  • 7.5 oz Martha White Cornbread Mix or Jiffy
  • 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 herbed Stuffing Mix
  • 32 ounces turkey or chicken broth
  • 1 stick of butter thinly sliced


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Prepare and cook 7.5 oz cornbread mix according to directions.
  • After cornbread is cooked, crumble cornbread into a large mixing bowl.
  • Add in the finely chopped 1 onion, 15 oz can evaporated milk, 1 sleeve saltine crackers crushed, 1 package Pepperidge Farms herbed stuffing mix, and 32 oz turkey or chicken broth. Mix well. It should be soupy.
  • Place dressing mix in a large 13x9 in greased baking dish.
  • Slice 1 stick of 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.



Notes: ALWAYS use Herbed Seasoned Pepperidge Farm Stuffing Mix. You can use classic or cubed.
