Southern Cornbread Dressing Recipe Tips & Ticks

  • Be sure to use Jiffy Cornbread Mix, nothing else tastes the same.
  • Don’t overcook the cornbread
  • Set a timer for the dressing and take it out when it is done. It will need a little time to stiffen but you don’t want to over cook it.
  • Try to cut up the onion and celery as small as you can to avoid biting into chunks of it. You can even use a blender or food small processor to achieve small bits.
  • I use Swanson’s Chicken Broth and McCormick Seasonings.
