I come from a looooooong line of great southern cooks hailing from Birmingham, AL. And even though this recipe may seem a little lengthy, I GUARANTEE you, it's well worth it. If you're looking for the best traditional cornbread dressing that you've ever had...you've come to the right place. How do I know? Because soul food is made with LOVE!!! ENJOY!!!!
"With parents from Birmingham, I definitely felt a connection to this recipe. Went through the steps and FREAKED OUT when it didn't look like moms! Not liquidy at all, then I realized the cook time was about half and calmed down. This was a great recipe! I didn't use the hard boiled eggs, and added an additional egg to compensate. It was super rich and the PERFECT consistency! "- kareemsmith1

Heat oven to 425 degrees
In a large mixing bowl sift flour, salt, and baking powder.
Stir in the cornmeal slowly and make sure it's mixed well.
In another bowl, beat the eggs lightly and gradually add the milk and oil until it's well blended.
Add this to your cornmeal mixture and stir until it's moistened. Don't over mix, you'll ruin it.
Pour batter into a 9 X 9 baking pan and bake for about 20-25 minutes.
After cornbread is completed, remove from oven and let it cool then crumble into a large bowl
Combine chicken broth, onion powder, garlic salt and Campbell's soup and bring to a simmer
Chop hard boiled eggs and set aside
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat and saute onions, celery, and bell pepper until all vegetables are softened or 10-12 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in sage, salt, pepper, poultry seasoning, and thyme.
Combine cornbread with broth mixture, vegetables, and eggs (all 6) and pour into a lightly greased 2 qt. casserole dish
Bake at 325 degrees for approx 35-40 minutes

Rukiya54 2 years agoOk. I have tried and failed on several occasions to make homemade dressing since 1980! Sad to say that I always resorted to Stovetop. Determined to make it successfully, I gave it my all today....and it is FABULOUS! Thanks so much for this tried, true and authentic recipe.
