There's no reason why cornbread stuffing should be any more or less flavorful than bread stuffing. I'd guess the culprit was the recipe.

This sounds like my stuffing but I toast the bread. The morning is spent toasting and tearing while the neck and giblets are boiling on the stovetop to make good stock. I just love the smells that come out of the kitchen on and around Thanksgiving.

My husband just loves cornbread stuffing. When I make that kind I start with crumbling up the cornbread and leaving it on the counter to dry out a bit before making the stuffing. It seems to work for me.

I love oysters, just not in my stuffing.
