Southern Cornbread Dressing


Ingredients:
Mama's Southern Cornbread
3 cups soft bread crumbs
1/2 cup butter
2 medium onions, diced (2 cups)
1 bunch celery, diced (3 cups)
1 Tablespoon dried sage
4 eggs, beaten
5-6 cans chicken broth (10 oz. cans)
1 Tablespoon black pepper

Directions:

  • Make Mama's Southern Cornbread and allow to cool completely. (I usually make this a day or so ahead of when needed.)
  • Crumble cornbread into an extra-large mixing bowl.
  • Add soft bread crumbs and stir together well.
  • Melt butter in skillet.
  • Add diced onions and celery and saute till tender.
  • Sprinkle in sage and stir well/
  • Add vegetables to bread crumbs and stir.
  • Sprinkle with pepper.
  • Add beaten eggs.
  • Pour in chicken broth and stir till well blended and makes a batter.
  • Spray one 13x9-inch baking dish and one 8-inch square baking dish with vegetable spray.
  • Pour mixture evenly into baking dishes. (I do this the day before and chill overnight.  If batter seems dry, add more chicken broth.)
  • Chill at least 8 hours.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees 40-45 minutes until golden brown.
  • Serve warm with turkey and gravy.
