Cornbread Dressing

To view my video of the "how-to" of making delicious dressing, a/k/a cornbread dressing or chicken dressing, visit this link

Here are the step-by-step directions with a few photos to follow: 


1 cup onions, finely chopped
1 cup celery, finely chopped
3 Tbsp. butter
4 eggs
6 cups crumbled cornbread
2 cups crumbled biscuits
1 Tbsp. fresh dried sage, crumbled
2 tsp. poultry seasoning
2 tsp. black pepper
2 tsp. salt
1 can cream of chicken soup
chicken broth, amount needed to make a thin dressing mixtuture
chopped cooked chicken, amount as desired, up to 1 1/2 cups

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pressure cook chicken (don't use all breasts, not enough flavor). Remove chicken from broth. Melt butter is Corning Ware dish. Cook onions and celery in Corning Ware dish on stovetop till tender. Whisk soup in broth or eggs to mix well before adding to large bowl of all other ingredients. Add broth and  chicken and mix well. Pour into dish (will already be buttered from cooking celery and onions). Cook for 20 minutes and slide under broiler for final browning of top.  Delicious!

Boss Bros.

Boss' Store was having another special day to benefit Toys for Tots this time.  I'm sitting, Grandaddy's standing as we watch the police dogs show us how they catch the bad guys. I do know I wouldn't want to be the bad guy with that dog all over me. They were great. You can see some of the antique tractors in the background. They had locals selling fresh collards, homemade barbecue with all the fixin's. The rocking chairs were for sale also. Each year at this time they put out boxes and boxes of Christmas candy for sale - coconut bon-bons, chocolate peanut morsels, divinity, orange slice candy (love it!), and just about any old-time candy you can think of. We always buy enough to fill a platter during the Christmas holidays. We love the Boss family and we're so glad they're there as friends .
