Southern corn bread isn't sweet.....up north we added a lot of sugar to corn bread....and I always thought it was good ....but southern corn bread is less like a cake or muffin and is "savory", exactly and perfect for stuffing....altho I prefer sage bread stuffing (with a raw egg mixed into it before it goes in the bird, because that is the way my mother made hers.)

I use:
Cornbread
Boil turkey or chicken, shred it, and use the stock in the dressing.
Diced bell pepper
Diced onion (regular and green)
Diced celery
Butter
Sage
One medium jar of pimento, drained
Diced eggs
Salt and pepper
__

This is the dressing that my mother makes. I'm sure her mother, her mother's mother, etc all followed this same recipe. I'm also born and raised in the south and I've never had sweet dressing. Watery? Soupy? Just plain wrong and bad? Sure. But not sweet.

back to version 2.

add chopped veggies, pecans, raisins, chopped meat, and hand crush tomatoes in bowl
add, while mixing, enough broth to make "batter'.
add salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cumin to taste
1/2 cup B sugar, adjust for sweetnes. Just sweet enougn to mellow out the seasoning.

Stuff in bird and plenty around bird

the crusty edges are fought over more than the drumstick.

My mom never does that and no one else I know. However my grandmother used to that and instead of the Pepperidge farm bread cubes she used white bread. We hated her stuffing because it was think and pasty and gummy. I will gladly share my mom's recipe. I posted it on here but can't find it LOL

3 Pkgs of pepperidge farm cubed herb seasoned stuffing mix
1 onion chopped
1 celery stalk chopped
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
2-3 small cans college inn chicken broth
1 stick of butter
1 can sliced button mushrooms chopped.
1 pkg of frozen breakfast sausage thawed (we use Jones but you can use Jimmy dean or another brand you like)

Saute celery and onions in butter until soft and tender. Put into a small bowl for later. Saute and chop up the sausage roll until browned and fully cooked. Reserve this mixture as well. Heat broth until luke warm, add to bread mixture and toss. Add celery and onion mixture and sausage to bread mixture, add poultry seasoning. Mix all together until well blended and moist. The stuffing should not be dry, if it is add a little more broth. My mom also add some additional onion powder as well about 1 Tbsp. You can stuff your turkey with it or bake it seperately

Leftover cornbread

Melted butter
Water (or broth)
Poultry seasoning (a mixture of dried: parsley, sage, rosemary, marjoram, onion, pepper and salt)

Then taste!

Add additional seasonings to get it right:

Poultry seasoning
Sage
