Ingredients

  • 8 cups cubed cornbread
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 2 medium onion chopped
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • cups chicken stock
  • 2 teaspoons dried sage
  • salt and pepper to taste (I used 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 8-inch square baking dish and set aside.
  • Add oil to a large pan over medium heat. Once hot, add celery and onions. Cook until soft.
  • Add sage, salt, and pepper to the pan. Mix well.
  • In a large mixing bowl add cubed cornbread, beaten eggs, and chicken stock.
  • Add celery and onion mixture. Mix until combined. (Add more chicken stock if needed).
  • Transfer the mixture to a greased baking dish. Spread the cubed butter on top of the dish.
  • Bake for about 30-40 minutes or until the dressing is cooked though in the center and turns brown on the top.

Notes

  • Make it ahead: You can make this recipe ahead of time for up to 2 days and refrigerate it.
  • Use store-bought or homemade cornbread for this recipe. 
  • To reheat the leftover, it’s best to remove it from the fridge and bring it to room temperature first. If you prefer moist cornbread dressing, you can add a small amount of chicken stock, and then cover the pan with foil and bake it at 350F for about 30 minutes.
