1 pound ground sausage
2 c. chopped celery
2 large onions, chopped
5 c. crumbled cornbread
5 c. seasoned bread crumbs
2 ¾ c. chicken broth
1 ½ tsp. poultry seasoning
1 tsp. ground sage

Preheat oven to 325° F.

Place sausage, celery and onions in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine sausage mixture with cornbread, bread crumbs, chicken broth, poultry seasoning and sage.

Mix well and transfer to a well-greased 9-by-12 inch baking dish.

Bake, covered, for 45 minutes or until well-set and cooked through. Uncover and cook for 5-10 more minutes if you like a brown crust on top, and who doesn't?

Serves 12.
