The holidays are approaching! Families will soon gather together to celebrate the holiday season over plenty of good food, fun, and festivities. One of my favorite memories as a little girl was celebrating the holiday season with my family, especially when my cousins would come over. I remember watching the parades in the morning on t.v. and then eating a late holiday lunch. Afterwards, we would head outside to play. We would throw the football around to each other or play games of hide and seek. The adults – my aunts and uncles, were usually assigned with the harder tasks. They were to each bring a special dish to the gathering as a contribution so that the responsibilities of cooking, which is a big responsibility, didn’t fall on just one person. This tradition made it easier on everyone and the family had plenty of time to visit with each other and enjoy each other’s company.

Thankfully after I married my husband, I noticed that his family carried on the same traditions. It’s a beautiful thing to see everyone pitch in to provide the holiday meals each season. Everyone contributes their favorite dish and we all gather together to enjoy conversations and plenty of laughs. I’m also thankful that my side of the family and my husband’s side of the family are great cooks! As I get older, I cherish the recipes that are created with love in the kitchen that have been passed on by mothers and grandmothers in the family. As a kid, it’s easy to overlook how much hard work goes into each dish that’s prepared over the holidays, but now that I have kids of my own, I can only hope to pass these family recipes down to my own kids. They will be able to prepare these special dishes for their own families as the recipes and traditions get passed down.

Southern Cornbread Dressing Recipe

This holiday season, I’ll be making a Southern Cornbread Dressing Recipe with Homestyle Herbed Gravy to serve with a glazed baked ham.  This particular dressing recipe is my husband’s favorite. He says that out of all of the side dishes that are served during the holidays, the dressing side dish is the dish he looks forward to the most! I can understand why. It is moist and flavorful and a perfect addition to any holiday meal this season. Serve this dressing alongside of turkey, baked ham, roast and all of the traditional sides that are served during holiday meals. I am thankful for my mother-in-law who passed down her grandmother’s dressing recipe to my family. She wrote it down for me a few years back to keep in my recipe box! I will be forever grateful and this will be my go-to dressing recipe for years to come.

When I went shopping at Walmart for my spices for the Southern Cornbread Dressing Recipe, I stocked up on plenty of McCormick® products to have on hand for the holidays. I know that I’ll be needing spices for pumpkin bread and pumpkin smoothies this holiday season. I’ll also be experimenting with other recipes like candied pecans and peppermint hot cocoa!

    Around here, we call it stuffing and I love a good cornbread stuffing on Thanksgiving. This sounds so good.

    My dad is such a stuffing guy, but we’ve never made it with homemade breadcrumbs. This looks delish and I always keep all of these McCormick seasonings on hand so I really should try doing it from scratch!
