Ingredients:  
Corn Bread (see below for special recipe)
1/2 lb crackers (saltine)
1 bunch celery, very finely chopped
1 bunch green onions, finely chopped - blades and all
3 T chicken bouillon powder
1/2 cup margarine
Chicken or Turkey broth
1 lb fried breakfast sausage, crumbled

Directions:
Directions:
For Corn bread: 4 cups self rising corn meal mix or 3 cups corn meal and 1 cup self rising flour. Add to 6 large (or 8 medium) eggs. Beat well. Add enough milk to make it a good mixture. Pour into a pre-heated sheet cake pan that has been well greased. Bake at 450 F until done but do not over brown. Corn bread will be heavy.

Dressing: place chopped celery and onions in a sauce pan with margarine and just enough water to cover the vegetables. Cook until tender. Approx. 30 minutes.

Crumble up cornbread and crackers. Add all ingredients in a very large container. Mix together well. You may need to use a potato masher and mash. Put in lots of black pepper. If it doesn't taste seasoned enough put in more bouillon mix. Put can broth if needed. You want the dressing to be kind of soupy. Should not need salt. Put in large roasting pan and bake at 425 F for about 30 minutes. Bake uncovered. Cook until desired dryness. It is better if it is not too dry.

Personal Notes:
This the best dressing ever. And don't add sage, it will only mess up the flavor.
