Cornbread Dressing ala Nita
preheat oven to 425 degrees f. 
grease a 9 x 13 pan and set aside. 
2 Tbsp  butter, melted, or bacon drippings
2 cup  chopped vidalia onion or sweet type onion (peeled and chopped fine)
1 cup  chopped celery (scraped, strings removed and chopped fine)
3 cup  crumbled cornbread, southern style, ala nita (allowed to dry out)
2 cup  crumbled "day old" white (light) bread (allowed to dry out)
3 or 4   spring green onions (small), trimmed, peeled and sliced thin
2 or 3 Tbsp  dried parsley or 1/4 cup fresh parsley, stems removed
  finely minced
2 or 3 Tbsp  granulated sugar or splenda, sweetener
1/4 tsp  table salt
1/8 to 1/4 tsp  black pepper
1/4 tsp  celery salt
1/4 tsp  onion magic or onion powder
1/4 tsp  paprika
4 large  fresh eggs, lightly beaten
5 cup  chicken stock (remove some of the grease) or campbell's chicken
1/2 cup  butter, melted
in a saucepan over low heat, melt butter, but do not burn. add onion and 
saute over medium heat for about 3 minutes. add celery and continue 
sauteing for another 2 or 3 minutes or until onions are soft and somewhat 
translucent. do not brown. remove pan from burner and set aside. (turn 
burner off.) in a large bowl or pan, combine breads, green onion, parsley 
and rest of seasonings. add sauteed onions, celery and drippings. mix 
well. add eggs, chicken broth or stock and melted butter. mix well. 
stuffing mixture should be "wet" and thick like cake batter or soup. add 
water if needed, but not too much. pour stuffing mixture into greased pan 
and bake for about 40 minutes. 
nita's note: i do not add sage or boiled eggs to my dressing. sage is not 
traditional in my family and many people do not like it. boiled eggs 
toughen and "weep" when reheated. eggs are better added to the bread when 
it is made. i do not "stuff" chicken or turkey. this is again, not 
traditional in our family. now we are told by the health department folks 
that doing so can be dangerous and lead to food poisoning. cornbread 
dressing is served as a side dish with sliced or pulled chicken or turkey, 
cranberry sauce and gravy -- either giblet gravy, or cream of chicken or 
turkey gravy.
