Mama’s Cornbread Dressing

  • Author: Marsha



Homemade cornbread 4 cups, crumbled

Stale bread slices 2

Celery 1 cup, finely chopped

Onion 1 medium, finely chopped

Unsalted butter ½ cup

Chicken broth 2 ½ cups

Eggs 2, beaten

Dried sage 1 tsp

Salt 1 tsp

Ground black pepper ½ tsp


Preheat the Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 175°C (350°F). This ensures even cooking from the get-go.

Sauté the Vegetables: In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped celery and onion. Sauté until the vegetables are soft and translucent, which should take about 5-7 minutes.

Combine Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the crumbled cornbread and torn stale bread slices. Add the sautéed vegetables, beaten eggs, dried sage, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

Add Broth: Slowly pour in the chicken broth, stirring continuously. The mixture should be moist but not soggy.

Bake: Transfer the mixture to a greased baking dish. Spread it evenly and bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and crispy.

Serve and Enjoy: Once baked, remove from the oven and let it sit for a few minutes. Serve warm and enjoy the rich flavors of Mama’s Cornbread Dressing!
