Holiday Cornbread Dressing


This is my children’s Mimi’s recipe that she past down to me. It has served us well for 30 years, each and every Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thank you Elnora. You are missed.

Cook time: 45 Min  Prep time: 30 Min  Serves: 10 to 12


2 c chopped celery
2 large onions, chopped
1 stick margarine
5 c crumbled buttermilk cornbread (dry)
5 c dry bread crumbs
3 c turkey or chicken broth
1 stick butter
4 large eggs beaten
1 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
3 tsp sage or to taste
1 tsp salt or to taste
1 tsp pepper or to taste



1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
2. In a large baking pan sprayed with Pam combine celery and onion mixture, melted butter, beaten eggs with cornbread, bread crumbs, chicken/turkey broth, poultry seasoning, sage, salt and pepper. The dressing should be pretty soupy to start, so that it doesn’t get too dry while cooking. You may need to add more broth.
3. Bake, covered, for 35 minutes and uncovered for 10 minutes until browned or until well set and cooked through.
Last Step: Don’t forget to share!
