I have been making this dressing for years. I found it in one of those community recipe cookbooks. You can use your favorite regular cornbread recipe with this (but not sweet cornbread).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the onion and celery in the canola oil until soft, melt margarine in same pan.
  2. Mix with remaining ingredients except broth in large bowl.
  3. Moisten with broth to your taste (I like mine pretty wet, I usually get closer to the 3 cups).
  4. Place in a casserole dish or aluminum pan.
  5. Bake at 400°F for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a nice crust develops on the top.
  6. **May use to stuff a 10 to 14 pound turkey. If stuffing a turkey, add very little broth. It will absorb additional moisture in the turkey. Pack loosely.
