Got an extra package of cornbread mix in your cupboard just waiting to expire? If so, you’re in luck! This easy recipe uses a package of cornbread mix as a base for a delicious, homey dressing- perfect to take along to all those family gatherings coming up. It’s a great solution if you’re looking for something vegetarian to bring to a potluck and can even be adapted to be gluten free by using our Gluten Free Cornbread Mix or your favorite gluten free cornbread recipe. We suggest this recipe for GF Cornbread by Carol Fenster (author of 1000 Gluten Free Recipes) or this one for conventional Golden Cornbread. This dressing is delicious on its own, or used as a stuffing for turkey. Enjoy!
