With an empty nest and trying to less and to eat healthily, I only cook dressing about twice a year.  But, I just mixed mine up for our family Christmas Eve dinner, and, even before baking, it smells soooo good.  So, my question is, can it be frozen uncooked and baked later?  Just wondering if I could make up a double or larger batch, freeze it and cook it at another time.  (My dressing--not stuffing now--I'm Southern--contains cornbread, biscuit, boiled eggs and raw eggs, celery,  chicken broth, and seasonings

Vivian, my family and I were just discussing this because we have so much left over.  I figure that since I make meat loaves and freeze them uncooked (and have been doing that since my youngest went to college 5 years ago) that I can do the same with dressing. 

My meat loaf base is ground beef or ground turkey and my stuffing base is ground sausage.

So I say give it a try.  I am going to!!

Thanks, Carol.  I guess it's worth a try.

They freeze dressing in frozen dinners, so I don't know why you couldn't.
