For Thanksgiving We Must Have Cornbread Dressing

Over the next few days I will share a few of my favorites we will be having for our Thanksgiving meal.  I always chuckle every year as we plan our Thanksgiving Meal as I know exactly what we are going to have.  I always ask Mr. D and he will name everything off just as we have always had it.  But before he starts, he will ask that I not cook quite so much as I have in the past.  Well, after you add all the things that we decide we want, we have lots of food.  I will tell you that we must have cornbread dressing.  That is such a tradition here in the foothills of North Carolina.  Growing up in the Sandhills of North Carolina, my Mother made a dressing with regular bread crumbs and we did not have cornbread dressing.

The recipe I am sharing with you today calls for cornbread or cornbread stuffing mix. I always use the packaged corn bread stuffing but this is our favorite dressing that I have ever made.  The herb dressing adds a different texture to the dressing and the sausage in the recipe makes it so flavorful and moist. I got this recipe from Rudy’s Farm Sausage many years ago.


This stuffing freezes well and we always look forward to having it again during the holiday season. Even though we have several different dishes for Thanksgiving I do try to make smaller portions so we can enjoy all the traditions of the day.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I make the same dressing every year for Thanksgiving but without the sausage and my mother did as well. I won’t be cooking it this year as we will be traveling down to share Thanksgiving with family and staying in a hotel. Hope you have a nice holiday.
