3 stalks celery (chopped)
1 small onion (chopped)
1 to 2 loaves of cornbread (prepared)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 to 2 cups of chicken broth
3 to 4 slices of dry bread or toast
1 egg beaten
1 tsp. sage
Saute celery and onion on the stove in butter or olive oil. Once vegetables are tender, add sage, soups and chicken broth. Bring this to a boil.
Crumble cornbread and toast together in a large mixing bowl. Pour the soup and vegetable mix over the breads. Mix together and add egg. Add additional sage as need. (Grandma Shirly claimed you could never add enough, but I find that 1 to 2 tsp. works well.)
Bake for 45 minutes or until done at 350 degrees in a sprayed pan.
Optional: I bake sage and black pepper into my cornbread and use 1 tsp. sage when mixing it all together.

Grandma Shirly made this corbread dressing every year for the holidays--it's now a staple in my holiday menu.
