Certainly! Here’s a recipe for classic Cornbread Dressing:

Cornbread Dressing


  • 1 batch of cornbread (about 8 cups when crumbled)
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 4 celery stalks, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Optional: Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Prepare the Cornbread:
    • Bake a batch of cornbread according to your favorite recipe or using a boxed mix. Let it cool completely, then crumble it into a large mixing bowl. You’ll need approximately 8 cups of crumbled cornbread.
  2. Sauté Vegetables:
    • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
    • In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the diced onion, celery, and minced garlic. Sauté until the vegetables are softened, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Seasoning:
    • Add the dried sage, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Stir and cook for an additional minute to allow the flavors to meld.
  4. Mixing:
    • Transfer the sautéed vegetable mixture to the bowl with the crumbled cornbread. Mix well to combine.
  5. Moistening the Dressing:
    • Gradually pour the chicken or vegetable broth over the cornbread mixture, stirring gently until it reaches a moist but not soupy consistency. Adjust the amount of broth as needed.
  6. Binding Agent:
    • Add the beaten eggs to the mixture and stir until thoroughly combined. The eggs will help bind the dressing together.
  7. Baking:
    • Transfer the dressing mixture to the prepared baking dish, spreading it evenly.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the dressing is set in the center.
  8. Garnish and Serve:
    • Optionally, garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving.


This recipe makes approximately 10-12 servings.


You can customize this dressing by adding chopped cooked sausage, diced apples, or nuts for additional flavor and texture.

Enjoy this classic Cornbread Dressing, perfect for holiday gatherings or as a comforting side dish!
