    Does this recipe really take a bag of cornbread stuffing mix and also the cornbread? Thanks.

    I have never been able to make cornbread dressing like my Mom - we have spent most holidays at her house so thus she is the dressing maker. A couple of years ago we started having Christmas Eve at our home for our children and grandchild and I had to make the dressing. I have tried all kinds of recipes and improvisations but nothing ever came close to Mom's. I tried this recipe on Christmas Eve this year and it is a keeper! Finally something that I could say was a close second to Mom's. I could not believe that it really took a bag of stuffing mix plus the cornbread so I was a little nervous but it turned out wonderfully. Thanks so much for this recipe!

    When I make dressing, I put celery, onions and lots of green onions in it. I also crumble a sleeve of crackers and toast about 8 slices of bread and crush up in with the cornbread. I boil chicken for my broth. I cook my veggies in 2 cans of chicken broth and 1 stick Parkay margarine about 20 minutes. I add that to my cornbread mixture. I also put about 6 - 8 boiled eggs cup up real fine into the mixture. I add broth until it is a good texture, not real soupy and then before I put it in the oven to bake, I add about 4 eggs beaten and stir into the dressing and then bake for about 1 hour on 350 degrees.

    Yes, it really does take all the cornbread. Sounds like a lot but you really do need it!
