This is a
southern style recipe for dressing (some say stuffing), because of the presence
of corn bread. The further south, the more corn bread. The further north, more
white bread. Pecans are the ingredient
that makes it so very special to East Texas.
4 cups of
cubed corn bread
4 cups of
cubed white bread (I like french, crust and all)
chicken broth or stock
1 cup dice
1 cup dice
pecans ( I like halves, slightly broken)
(1/2 cup) butter
pepper, garlic powder, sage, to taste
I used 1
teaspoon of salt, pepper, and garlic. I used 2 tablespoons of dried sage.
vary in strength from one source to another. Dried is actually stronger than
fresh. My advice is add it last, add little amount at a time, and taste it to
your preference. Don't worry about it not being yet baked. There are no raw
eggs used in this recipe.
skillet, lightly saute the onions and celery. In a large mixing bowl, add both
breads, sautéed vegetables, and broth.
Gently mix. Add seasonings and pecans. Taste for sage strength. Mixture should
fit in a 2 quart baking dish that has been lightly pre-greased. Top with one
stick of butter. Cut the butter in small pieces or melt first, then pour over
top. Bake at 350 degrees, for about 40 minutes.
You want it to be golden brown on the top. Adding dried
cranberries(craisons), before baking, is an option.
