What’s The Difference Between Cornbread Stuffing and Dressing?

I honestly never heard the term cornbread dressing until we moved to Florida, I have always referred to this delicious Thanksgiving side as stuffing.

Technically by definition, the stuffing was meant traditionally to be stuffed inside the turkey or chicken for Thanksgiving while the dressing was usually baked in a pan.

It is also believed that folks in the southern states use the term dressing and folks in the northern states use stuffing.

Whatever you decide to call it, your holiday table should be graced with my amazing recipe, prepared from scratch, this stuffing is delicious and bursting with fresh ingredients.

A perfect side dish that will compliment your festive meal. You can make the cornbread a day ahead and use it to make Tofu Turkey.

Ingredients For Cornbread Stuffing (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

  • Gluten-Free Vegan Cornbread – my homemade cornbread recipe is amazing, and perfect for making this cornbread stuffing recipe.
  • Onion, Garlic, Celery, and Carrots – give lots of holiday flavors to your stuffing.
  • Dried herbs, thyme, sage, rosemary – you can use fresh herbs instead.
  • Vegetable Broth – make your own or use store-bought.

Tips For Making The Best Cornbread Stuffing

  1. If you don’t like your cornbread stuffing sweet, reduce the sweetener in the cornbread to only 1 tablespoon.
  2. Add sliced and sauteed Beyond sausage to the mix.
  3. Prepare the cornbread a couple of days ahead, the following day cut it up into bite-sized pieces and bake. Allow to cool and place in a covered container or refrigerator.
  4. You can also prepare the vegetable broth ahead of time and keep refrigerated.
  5. Add sauteed vegetables, and vegetable broth to the baked cornbread pieces, transfer to a casserole dish, and bake.

      Catherine, I changed the original cornbread recipe. However, I just made this one I know it yields at least 6 cups although only 2 slices are left. My family and assistant loved it.
