Thanksgiving Dressing - 6th Generation Recipe!

***This has been in my family for many years. My Mom has made this every single holiday that I can remember.***

Egg Bread Recipe:
2 c. enriched corn meal, extra fine
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. buttermilk
1 tsp. soda
6 eggs
3 Tbsp. cooking oil

Sift dry ingredients together. Combine eggs, buttermilk, and oil. Add to dry ingredients all at once; stir enough to thoroughly mix. (Mixture will have a rough appearance). Pour into a greased baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

Dressing Recipe:
1 making of egg bread
1/2 c. chopped onion
3 slices light bread
approximately 2 c. or more turkey broth
1 c. chopped celery (optional)
1/4 lb. crackers
poultry seasoning

In one cup of water, bring celery and onions to a boil and cook until tender (20 to 30 minutes). In a large pan, crumble egg bread, crackers, and light bread. Add celery and onion mixture. Add turkey broth and mix well with a potato masher. Add salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning to suit taste. Add enough broth for mixture to be a little soupy. Pour into ungreased baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees until lightly brown and desired consistency (approximately 40 minutes or longer).
