Best Southern Side Dish That Has Neither Mac Nor Cheese
No holiday feast in the South is complete without a side of corn-bread dressing. With its fluffy texture, it's almost like a savory cake, ideal for sopping up gravy and juices from a Thanksgiving turkey. The best versions get a kick from spices, onions, and celery. At Pearl's Place (3901 S. Michigan Ave.) in the heart of Bronzeville, I found a sterling example of this classic southern side. Every bite of the dressing was so buttery and rich, I didn’t even glance at the main dish of baked chicken until all of the corn bread was gone.
