Good Old Cornbread Dressing

I usually get asked around this time of the year so I'm gonna blog it for everyone that might want it!

Although I dont use measurements anymore since I've made it for 30 plus years I will do my best.
Just remember, I always make alot so you might want to cut down the amounts.

Make a cornbread with a cornmeal mix. Let it cool then crumble it in a BIG bowl.
While your cornbread is baking, Lay out about a 1/2 to a full loaf of bread to dry out alittle. Crumble the bread into small pieces. Put that in the bowl with the cornbread. Dice or chop up a couple big onions into the bowl. Add salt, pepper, accent, seasoned salt and sage. Mix it well. Keep adding sage until you can smell it! (you can taste test if you want)

Now in another bowl, add a can of chicken broth, 2 cans of water and a stick of margarine and microwave until liquidy. Pour into cornbread mixture. Repeat this step until mixture is moist! Then add anywhere from 6 to 8 eggs.
Get your hands into the mixture and get it completely mixed together! This is no time to be a neat freak. LOL

Wash your turkey real good with cold water making sure you remove the bag of innerds! Place your clean turkey in a cooking bag. Fill all the holes in the turkey with your stuffing mixture.

*** some people bake their turkey upside down to help keep the breast moist

Most likely you will have extra stuffing so set your bagged turkey in the pan and start placing the rest of the stuffing all around the turkey. When your done, gather the end of the bag and blow it up. Put the bag tie on then don't forget to poke a couple small holes in the top of the bag!

Place in the oven and cook as directed! It should be delicious, if not, don't blame me! LMAO

*Let me know if you try it and how you liked it!
