Now you can make your own Southern-style cornbread at home with this recipe from the popular down-home Cracker Barrel restaurant chain.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes


  • 2/3 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 2 quarts of day old, grated cornbread
  • 1 quart of day old, grated biscuits
  • 1/4 cup dried parsley flakes
  • 2 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 2 tsp ground sage
  • 1 tsp coarse ground pepper
  • 4 ounces margarine
  • 1 quart (32 ounces) plus 1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Mix onion, celery, grated cornbread, and biscuits, parsley, poultry seasoning, sage, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Add melted margarine to mixture. Stir until well blended.

Add chicken broth to dry ingredients and mix well.The dressing should have a wet but not soupy consistency like a quick bread batter (banana bread or cornbread).

Divide mixture evenly into two (8 x 8 inch) pans sprayed with non-stick spray.

Bake uncovered for 1 hour until lightly brown on the top.

Tips for great dressing:
Grate biscuits and corn muffins in a food processor until coarsely ground or using the largest holes on your hand grater. Substitute your own homemade chicken stock or turkey stock for canned if you prefer.

Yield: 16 servings, 6 ounces each

Making Cracker Barrel Stuffing, Member HappyHeartBaker

I followed the recipe almost exactly except I substituted the biscuits with toasted cubes of day old bread because I didn't have biscuits. Everyhing else followed pretty much exact. I had been told I made awful chicken & dressing so I never attempted to make it in the last 15 years. But I ate over at a friends house recently who had used this recipe & it was wonderful & she assured me it was easy. I had 20 for dinner & made this up and refrigerated it the day before with about half the broth needed. The day of the meal I used the rest of he broth from my turkey & baked it. This dressing was a HUGE hit & it was amazing. I feel redeemed as a dressing maker in my family now! I'm not a huge fan of dressing myself, but I LOVED it too. If you need one that's EASY, this is it!
