DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees .
  • Make cornbread by mixing cornmeal, flour, oil, eggs, buttermilk and milk.
  • Stir until well blended. Stir in celery and onion.
  • If the batter is too thick, add more milk. (should be pourable).
  • Pour into greased hot iron skillet (if you have one, if not get one, they aren’t expensive and you can get them at Wal Mart. I have one I use just for cornbread!).
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until top is light brown.
  • When done and cooled down a bit. Crumble into a large bowl.
  • Add bread pieces, butter and seasonings. Mix well.
  • Start adding chicken or turkey broth, stirring and adding more broth as needed. (important: add broth until you think it is just right, then add more. It will soak up and dry out in the oven).
  • Adjust seasoning to taste. (appoint someone special).
  • Pour into a grease 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish or pan.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with gravy.
  • Note: Broth made from boiling a hen will be best but canned will work.
