Corn Bread Stuffing

This sturdy corn bread works well in stuffing.

Serves 10

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 50 min.


  • 2 cups cornmeal, preferably stone-ground
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups skim or low-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoon canola oil, divided
  • 2 cups chopped onions, (2 medium)
  • 2 cups chopped celery, (4 large stalks)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 1/2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 2

Combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder and 2 teaspoons salt in a large bowl and mix well. Whisk together egg, milk and 1 1/2 tablespoon oil in another large bowl; add to the dry ingredients and stir just until evenly moistened. Turn the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan on a rack. Cut into 1-inch cubes.

Step 3

Heat the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and celery and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and add the cubed corn bread and parsley; toss to mix. Slowly add broth, tossing until the corn bread is well moistened. Season with salt and pepper.
