Southern Culinary Arts: a Step-by-Step Old-Fashioned Southern Cornbread Dressing Recipe

Southern Food as a Culinary Art

Welcome to my online cooking school for American recipes! Today's online cooking classes involve two Southern food favorites: cornbread and dressing. This recipe is an integral part of Southern culinary arts. You don't have to attend culinary school to learn to make it, however.

This is an old recipe for real old-fashioned Southern cornbread dressing–the dressing my mother and grandmother always made at Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you’re searching for a low-calorie or low-fat recipe, THIS AIN’T IT! This is one of those twice-a-year splurges, full of fat and calories, and rich in savory, tantalizing tastes and aromas–one of the best American recipes of all.

The first thing you need to do is to make your cornbread. You’ll need an old-fashioned 12-inch iron skillet to get the right crust. Oil the skillet with about ¼ cup of vegetable oil. I like to use corn oil for this. Bake it at 400 degrees until it’s good and hot. You can also do this on the stove top on high for 2-3 minutes. This will make your cornbread crustier. While the skillet is baking, mix your cornbread. DO NOT use packaged cornbread mix. That's one of my cooking no-no's!

Southern Cornbread Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups self-rising buttermilk cornmeal
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • ¼ cup of vegetable oil
  • 3 ½ or 4 cups whole buttermilk

Instructions:

  1. Mix together the dry ingredients.
  2. Mix the eggs, buttermilk, and oil together in a separate bowl, and add to the dry ingredients slowly, stirring as you do so.
  3. Remove the skillet from the heat and tilt it around to coat the sides with the oil.
  4. Add the cornbread mixture and bake at 400 degrees until nice and golden brown–about 50 minutes.

Old Fashioned Southern Cornbread Dressing Recipe

Ingredients:

  • The cornbread you made
  • A large onion
  • At least six cups of chicken stock
  • ½-1 cup of diced celery
  • ¼ cup of real butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • sage, salt, and black pepper to taste

Make the Stock: Now, for the dressing. You’ll need to make your chicken stock first. Sure, you can use canned chicken broth, but it won’t be nearly as good! You’ll need about 7 or 8 cups of stock for the dressing. From my experience, the best, richest stock is made from chicken backs. Place 5 or 6 backs in 10 cups of water. Add salt and pepper and boil, covered, until chicken is done. I always add a little granulated chicken bouillon to my stock for even more flavor. When the stock is done, let it cool. Remove any meat and discard the skin and bones.

Instructions:

  1. Crumble your cornbread into a greased metal casserole pan. Don’t use pyrex – most of it is safe to only 350 degrees, and I cook my dressing at 400 degrees. I like a crusty outside and a soft inside.
  2. Chop a large onion and sauté it with ½-one cup of diced celery in ¼ cup of real butter. Cook until soft. Add the entire ingredients of the pan to the cornbread crumbs, butter and all.
  3. Now add your stock. Start off with 6 cups. Mix it well with the other ingredients and let it rest for 10 minutes. Add another cup of stock and mix well. Also, add the chicken meat you got from the backs. This will add extra flavor to your dressing.
  4. Beat two large eggs and add to the mixture. Mix well again.
  5. Add two teaspoons of poultry seasoning, one teaspoon sage, one teaspoon of salt, and ½-one teaspoon black pepper, depending on your taste preference.
  6. You don’t want your dressing mix to be too stiff. If it is, add more stock or canned chicken broth. If it gets too soupy, don’t panic. Just add some crushed saltine crackers to the mix.
  7. Bake at 400 degrees for about 40-50 minutes. The edges should be brown, but the dressing should be soft.
  8. To save time, you can make your cornbread ahead of time and freeze it in an air-tight bag. Just thaw it before making your cornbread dressing.

If you have any stock left over, use it for your giblet gravy or freeze it for soups, rice, or chicken and dumplings.

Hope you enjoy my Southern cornbread dressing!!

        I like to add a 12 ounce pack of crawfish tails to my mine.. some people add sausage but I like mine this way.. I chop them up real good and it adds just the right amount of Louisiana flavour to it..

        I want to try your real old fashioned southern cornbread dressing. It says to use 2 cups of SELF-RISING BUTTERMILK CORNMEAL. I cannot find this anywhere. Is this a mix or what. I have seen Martha White's self-rising cornbread mix,but it did not included buttermilk. Can I use this. Please respond because I want to make for Thanksgiving. Thank you kindly.

        Lati, you need self rising cornmeal - or you can add a little baking powder to regular cornmeal.

        Hi habee, my mom made the best dressing ever. She used a little white bag. I know she had to add flour. But not sure about the baking powder. Last night, I came home with two things--before I read this---Quaker yellow corn meal, and I guess what you're talking about--ez bake white self rising cornmeal mix. You only have to add egg oil and milk. The other you have to add flour, baking powder, eggs, etc. So the ez bake is not good.....

        I have the cast iron skillet! I make chicken for my dogs--I boil the breasts, and save it and then use it again, and again all week. So I have broth from that I will use. There was another recipe that had way more onions than yours calls for, and it seemed ridiculous, so I am following yours. My sister helped me with the dressing before, and it was awesome. Anyway, I guess you're saying that I use the yellow corn meal? It is just yellow corn meal period! Thank you for your help!

I have a collection of the good stuff, love the corncob pans...for corn bread. Anyway I make a double batch of cornbread because I start eating it fresh out of the oven after the stick of REAL butter I melt on the top has dissapeared man oh man I'm hungry for corn bread now...

        Thanks, Rope, for adding that! I had no idea about the maize meal.

        For our UK friends: when we say cornmeal you need to think maize meal or polenta. To make "habee"'s dressing use two parts maize meal and one part flour (if you can't get self-rising flour, you can use regular flour but check the internet for the additions you will need to use like salt & baking powder). Hope this works. I haven't tried to make it with maize meal but I'm sure it will work.
