Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F degrees. Spray a large shallow baking dish with nonstick spray.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the celery, onion, and 1/4 cup broth. Cook, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are tender and the liquid is evaporated, about 10 minutes.

Combine the cornbread, wheat bread, and crackers in a large bowl. Spoon the celery mixture over the cornbread mixture. Add the remaining broth, the eggs, sage, poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper, tossing to combine well. Spoon into the dish. Bake, covered, until the stuffing is cooked through, and the topping is browed 50 – 60 minutes.

Cornbread Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Combine all ingredients and pour into a greased shallow baking dish. Bake for approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

I made this recipe right by the instructions. This was the WORST dressing I have EVER had!!!! It was dry, had way too much sage in it and was overall terrible. Everyone at my Thanksgiving table took a healthy portion on their plate but I ended up scraping it off everyone's plate because it was soooooo bad!!!! I think I'll start using the traditional dressing. I really missed the "good stuff" this year. By the way, there is no "zero" for rating this recipe!!!!

WHY DOES YOUR RECIPES HAVE SO MUCH SODIUM THAT IS ONE OF THE THINGS I HAVE TO CUT OUT.

I wish I have seen this receipe before I made the original one. Why did you change the self rising flour to regular flour in the cornbread, instead of whole wheat flour? Wouldn't that make it even more heathier? I already use canoila oil, wheat crackers and low sodium broth. I wanted to try whole wheat flour but I was unsure of the flavor and texture change. What do you think?
