The Holidays are my favorite time of year as far as food goes. Not only do I get to cook some of my favorite recipes, I also get to try some great food made by others.

This year, I got to make several dishes for Thanksgiving and hosted two xmas dinners so I had the opportunity to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.
This dish in particular was a hit with everyone. I was seriously pressed for time with all the dishes I was making so elected to use a pre-made cornbread mix to versus my homemade buttermilk cornbread.

While I was at it, I decided to use sweet Italian sausage and the result was outstanding! And while you are at it, why don’t you whip up some of my delicious Adult Cranberry Sauce?

We had this dressing at Christmas with turkey and it was delicious. Will certainly make this with my next turkey.
