Betty Risden


1 1/2 cups chopped celery
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1/4 cup margarine or butter
2 tbsp. fresh snipped sage (or 2 tsp. dried sage, crushed)
1 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 beaten eggs
5 cups cornbread, cut in 1/3" cubes
4 cups dry bread cubes
1 1/2 - 2 cups chicken broth

Cook celery and onion in a large skillet in margarine or butter over medium heat until tender about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the sage, poultry seasoning and pepper. Combine eggs, celery mixture, cornbread and bread cubes in an extra-large bowl. Stir in enough of the chicken broth to moisten. Use 3 cups dressing to stuff Turkey rolls. Bake the remaining dressing, covered in a greased 1 1/2 quart casserole dish at 350 about 40 minutes or until stuffing reaches 165.

Makes about 8 cups.

Note: This recipe makes enough dressing to stuff two turkey breasts and still have enough to pass at the table. If you'd rather serve the dressing with a roasted turkey, bake the entire amount in a 2 quart casserole as directed. The entire recipe yields about 10 - 12 side-dish servings.
