With Thanksgiving approaching, I thought I would post this recipe,  from my mother’s first cousin, Millie McMenus Ikerd.  It was the recipe that her mother, Christabel Roper McMenus, always made.  It’s simple and straightforward.  The only thing I have never been able to figure out is whether or not Millie neglected to put down the addition of turkey or chicken broth.    Perhaps she just added a little water?  Her instructions below would make the dressing completely dry.  She used only corn bread and a few “biscuits” which were probably homemade buttermilk biscuits.  See below.
