Mama’s Holiday Dressing

My Mama made the most delicious dressing at Thanksgiving. I have tried several times to make it as close as I can to hers and I think this one comes close. I hope ya’ll give this dressing recipe a try and let me know what you think. Mama I hope I did you proud with this rendition of your dressing recipe.



Mama’s Holiday Dressing:

4 tablespoons butter

1 1/2 cups chopped celery

1 cup chopped onion

5 cups torn cornbread crumbs

4 cups torn plain bread crumbs

2 1/2 cups chicken broth

2 large eggs, beaten

2 teaspoons dried crumbled sage

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Heat oven to 400°. Butter a 9×13-inch baking pan. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cornbread and bread crumbs. In a small skillet over medium-low heat, melt butter; add celery and onion; saute until tender. Combine onion and celery with crumbs; stir in chicken broth. Stir in the beaten egg, herbs and seasonings.

Spread in prepared baking pan. Bake for about 30 minutes.
