Mrs. Cubbison's Dressing & Stuffing Review & Giveaway **Closed**



 
I recently got to review 2 products from Mrs. Cubbison's Dressing & Stuffing line and the two that I got to review were:
 
1. Classic Dressing
2. Corn Bread Stuffing
 
Now, it's kinda hard to review stuffing before Thanksgiving and I have to be honest and say I do most of my cooking from scratch except for stuffing! Why? Because every time I try to venture into a recipe other than what is inside the box, it comes out horribly wrong!  It is the darndest thing I can explain. My turkey is the best in the world using Jack Daniels to soak it overnight using cheesecloth, I soak the cheesecloth and put inside the turkey then pour Jack Daniels all over the turkey and cover it with cheesecloth and put in the fridge
 
It may sound bad, but it makes the most awesome turkey! The liquor evaporates as it is baking, so you really don't taste the Jack Daniels whiskey or any brand of whiskey for that matter, just the juiciest turkey and it's perfect every darn time! But, dressing, I go strictly by the box and that is that. I wish I could tell you I have a fancy dressing or stuffing but every time I try to make a gourmet dressing, it falls flat.  Either too dry or too much sage or too salty or whatever. Besides, when you throw the gravy on it, you don't really taste the dressing, it's the gravy to us that is important. So, we make giblet gravy and no matter what kind of stuffing you make, it will taste awesome with giblet gravy!
 
 
This is a picture I grabbed from Mrs. Cubbison's that shows you what a perfect turkey with dressing should look like and it looks like from what I can tell, they used their own Cranberry Sausage Classic Dressing recipe. Sounds good but without the cranberries. I don't like cranberry sauce or cranberries period but it does make it look good having the red in there.
 
 
Now, I will tell you that the one we would you before any other is the Cornbread Stuffing. I am from the south, you know. So, all of our stuffing is made from cornbread. I love my mother-in-law's stuffing the best! She takes some of her turkey and puts it in the cornbread stuffing along with a can of Cream Of Chicken soup and onions and boy does it taste awesome!  She also makes her gravy from the Cream of Chicken soup and we pour that over the dressing. Mmm, I could eat that for several days all by itself.
 
Here is what I did since nobody here was gonna eat stuffing or dressing until Thanksgiving and by then this would have been all over, I made a small batch for just me to taste and get a feel for the dressings and then on Thanksgiving I will make the cornbread stuffing.  I make it straight from the box and don't get crazy with it.  I know I'm getting my mother-in-law's with the turkey and gravy, so I just make mine plain, the way we like to eat it here. Sorry, I don't have any magic recipes. I do not cook my stuffing in the turkey either. Remember it will be cooked with the ball of soaked whiskey cheesecloth in it, so I don't think you better stuff my turkey.
 
Mrs. Cubbison's has a survey that she would like for everyone to take called Thanksgiving Across America and it is just wanting to know what you celebrate and with whom and do you help at the host's house or do you bring something you made or do you get there early and help with it all, etc. I would love it if you guys would go and take the survey and see what you think.
 
As for the two products listed above, it really is based on what you grew up liking, I think.  I loved the Cornbread Stuffing over the Classic Dressing. I could eat either one of them because they are delicious no matter what but if you made me choose, it would be the Cornbread. Because that is what is in all of our stuffing. Sometimes in the past I have halved and halved each kind and did them combo style which didn't go over too well, so I am sticking with Cornbread Stuffing, sorry, north but it's what I like!
 
I did find out that Mrs. Cubbison's also does Crispy Onions, Tortilla Strips, WonTon Strips and Traditional Croutons and Texas Toast croutons. So, they don't just have their foot in the door on Dressings and Stuffing alone, they have other great products for you to try also. Also, check out their Thanksgiving Tips because it has some serious recipes in there if you are wanting your dinner to end up magically! Also they have a promotion going on right now on Gift Cards you might be interested in. I went ahead and entered. You never know, one day might be the day!
 
I didn't have time or space to grab too much info on the company but did manage to get this for you:
 
Sophia Huchting was born in San Marcos, CA (San Diego County), one of 10 children.
 
1890 -Sophie graduated from college with a degree in home economics (California Polytechnical University), one of eight women in a class of 25. She paid her way through school with the money she earned feeding the farm workers.

1916 -Sophie and Harry got married. Sophie took her husband’s surname. As fate would have it, she would be the one to turn it into a household name

1921-Mrs. Cubbison expanded her product line to include bran crackers, whole-wheat flax seed and unsweetened graham crackers.

There is whole lot more to the story, I just don't have the space to tell it, so please, go read the rest that is in on their About Us.

Mrs. Cubbison's has agreed to let one winner have one box of their own dressing or stuffing. Thanks so much and open to the U. S. only

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.
Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
