Our Family's Favorite Thanksgiving Dressing Recipe

It’s almost Feast day! Today I am going to share my family’s Southern Thanksgiving Dressing Recipe with my readers. I find it so fascinating almost every family has its own Turkey Dressing/Stuffing recipe handed down from generation to generation.

I grew up with one recipe that was perfected by my mom and is now a staple of my own family during the holidays. We love this soft but crunchy breading filled with warm yummy veggies.

This stuffing with cream of celery is the perfect sidekick to roasted turkey breast. It just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving Day around here without this southern dressing! Here’s our family’s homestyle dressing version! Enjoy!

    Hi! Can this be made the night before and cooked on the day of?

    1. Hi Michelle,
      I have not tried to make it the night before. You absolutely could cook it and reheat it the next day and it will be fine. If you are making it ahead to bake it the next day, you don’t want it to be too dry before cooking and I am not sure if would dry out too much overnight in the refrigerator. If you try it let me know. :)

  2. Suzanne Reitz says:

    This sounds delicious! If we omit the mushrooms, do you have a suggestion of how to adjust the liquid/broth? Thank you for sharing your family recipe!

    1. Hi Suzanne,
      If you omit the mushrooms everything else stays the same. I changed the amount of chicken broth to 2 cups. I usually just make this by consistency. You do not want it too dry or too runny and gooey, but moist. I hope this helps.

  3. Jane Shields says:

    Please advise on cams of soup. One direction says Cream of mushroom and cream of chicken. Then a cream of celery is in the actual directions?
    Also my bags of Pepperidge Farm stuffing are 12 oz and the recipe calls for 14 oz bags…does it matter?
    So excited about making this. Please respond promptly.
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Jane, Your questions about my dressing recipe. I only have one recipe and it says cream of chicken, mushroom and celery soup. I am not sure where you are seeing it without the celery soup in the post. As long as the herb and cornbread are one to one it should be fine.1 herb to 1 cornbread mix. I always have to add chicken broth to keep it moist. Using a couple of ounces of chicken broth less should be fine. 
      I moved this year and now I can not find the Pepperidge Farm dressing mix so I am improving with this recipe this year too. I hope this helps.
      Best, Kim
