Thanksgiving dinner isn't complete without a big ol' pan of cornbread dressing!! The cornbread dressing is actually my favorite part of the whole holiday meal. I could totally skip the turkey and only have cornbread dressing and gravy. Anyone else?!?!?

This Cornbread Dressing is delicious! It also makes a TON! You can bake it in one giant pan or split it between a couple of pans. You can bake one and freeze the other one for Christmas.

I've included the recipe for homemade cornbread in the dressing recipe. Store bought cornbread isn't going to cut it in this recipe. It is the holidays. You have to have homemade cornbread. It tastes SO much better. Just an FYI - I prefer to use White Lily or Martha White self-rising cornmeal mix in the cornbread.

As I said earlier, this Cornbread Dressing can be made ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen for later. Heck, go ahead and make it this week and put it up for Thanksgiving. I'm all about making as much of the holiday meal ahead of time as possible. If you are going to freeze the dressing, freeze it unbaked. When you are ready to bake it, thaw it overnight in the fridge and bake as directed below.

This Cornbread Dressing goes perfectly with the Instant Pot Turkey Breast I posted last week or Slow Cooker Turkey Breast I posted last year. I can't wait to pull our pan out of the freeze in a couple of weeks for our Thanksgiving dinner! YUM!
