Looking for an old fashioned Cornbread Dressing Recipe like your grandmother made? Look no further because here it is! Whether you use cornbread made from a box or cornbread made from scratch, this Cornbread Dressing is delicious.
When I was growing up, during the holidays, my grandmother was always the one who made cornbread dressing. There was nothing like the delicious taste of her dressing.
Unfortunately, I never learned to make it from her. But, this cornbread dressing recipe is pretty close. And, this recipe has the benefits of bone broth.
It can be made with regular, whole wheat or gluten free bread or biscuits. Either way, crumble them up along with the rest of the ingredients and you have a wonderful side to your holiday dinner.
Tips for Making This Cornbread Dressing Recipe
1. Chicken Broth
While you can purchase real chicken broth, I like to make my own. Check out How to Make Chicken Broth and watch the video to see how easy it is.
If your would rather purchase real chicken broth, I recommend Kettle and Fire bone broths. Their bone broths come from grass fed animals who are not fed antibiotics or hormones and are slow simmered for over 20 hours.
Another advantage to Kettle and Fire is that their broths are packaged in tetra packs (cartons) without corn lining for those who are sensitive to corn. Plus, they do not need refrigerating which makes them great for traveling.
- Cornbread made from a box or homemade works well.
- Try making biscuits and crumbling them instead of bread crumbs.
- Bread crumbs can be regular, whole wheat or gluten free.
- Turkey broth can be substituted for the chicken broth.
3. Serving suggestions
- Use as a side for holiday dinners or anytime.
- Serve with soup instead of muffins.
- Use with leftover holiday dinners to make a sandwich of turkey, dressing and cranberry sauce.
