Cornbread Dressing Casserole

We just love Cornbread Dressing and this is a casserole that I take to covered dish dinners and is one of our family favorites this time of the year. This Cornbread Casserole is always a big hit with folks who love Cornbread Dressing, it is full of just the right flavors for the season with a little surprise of fruit with either chicken or turkey. It is a great casserole for the left over turkey or chicken or can be made ahead and frozen for up to 3 months.

Ingredients
Cornbread Recipe  using 1/2 of the recipe
4 to 5 slices of day old bread, chopped in cubes
1 cup celery, chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped
3 cups Chicken or Turkey, cooked and chopped
1 1/2 cup of Peas and Carrots, cooked
1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
2 teaspoons sage
2 teaspoons thyme
1-1/2 tablespoons parsley
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups chicken or turkey broth
1egg beaten
1 cup milk
Directions
Bake the cornbread and let it set out until it is very dry, usually 24 hours. Then cube the cornbread and put the cubes in a very large mixing bowl.
In a hot skillet melt the butter, saute the onions and celery, until the onions are clear, then add the peas and carrots and cook for 5 minutes.
Add the onions, celery, peas and carrots with the melted butter into the bowl with the cornbread, mix well.
Add the chicken or turkey and cranberries, mix well
Add the poultry seasoning, sage, thyme, parsley salt and pepper, mix well
Add the broth, milk, egg and mix well.
Butter the bottom of a 9X13 baking dish and pour the casserole into the baking dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes until the casserole is set and slightly brown on top. This is a very moist casserole, so be sure not to overcook it.
Option:
Serve with Chicken or Turkey Gravy on top or Cream of Celery Soup
It is great with a side of Sweet and Spicy Cranberry Relish

  2. It looks like a wonderful casserole - rich and tasty
    I can't eat it (we don't mix meat/chicken with dairy, and I'm a vegetarian anyway) but it looks GREAT.
    Loves the colors :)
