My grandma's Southern cornbread dressing recipe is easy and uses only a few ingredients. Classic for Thanksgiving.


Cornbread 6 , crumbled
Stalk celery 8 , dice (about 3 cups)
Onion 1 , dice (about 1 cup)
Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm) , mince
Butter 4 Tablespoon
Black pepper 1 Tablespoon
Canned vegetable broth/Chicken broth 1 Can (10 oz) (1 can)



1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


2. Saute the celery, onion and garlic in 2 tablespoons of the butter about 10 minutes until softened.

3.Combine with the cornbread crumbs, black pepper, and broth (and whatever extra things you want to add).

4.Put all into a greased 913 casserole, melt the remaining butter and pour over the top.

5.Bake for 20 minutes.


6.Serve and Enjoy.


1.Optional ingredients: chopped pecans, diced red bell pepper, crumbled bacon, minced parsley, 1 t sage or thyme

2.This dressing is tender and crumbly and perfect for soaking up gravy. If you like a denser, more firm stuffing, add in two beaten eggs with the chicken broth and bake as directed.
