Cast your vote for Cornbread Dressing

I know I usually write poetry, but I'm having a random moment. I've decided to publish my first recipe Hub. I like to cook, especially baking.

One of my favorite dishes is cornbread dressing, or dressin', as we like to say it in the South. I can eat dressin' anytime of year, and it's always a hit at family functions. In my opinion, this dish will go well with collard greens, black-eyed peas, and a big glass of sweet tea!

      @bravewarrior- sounds like it is! :) It's interesting to me that people in other regions make their cornbread dressing differently from what I'm used to. I learn something new everyday! :) Thank you for your comment.

      My family makes cornbread dressing also, but we call it cornmeal dressing because we add corn meal directly to the broth. It's a recipe my Missouri born and raised Grandmother came up with and it's the only one I use. It's awesome!

      Thanks lesliebyars :) You can add as much (or as less) seasonings as you want, according to your taste buds.
