“A family favorite. My 71-year-old dad's mother made an old-fashioned cornbread dressing without the modern convenience of cream soup mixes and bagged stuffing mix. She taught my mother, who passed this version on to me. I believe people came to my mom's house for Thanksgiving and Christmas for this one dish! Everyone asks for the recipe when I bring it along for a holiday potluck, or they tell me how much it reminds them of the old-fashioned dressing their grandmother made.” - by candace

- Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a large baking dish or roasting pan. Prepare the cornbread mix according to package directions, bake, and let cool.
- Remove the cooled cornbread from the pan, and crumble it into a large bowl. Mix in the bread stuffing mix, 1 large onion, 2 stalks of celery, 4 cups of chicken meat, and both cans of condensed soup. Stir in 2 cartons of chicken broth or as needed to moisten the dry ingredients. Stir in the eggs, melted butter, and salt and pepper.
- Lightly pack the mixture into the prepared pan, and bake in the preheated oven until the top is golden brown, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
- To make gravy, place 2 cups of cooked chicken meat, 1 cup of chopped onion, 1 cup of chopped celery, 4 cups of chicken broth, and the hard-cooked eggs in a large saucepan over medium-low heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and the broth has reduced slightly, about 45 minutes. Mix the cornstarch with water to make a paste, and stir into the gravy. Bring back to a simmer, and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve over stuffing casserole.
