How do You Make Dressing?

I make dressing by first baking a pan of cornbread. After it has cooled, I crumble the cornbread into a large bowl and add diced onions, cooked bulk sausage, diced apples, minced garlic, salt and pepper, and eggs. I mix all that together thoroughly then spread it into a baking pan. Then bake at 350 degrees for about an hour or until it is golden brown on top.
