    I love your combo of cornbread and focaccia in your dressing Jenna! I could happily sit down to a plate of it, no turkey or ham required 🙂

  2. Jenna, I have always wanted to add sausage to my dressing…but the hubby says leave it alone! I will definitely make this for a cold January night! I love focaccia and this sounds so yummy! My family won’t let me change the traditional for Christmas but would welcome this recipe any other time! Happy Tuesday!

    • Ha ha, I totally understand! You should be flattered they insist on your wonderful recipe! My husband is very unadventurous in the food world, but doesn’t stand a chance around her, as my son and I are always changing things 🙂 Happy week! >

    Hi Jenna, Sounds like a really great recipe for dressing. I always want to try a new one but I always end up making our traditional cornbread recipe that everyone expects.
    It’s getting close and I still have a lot to do. Enjoy your holidays, you are always an inspiration!
