"Cornbread dressing is a Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner delight. It’s also perfect for friend and family gatherings throughout the year."
3 cups crumbled cornbread
2 tablespoons butter
1 small onion, diced
½ cup chopped celery
2 large eggs, beaten
2 cups chicken stock
1 tablespoon dried sage, or more to taste
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Use a cornbread mix or your favorite recipe to make a batch of cornbread. This can be done a day or two before making the dressing.
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Grease a 7×11-inch baking dish. Place crumbled cornbread in a large bowl.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and celery and sauté until soft, 5 to 7 minutes.
Add sautéed onion and celery to the crumbled cornbread. Stir in chicken stock, eggs, sage, salt, and pepper until well combined. Pour dressing into the prepared baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven until dressing just starts to turn golden brown around the edges, about 30 minutes.
