  • 7.5 oz Martha White Cornbread Mix
  • 1 large onion or 2 small onions finely chopped
  • 15 oz can evaporated milk or 3 (5oz) small cans
  • 1 sleeve package of saltine crackers crumbled
  • 1 package Pepperidge Farms Stuffing Mix
  • 32 ounces turkey or chicken broth
  • 1 stick of butter thinly sliced


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Prepare and cook cornbread mix according to directions.
  • After cornbread is cooked, crumble cornbread into a large mixing bowl.
  • Add in the finely chopped onion, milk, crumbled crackers, Pepperidge Farms Mix, and Broth. Mix well. It should be soupy.
  • Place dressing mix in a large 13x9 in baking dish.
  • Slice butter into several small pieces and evenly arrange slices of butter on top of dressing. (This keeps the top from drying out and creates a nice buttery taste.)
  • Bake uncovered at 350 for about 40 minutes. You do not want it to dry out.
  • Allow it to set for 10 minutes before serving.
