Cornbread Bundt Dressing is cornbread dressing baked in a bundt pan. The center is filled with a small bowl of Homemade Cranberry Sauce.
Makes a lovely presentation on the dinner table. Serve as a savory side or main dish. Perfect for holidays or any occasion.
Key ingredients are shredded chicken, white onions, cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, and savory seasonings.
Although this dressing holds together to form a bundt shape, it isn’t dry. Evaporated milk, cream of chicken soup and cream of mushroom soup add flavor and moisture.
Moist dressing is soooo good! Simply drizzle each individual slice with gravy or hot chicken stock.
Do not drizzle whole bundt cake because the liquid will soften the shape.
I first posted this recipe in November 2017. The name at the time was Million Dollar Cornbread Dressing. Changed the name to make it sound more delicious and creative. Please share your thoughts in the comments section.
My precious aunt taught me how to make her amazing cornbread dressing. It is savory, hearty, and loaded with delicious flavor.
CAST IRON BUNDT PAN: IMPORTANT TIP
If using a cast iron bundt pan, generously grease with shortening to prevent sticking.My aunt is a great cook. She never measures ingredients.
When I asked for the recipe, she said I must be “showed” and not “told.”
I wrote notes and watched closely as she explained her method while making the dressing.
My Aunt B. also makes amazing Salmon Patties with a few simple ingredients. I watched her whip up a batch and created a recipe.
She also agreed to “star” in the recipe video. Her hands are featured helping me make the salmon patties.
The recipe video is posted on my main page Facebook page, Cornbread Millionaire.
The pleasant responses were wonderful. Hallelujah! There are some very kind people in the world.
Homemade Self-Rising Cornbread is what I used to make this dressing.
How To Read & Follow A Recipe
Reading a recipe is an important life skill. It starts with knowing how to read a recipe’s ingredients, follow the instructions, prep ingredients, and knowing what equipment to use.
The following tips and strategies will help beginners or experienced cooks create a delicious dish as intended in the recipe.
Start with clean hands and organized kitchen. Wash hands thoroughly. Make sure kitchen and countertops are clean before making a recipe.
Create a relaxing environment. Play favorite music while in the kitchen. I love listening to classical or gospel music.
Read the recipe. Don’t just quickly skim it. Thoroughly read from start to finish. Visualize doing each step which will help you avoid missing a step.
If you see ingredient that you and your family don’t use for whatever reason, use a substitutions or omit the ingredient.
My recipes are packed with helpful tips like shortcuts and serving sizes which save time and help with meal planning.
Pay attention to the order in which ingredients are prepped. For example, 1 cup of chopped pecans is not the same as pecans, chopped (measure whole pecans and then chop).
Know the assumptions. For example, when my recipe calls for “sugar,” use granulated sugar. If brown sugar is an ingredient, it will be written as such in the recipe.
Figure out the timing. Check the listed “prep time” and “total time” to be sure you have enough time to complete the recipe.
Look for hints, such as the words “meanwhile” or “at the same time,” which indicate two or more steps can happen simultaneously.
For example, my prep time doesn’t include bringing cold butter up to room temperature. Be sure to include in your timetable.
Watch Recipe Videos. If you’re a visual learner (like me), watch recipe videos. Perfect for when you’re learning a new skill or just want to see how a recipe is made.
Mise en place is a super time saver. This French cooking term translates as “putting in place.” It means prepping/measuring ingredients and chopping food before you start cooking. It’s the perfect way to get organized and avoid missing an ingredient or missing a step in the instructions.
Organize your tools and kitchen equipment. Mise en place isn’t just for ingredients. Before starting, make sure you have parchment paper, aluminum foil, measuring cups, measuring spoons, the right pans, mixing bowls, and other equipment.
Make notes in your recipe. Note any special prep instructions and highlight cooking times. Make note of ingredients omitted, favorite substitutions and creative twists. The notes will be very helpful the next time you make this recipe.
