“This recipe has been in my family for over 40 years. It is easy to make and delicious. I have added a few ingredients to the original recipe and it tastes even better. This makes enough to feed a crowd, so you may want to half the recipe. Just a simple delicious cornbread stuffing. You can freeze any left-overs if there is any left... just thaw and re-heat covered with foil @ 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until heated through. Also good re-heated in the microwave.”
