EXCELLENT recipe! I made almost as directed. I did saute the celery and onions in the butter before assembling. I made my own Southern Cornbread (no sugar) 4 days prior and let it good and dry before assembling. Made this for Thanksgiving 2012 with great reviews from all 17 family members! I do agree, making this the night before and keeping in the fridge until the next morning worked great! Baked on Low for 4 hours for the most moist and delicious dressing ever! Thanks for sharing!
I love that this recipe can be prepared the night before. It was a huge hit with my work potluck.
This recipe is yummy....it won't be trashed.
The only change I made to this was to omit the packaged herb stuffing. I put in a pinch extra of sage and a pinch of poultry seasoning. Don't know why--but it worked out well! I added an extra cup of corn bread crumbs. This was a tasty dish. Everyone in my family liked it. Moist but not soggy.
