Recipe by Sara C

The best cornbread dressing ever. I usually double or triple the recipe and take to all of our Thanksgiving meals. As written from the official webiste.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 medium sized pan cornbread (I use 2 boxes of prepared Jiffy mix)
  • 4 slices toasted bread, crumbled
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 3 large onions, chopped
  • 6 eggs
  • 14 cup butter
  • salt
  • pepper
  • sage
  • 1 -2 cup pan drippings from turkey (I use packaged chicken broth to make ahead)


  1. Mix together cornbread and crumbled toast with stock.
  2. Be sure to use enough stock so that it will not be stiff. (1-2 cups).
  3. Add eggs and remaining ingredients.(spices to taste).
  4. Bake slowly for one hour.(350°F).
