This stuffing is the perfect recipe for anyone who is craving a good old fashion Thanksgiving meal.

What is the Difference Between Dressing and Stuffing?

You will hear these recipes called stuffing or dressing. It is essentially the same food it just takes on a different name depending on how it is made. With stuffing, the whole mixture is put into the body cavity of the turkey or chicken or other bird being cooked. When the mixture is cooked in a casserole dish, it is referred to as dressing. These days the terms are used interchangeably.

Once you have made this sage stuffing if you have leftovers, be sure to store the leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The stuffing will stay good, as long as it is properly stored, for up to 4 days. After that point, you should not eat the southern cornbread dressing.

Can Cornbread Dressing Recipe be Frozen

What is great about this recipe for Cornbread Dressing, is that it can be frozen. This is a great way to keep leftovers from going bad after you have it for dinner. As soon as possible, you will want to move the cornbread dressing to an airtight container or a freezer bag. Then place it in the freezer. The dressing will stay fresh for up to 3 months in the freezer.

Another option for freezer cornbread stuffing is to make it ahead of time for the big dinner. This will remove the mad rush to get ready for holidays. Make the stuffing, all the way through baking, and freeze it when it has cooled. This will let you have fresh stuffing when you are ready for it for dinner.

How to Reheat Southern Cornbread Dressing

When you are ready to reheat this stuffing you can heat it in the microwave or in the oven. When I am reheating this as individual servings, I like to heat it in the microwave. When I make it ahead, I will reheat the entire casserole dish in the oven.

    Where’s the corn?!! I’m reading along and I’m guessing this is a GF recipe? I never realized corn meal has gluten in it. But does it? I’m confused. The stuffing sounds great overall, I just like the flavor of corn when making a corn bread-based stuffing. It really goes well with Italian sausage and a bit of cream…
