Good dressing to accompany the holiday meal can be a challenge for cooks who only prepare it once or twice a year.
The problem is, there may not really be a recipe at all. Most good cooks have been making cornbread dressing so long they know exactly how much of this or that to add and make it just right. Here is a basic cornbread dressing recipe that will feed six. I hope it helps during this holiday season.
- 3 cups of cornbread crumbs
- 1 ? cups dry bread crumbs
- 2 ? cups of chicken broth
- 2 eggs
- ? cup chopped celery
- 1 small onion
- ? teaspoon salt
- ? teaspoon pepper
- 1 ? teaspoons poultry seasoning
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine crumbs in a large bowl. Add chicken broth to crumbs and stir. Break eggs into another bowl and beat lightly. Add eggs to bread mixture and stir until it is well mixed. Add chopped vegetables and seasonings. Stir again to make sure the dressing is well-mixed. Pour dressing into greased 9-by-13 inch pan. Bake 30 minutes in 375 degree oven.
