread dressing so I share this recipe with you in her honor. You are sure to enjoy it as the savory flavors of thyme and garlic go great with the corn and turkey flavors. You can cook this delicious cornbread dressing up ahead of time or anytime because you don’t have to cook it in the bird. In fact, the turkey cooks most evenly if you don’t stuff it full of dressing (instead I throw some herbs and citrus in the cavity while it bakes.)
