Cornbread Dressing  Serves 12 or more

Whether it was Christmas or Thanksgiving, the smell of homemade dressing

 

 

 

always greeted you at my parent's home.  And it was always

 

 

 

homemade, no exception.  I've adapted the recipe to make it a little

 

less time consuming and it makes enough for a large gathering.  BUT,

 

 

 

this recipe is easily divided into thirds.  

Ingredients

•  1½  sticks butter (¾ cup, unsalted)

•  3 cups diced celery (about 8 ribs)

•  3 cups diced sweet onions (about 3 to 4 medium)

•  2 bags Pepperidge Farm classic cornbread stuffing (24 oz total)


 

•  1 bag Pepperidge Farm herb seasoned classic stuffing (12 oz)

•  1 Tbsp poultry seasoning or ¼ cup Lite-House Poultry Herb Blend

 

•  6 cups chicken broth

 

 

•  3 eggs

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Lightly grease a 13-x-9 baking dish and

 

 

an 8-x-8 baking dish. (Use an 8-x-8 for one-third of the recipe)

Instructions

1.   Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add celery and

 

 

    onions; sauté until soft, and set aside.

2.  Mix stuffing in a large bowl with poultry seasoning; add the celery

 

 

     and onions. 

 

 

 

3.  Mix eggs to the cooled broth; add to the stuffing mixture and

 

 

 

     blend well.  Adjust salt and pepper seasoning.

4.  Place the mixture in the two dishes making sure the tops are even. 

 

 

 

    Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour with the smaller dish

 

 

 

    ready sooner.

 

 

 

*I have started using the Lite House herbs because they are freeze

 

 

   dried and are more flavorful.  They contain little bits of herbs instead

 

 

   of powder.  Sometimes I add an extra tablespoon freeze-dried sage

 

 

   to the recipe.

Tips

•  If the dressing seems a little dry, add a small amount of broth or

 

 

   water.

•  Don't worry if you don't have the exact amount of onions or celery, or

 

 

   if you don't like one or the other.

Options

•  Dried cranberries & chopped toasted pecans (¾ cups each) make a

 

   great addition to the dressing. 

•  If you like sausage or
