My sister gave me this recipe decades ago. It is tried and true. If you are considering making cornbread stuffing for Thanksgiving I recommend this cornbread. It is not very sweet but it has body and a great flavor. It is best baked in a greased castiron skillet but is also good baked in a dish or pan.
