Southern Style Cornbread Dressing

This Southern Style Cornbread Dressing has been a staple at our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner tables for as long as I can remember!

So I’ve never been a huge fan of the stuffing that you cook inside the holiday turkey. Yes, you heard that right. I don’t like turkey stuffing. No, I’m not the Grinch, and no I didn’t steal the Christmas feast from Whoville!

Southern-Style Cornbread Dressing: Traditional and a TOTAL fave!

I still love the traditional holiday meal, but I prefer my stuffing baked outside of the turkey. One of my favorite holiday comfort foods is dressing. This baked dish is similar to turkey stuffing…but it’s just baked outside of the turkey. This recipe is a Southern-style dressing that features cornbread and biscuits in addition to chopped veggies. The holidays just aren’t the same without this amazing side dish!

  1. I make cornbread dressing every year just like my mother did before me. My recipe is very similar to this one but I can’t believe you don’t have sage as an ingredient. Is this an over site?

    1. Hey Joretta! I have actually never added sage to this recipe, but that sounds like a delicious addition. I might just have to include a little bit this year! Thanks for the tip. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Tiffany. I must admit that the pictures don’t quite do this dressing justice…but this is one of my all-time favorite Thanksgiving side dishes. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!! 🙂

  2. This looks amazing, I will be trying this. But I do have a question, is the stuffing dry once it’s cooked? Call me crazy but I like mushy dressing so just wanted to know. ghx

    1. Hey Rosie! This stuffing recipe is one of my all-time favorites…Thanksgiving just isn’t Thanksgiving for me without this stuffing. This stuffing is not very dry at all once baked…so I think it’s just the kind you are looking for! I use one box of Jiffy cornbread mix and 1 can of Pillsbury Grands biscuits for this version. I hope you enjoy this dressing as much as I do. Come back and let me know what you think. 🙂 Oh, and happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Hi David! Just poking around looking at Thanksgiving recipes. I make my traditional bread and sausage dressing, but I also like a good cornbread dressing. I add oysters to mine, have you ever tried that? I’m not a big fan of sage so I tread lightly there.

    1. Hey Dorothy! Fancy seeing you here on this way, way back post. Seriously, though, this is one of my favorite holiday recipes. I actually didn’t love this recipe growing up, but now it’s an absolute requirement for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I’ve never tried adding oysters though? Sounds a bit different, but I’m always willing to try new things! And I totally agree with you about sage…a little bit goes a long way! Thanks so much for coming back and leaving a comment here, my baking friend! 🙂

  4. Hi David – I’m not a big fan of dressing, but this recipe looks like it may change my mind 🙂 Sounds delicious. I definitely will try it.

    1. Hey Linda! You know, I wasn’t a fan of dressing at all as a kid. But then my taste buds changed, and now this is one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving dinner! I hope you enjoy this one. Let me know what you think! 🙂
