  • 6 onions chopped
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 cans chicken broth
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 tbsp sage
  • 1/2 tbsp black pepper
  • 8 eggs beaten
  • 2 tbsp baking powder

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cube the cornbread into small pieces. Tear the biscuits and bread into small pieces. 
  • Mix cubed cornbread, torn biscuits, and bread in a large bowl.
  • Add onion broth mixture + remaining can of broth, soup, milk, and seasoning. Be sure to taste- add more pepper, sage, etc now if needed.
  • Add beaten eggs and baking powder. If the mixture is too dry, add more chicken broth; you want it to be a moist, loose mixture.
  • Pour into two large casserole dishes that have been generously sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake at 375 degrees until browned, about 30-45 minutes. Cooking time depends on the depth of casserole dishes used and how brown you like your dressing.
