This Cornbread Dressing is perfect for the holidays or Sunday dinner! Easy and delicious! #ad
I did it, y’all. I finally quit procrastinating last night and sat down and wrote out our menu for Thanksgiving. Since it’ll just be us this year, we’re keeping things on the simple side. After much deliberation, we finally decided to have a traditional dinner. I have asked Brian about a zillion times and he finally confessed that he would rather have a more traditional meal for Thanksgiving. Of course, we won’t be having fifty side dishes and twenty pies like we would have if we had family with us. We’ll be doing turkey, potatoes with gravy, a vegetable dish, rolls, a pie …. and obviously, dressing.
Come to think of it, when Brian mentioned wanting to have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, he only mentioned the turkey and the dressing. Ha! I see where his priorities are! 😉
I’m not a huge fan of sage, so I keep the seasoning on the lighter side … if you like it, feel free to add more. Of course, you can always jazz this Cornbread Dressing recipe up by adding cooked and crumbled sausage, pecans and/or cranberries. It’s easy to customize and it’s soo, sooo good!
