Preparation

  1. Cook cornbread first. You can make it a day in advance. Prepare an iron skillet by spraying it with cooking spray and sprinkling it with cornmeal. Preheat oven to 450°F
  2. Mix cornmeal, flour, salt, baking powder, rice milk, and canola oil in a mixing bowl. Pour into skillet and cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Let set for about 5 minutes before you remove it from the pan.
  3. I should add, this stuffing works best with this particular cornbread recipe. I tried it with my whole wheat cornbread recipe, and it doesn't taste right.
  4. Now for the dressing.
  5. In a saucepan, place butter, celery, and onions and simmer on medium-low heat until soft.
  6. Preheat oven 350°F and toast bread cubes for about 10 minutes or until well toasted.
  7. Mix onions and celery, bread cubes, cornbread, bread flakes, poultry seasoning, parsley, onion, sage, pepper, carrot, and broth in a mixing bowl.
  8. Place into an 8-inch casserole dish, sprayed with cooking spray. Cover with tin foil. The oven is already preheated. Place into oven and cook for about 45 minutes.
  9. To make the gravy. In a shaker jar, put 1 cup of broth, flour, and corn starch. Shake until mixed. Pour into the saucepan with the other cup of broth. Bring to a boil, constantly stirring until thickens.
