Dressing vs. Stuffing

I should’ve done this before thanksgiving, but getting both mothers to give up their recipes wasn’t an easy task. As y’all know I’m from Georgia, we prefer cornbread dressing, my husband is from Michigan, where they enjoy stuffing, and yes this is an argument over who’s mom makes it best lol. They both are good, but I do stick with my southern roots and prefer cornbread. On this post, I’m going to post both recipes, and let y’all decide which you would prefer (please leave your choice in the comment section), honestly there’s not going to be a clear winner, but it’s going to be fun to see the results.

Linda’s Cornbread Dressing:

1 pan of prepared cornbread cooled and crumbled (any cornbread recipe you like will do)

1 onion diced

3-4 hard boiled eggs chopped

3-4 sticks celery diced

salt and pepper to taste

1-2 cans of chicken stock


Mix all together except chicken stock, add that a little at a time until moist, put in shallow baking dish and bake at 350 degrees until top is golden brown.

Lou’s Stuffing:

4 loafs of bread dried out for at least 2 days (wheat or white, or mixed, doesn’t matter)

4-6 hard boiled eggs chopped

2 onions chopped

1 stalk of celery chopped

1 stick of butter

1 tbs each of sage and poultry seasoning, salt and pepper to taste

1 small container of mushrooms sliced

Chicken stock


Cube bread and set aside

Sauteed onions, celery, mushrooms

Mix all ingredients together, add stock a little at a time until all is moist, bake at 350 degrees until brown. **This can be cooked inside the bird as well**

  1. I am a huge stuffing fan. I have a recipe that the family goes nuts over… 🙂 I have a stash saved in the freezer for comfort eating. 🙂 I’ve never heard of using hard boiled eggs in this kinda recipe before. Going to give it a try.

  2. My mom was also from the South. She always did stuffing with bread. I like this idea of using eggs. I will def try this year! Thanks for sharing!
