This must be a North Louisiana dish, because I grew up in South Louisiana and never had anything like it. It does sound good, though.

Never heard of this recipe for dressing and I was born and raised in northern and central Louisiana. It would be a bit bland for our tastes, I'm afraid. Not trying to be mean here, but I do like my dressing.
