Mompriest asked for the recipe. Here goes!
The name is "Country Cornbread Dressing w/ Sausage," according to my mother, who was careful to get the recipe from her mother-in-law and very thoughtfully wrote this out for me and Beautiful Blue Eyes Laughing years before she died.
2 cups diced celery
1 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup melted butter
1 pan (8-9 inch) cornbread, cooked and crumbled
2 cups bread crumbs
1 pound sausage, fried, drained, and crumbled
1 regular can chicken broth
3/4 cup water
2 beaten eggs
Saute the celery and onions until tender.
In large bowl combine celery mixture, corn bread, bread crumbs, and sausage. Mix well.
Add broth, butter, eggs, and water. Toss until thoroughly moist.
Use 13x9 baking dish. Bake 30 or 40 minutes at 350.
Makes about 3 quarts. For a 12-16 pound turkey.
Note: Yesterday I used only 1 cup of bread crumbs and more butter. Much better.
