Cajun Cornbread Dressing Recipe @pinch

Smoked Cajun sausage adds smoky flavor and heartiness to this cornbread dressing. The holy trinity of veggies (onion, bell pepper, and celery) starts most Cajun dishes. They are a great base of flavor. The seasoning mix has a little kick but pulls the flavors together. If you want a different side dish or a holiday meal, give this cornbread dressing a try. Thanksgiving and Christmas are just a couple of months away, so I thought I would share a recipe I make every year. I love cornbread dressing. I wish I had my mom's recipe for it, but she never wrote it down. This recipe holds a close second to hers.
