Recipe Notes

  • Put as much or as little sage in the stuffing as you like. 
  • You could also give it a few shakes of poultry seasoning for even more flavor.
  • If you make homemade cornbread (not a cornbread mix) for this stuffing, make sure it's not too moist. You want the stuffing to have some texture.
  • Store any leftover stuffing in an airtight container in the fridge.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Melt the butter in a skillet. Add the onion and celery and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. 
  2. Crumble the cornbread in a large bowl. Add the onions, celery, eggs, chicken broth and sage. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well. Pour the mixture into a greased 11x7-inch baking dish. 
  3. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven until golden, about 30 minutes.
