In the North they call it stuffing, but here in the South, we call it dressing. This recipe was my Grandmother's recipe, then my Mom's, and for the past 50 years, it has been the favorite on our Thanksgiving table. The recipe must be 70 or more years old. It doesn't tell you in this recipe how to make the cornbread and the biscuits. That's because 70+ years ago, it was assumed that every southern girl knew how to make cornbread and biscuits. And true southern girls still know how today. Enjoy!
