* Cook the biscuits and cornbread the day before you are to make this dressing

* Cook the biscuits till well browned. Prepare the cornbread as directed, and cook it till it is well browned also. Crumble the cooled biscuits and cornbread together into a large bowl, cover and refrigerate over night.

* When adding chicken broth to the cornbread mixture, add a little at a time so it doesn't get too mushy

* Next Day:

  1. Add the rest of the ingredients to the cornbread mixture, stirring. You want the dressing to have enough broth so it won't be dry, but will have just a little bit of broth in the bottom of the bowl.
  2. Pour into a 9"x 13" baking dish and cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes @ 350.
  3. Remove the foil and return to oven for an additional 15 minutes till lightly browned.
