Each Thanksgiving I come up with recipes using a theme. Last year, I made all my recipes using different pecan-roasting flavors and different varieties of fresh basils. My Thai Basil Honey Cornbread Dressing with Deviled Pecans was a family favorite. So this year I am sharing the recipe and I hope your family enjoys the sweet flavor of this special dressing.
