I don't really have a go to recipe but usually do something along the lines of : brown pound each of ground beef and ground pork along with half pound of minced chicken gizzards. Add finely chopped trinity , garlic, and sometimes a bay leaf and pinch of time. Cook vegetables until tender . Add couple spoons of dark roux and stock season to taste and simmer for about 30 minutes. Fold in cooked rice, green onions and parsley... Sorry no measurements. I've also tried a few cheat recipes that come out pretty good.

I can't recall any off the top of my head. Someone posted one last year that used jimmy dean hot breakfast sausage , a can of mushroom soup, a can of beef consommé ( I think) and boxed zattarains dirty rice(I think) you mixed everything along with a bunch of chopped green onions. It came out suprisingly good.

Dirty rice and rice dressing are not the same thing, IMO.
Dirty rice does not contain liver nor gizzards.
Rice dressing has either or.
The recipe i posted is pretty simple. My grandma would make it when she was alive and everyone loved it. After she died, the recipe was lost. My cousin, who was a chef at the time, could not replicate it. My brother tried and he couldn't get it.
I started to think of how it used to taste and came up with this recipe. My dad tried it, and he said this is the closest thing to maw maw's rice dressing he's ever had, and loves it. So i feel vindicated in getting the closest with that recipe. I know that my grandma didn't use those exact ingredients. She always bought the cheapest of stuff, and everything she made was pretty simple, but how she made it was the key, and she didn't have a recipe, just knew how to make it in her head.
