  • Skillet or large sauté pan

  • Stuffing
  • 1 ½ cups stale bread cubes or dry stuffing cubes
  • Cornbread
  • ½ cup 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 cup onion chopped
  • 1 cup 3-4 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 ½ - 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper


Preparing Cornbread

  • Prepare cornbread 1-2 days ahead
  • Be sure cornbread is dry, if not, cut into 1 inch cubes and spread on baking sheet
  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees F 
  • Dry cornbread in oven for 30-45 minutes, toss every 10-12 minutes 


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Coat 13x9 baking dish with cooking spray
  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat
  • Add chopped onions and celery to melted butter and cook until soft 
  • Remove from heat
  • Add seasonings and mix well  
  • Add cornbread and stuffing cubes to very large mixing bowl
  • Add onion mixture and mix well
  • Lightly beat eggs and add to cornbread mixture, mix well
  • Gradually add broth to cornbread mixture and stir with each addition ** see notes
  • Spread dressing mixture into prepared baking dish
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown
  • Remove from oven and serve immediately


  • Use day-old bread. This will help to create a drier stuffing that won't be soggy.
  • Cut the bread into uniform cubes. This will help to ensure that the stuffing cooks evenly.
  • Add enough moisture to the stuffing so that it is moist but not soggy. A good rule of thumb is to add 1 cup of liquid for every 4 cups of dry bread cubes.
  • Store leftover bread crumbs in an airtight container. Store leftover stuffing in an airtight container in the refrigerator and enjoy within 2-3 days.
