Best Bayou Dressing — 14 Comments

  1. Mine is very similar to this recipe. The biggest difference is that I put chopped giblets in mine.
    Hope y’all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    • If I boil chicken for my own broth, I chop up some of the chicken and put in, which is wonderful, too. The giblets go in the GRAVY!!!

    I’ll bet this is delicious! Sam and I will be going to the house from someone he met at the local hunting/outdoor store this past year. I’m not sure where they originally came from but I’m thinking it will be an interesting Thanksgiving for us not knowing these people very well.

    I get to do the dressing each year. I make moms recipe for sage dressing. I like it moist and have never had a recipe. I just had the ingredients and taste as I go.

    We have a reunion Sunday about 2 hrs from here then dinner Thursday at our sons. So, I have got to head for a store tomorrow for marshmallows to go in the rice crispy treats for Sunday. I think one batch will have some chocolate chips in them.

    Have a good Thanksgiving.

    This is pretty much the same dressing I make every year. I skip the bell pepper and sage. The aroma reminds me of my Mom, Grandmother and Nannie’s kitchens. Hope y’all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Cuz. Love to you all.

        I’m going to prep today so it can take ON the flavor. My Gradmother would love it! She passed away . I will be in West Monroe on Monday for her memorial to be placed by my grandfather .

        • Oh, so sorry for your loss, but you are making it in her honor and memory! Very special! God bless you and yours at the memorial and have a blessed Thanksgiving! BW

    • Hi Michelle, and welcome to the bayou. I just use the recipe on Quaker cornmeal box. If it calls for buttermilk, I just make it with regular milk. Does this help?

    • YAY! I’m so very, very glad! Very smart moving controlling the salt where you can because the Tony’s is QUITE salty. Using unsalted broth is a very good idea. If you happen to boil your own chicken, using that broth and chopping up some of the meat to add to the dressing brings it to a whole other level of DELICIOUS, friend!!! Thanks SO MUCH for coming back here to let us know it was a success!! My gang loved ours, too! Merry Christmas, Michelle! BW
