Cornbread dressing

Cornbread dressing

Buttery Cornbread Dressing LOADED with flavour! Deliciously moist, light and fluffy with a excellent crispy, golden crust.

Each Thanksgiving table has a plate of stuffing or cornbread dressing with Roast Turkey, Gravy and ALL the food! Produced with optional sage sausages, onions, celery, homemade cornbread and delightful fresh herbs.

With Thanksgiving is just around the corner, the emails coming in asking for sides and recipes are extremely true right now! Our dressing is so amazing, we usually stand at the oven consuming it straight out of the pan just before it hits the table.

Even though there are many different methods to make cornbread dressing, this recipe is our loved ones favourite.

What helps make this recipe stand out? The addition of sage sausages, mushrooms and green bell peppers add even a lot more texture and flavour to our dressing!


First, you want to use a very good cornbread recipe. We have two on our internet site that we adore to use:

Out of time or need to simplify your holidays? Make the cornbread ahead of time or use retailer purchased cornbread. We put together and bake our cornbread the day prior to cooking. Day old (or even two-day outdated) supplies the Ideal texture and flavour!

An additional alternative is to bake it earlier, (up to a month in advance) and freeze it right up until you’re ready to cook! Just keep in mind to thaw it out completely before cooking.

Standard white bread (or dinner rolls) are mixed via with the cornbread to help produce the very best base for this dressing. Both breads soak in the extraordinary flavours launched from the herbs, butter and aromatics. It all comes with each other in the oven, baked until a golden crust types more than the top whilst staying deliciously moist on the within!


Up until recent many years, stuffing has been cooked within a roast turkey in a lot of households, even though dressing is normally cooked individually outside of the bird. But in the South, cooks get in touch with it dressing no matter how it’s ready or what the ingredients.

In accordance to the United States Division of Agriculture, you can securely cook stuffing inside of your turkey. Nevertheless, stuffing generally adds much more cooking time to your turkey which will dry out the meat. Each are now usually cooked individually in baking dishes.

We enjoy to serve the two to provide a variety at the table and preserve absolutely everyone happy!


Definitely! All of the substances can be mixed collectively — poured into your baking dish and covered with foil. Refrigerate until finally you are ready to bake. We put together ours the day prior to cooking — often the morning of — depending on in which we are celebrating and how a lot we cooking we have to do on the day.

Consider it out of the refrigerator at least 30 minutes prior to cooking to consider the chill out. Then carry on on with the recipe.


Dried fruit: cranberries, apricots, dates, raisins, cherries (about 1 cup).
Toasted nuts: almonds, walnuts, pecans (about one/2 cup).
Fresh fruit: chopped apples, pears (1 fruit, seeded and chopped).
Other herb possibilities: rosemary, chives, mint, cilantro.

Easter desserts

Easter desserts


6 cups confectioners' sugar

three sticks (12 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature

Pinch fine salt

one tablespoon pure vanilla extract

two to 3 tablespoons milk

2 baked 9-inch round cake layers (your favored recipe or an 18.25-ounce boxed cake combine)

1 1/4 cups sweetened flaked coconut

2 shop-purchased biscotti

1 tube pink decorating icing

2 black jelly beans

1 white jelly bean, halved lengthwise

1 pink jelly bean

1 black licorice wheel, such as Haribo


  1. For the frosting: Combine the sugar, butter and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment (or in a massive bowl if employing a hand-held electric mixer). Mix on minimal speed until finally mostly incorporated. Include the vanilla, enhance the speed to medium high and combine until smooth. Change the consistency with milk till the frosting is straightforward to spread.

  2. For the bunny: Spread a thin layer of frosting (about 2/three cup) on the flat side of one particular cake layer and best with the flat side of the second cake layer. Measure 5 inches across the top of the cake and cut down via the layers, generating two layered pieces that are slightly distinct sizes.

  3. Place the more substantial piece of cake lower-side down on a large platter or cake board. If making use of a rectangular cake board, area the bigger piece so that the long edges are parallel with the prolonged edges of the board. This is the body of the bunny. Lower the smaller piece of cake in half crosswise, so you have 2 layered wedges. Area 1 wedge in front of the entire body, with 1 flat side on the board and the other flat side against the physique. The curved side will be on best. Consider a serrated knife and round off the sharp edges on best of the head. Minimize the tip off (the nose) at a 45-degree angle. Reserve all scraps in a bowl.

  4. Separate the layers of the remaining wedge of cake. These will be the back legs. Round the sharp edges of the cake wedges with your knife and add to the scrap bowl. Spot a single piece on every side of the bunny, with one particular flat side down and the other flat side facing forward (the round side towards the back of the bunny), about one inch from the finish of the bunny's body.

  5. Combine the cake scraps in the bowl with a fork until finally mashed and then pack into a ball with your hands. Spot the ball behind the bunny's body and adhere with a dab of frosting. This is the bunny's tail.

  6. Frost the complete bunny, tail and all, employing 2 to three cups of the frosting, keeping some definition with the bunny components and frosting much more generously all around any sharp edges to give a rounded look to the bunny elements. Sprinkle the bunny with the coconut to completely cover. Gently pat to adhere.

  7. Insert the biscotti amongst the head and physique, pressing into the cake to safe them. These are the ears. Location the base of the ears close with each other at the center of the head and angle them out. Frost the front of every biscotti with some frosting. Then, making use of the pink decorating icing, frost a smaller sized strip in the center of each biscotti, going down to the place the ears meet the head but not going all the way to the prime.

  8. To make the face, press a black jelly bean into each side of the head for the eyes. Lower one of the marshmallows into three circles, discard the middle piece and press the 2 end circles, reduce-sides in, into the front of the face for the bunny cheeks. Push the white jelly bean halves into the face below the cheeks, round-sides out, for the teeth. Area the pink jelly bean over for the nose.

  9. Unroll the licorice wheel and cut 2 pieces, each and every about 1 1/two inches prolonged. For each and every piece, peel the strips apart halfway down and then lower each separated strip in half lengthwise so you finish up with a piece looking a bit like a broom. Repeat with the second piece of licorice. Tuck every single piece, with a dab of frosting, behind a marshmallow cheek, with the lower ends dealing with out for the whiskers.

  10. Reduce the second marshmallow in half lengthwise. Make 3 slits in every single half, going about halfway by way of (these are the toes), and location in front of the legs for the bunny's feet. Adhere the bottom of the feet with frosting if required.

Lower two 1/two sheets of parchment paper in half. Line the edges of your cake board with these parchment rectangles so that they form a rectangle of open space in the middle. Build your cake on the edges of these pieces of parchment. When you are completed, you can slide them away along with any excess frosting and coconut. Make sure your cakes are fully cooled ahead of you begin to frost and lower them.
