I bake this roughly 12 times a year and folks say it's the best thing I make!



32 ounces dry cornbread mix

1/2 cup melted butter

6 chopped hard-boiled eggs

1 diced onion

1 clove garlic, minced

1 diced celery stalk

1 teaspoon rubbed sage

28 ounces chicken broth

2 cups turkey stock

Salt and pepper to taste


Sauté the celery and onion until tender and translucent.

Prepare the cornbread as per the package instructions, let it cool, then crumble it.

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

In a large mixing bowl, combine the crumbled cornbread, sautéed celery, onion, melted butter, and chopped eggs. Mix gently.

Season the mixture with salt, pepper, and sage.

Gradually add the chicken and turkey broth, a cup at a time, until the mixture is moistened but not overly wet.

Place the dressing in a Dutch oven or stuff it inside a turkey cavity for baking.

Bake for about 1 hour, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 175°F (80°C).
