Southern Cornbread Dressing is deliciously moist and wonderfully seasoned with sage, onions, and celery. It’s a classic that makes it to the Thanksgiving table year after year.
Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and it’s time to start planning that Thanksgiving menu. This year I want the food to be extra good and special since this is the first year my son has been away at college. I miss him dearly and I know he misses my home cooking.
You cook for your boys mamas, and they’ll always want to come home to see you.
2 cups chopped onions
2 cups chopped celery
1/2 cup butter
4 cups finely crumbled toasted bread
4 cups finely crumbled cornbread
1 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon dried sage
2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
4 large eggs, beaten
Melt butter in a skillet; add the onions and celery and saute until tender.
Combine toasted bread and cornbread in a large bowl and mix.
Add onions and celery plus their cooking liquid, the salt, pepper, sage, and poultry seasoning and mix thoroughly.
Using a bulb baster, add just enough turkey giblet broth to make a very moist mixture, then stir in the eggs and scrape the dressing into a large greased baking pan or dish.
Bake in 400 degree F oven until dressing is nicely browned, about 30-40 minutes.
