GF Dressing

To make Cornbread:

2 c. milk                                   ˝ tsp. salt

2 eggs                                      2 Tbsp. baking powder

˝ c. oil                                     1 ˝ cups cornmeal

˝ tsp. vinegar                           1 cup sugar

2/3 c. potato starch                   1 tsp. xanthan gum

2/3 c. chopped celery                2/3 c. chopped onion               

Preheat oven to 375.  Combine milk, eggs, oil & vinegar.  Mix well.  Add all other ingredients and mix well, being sure to remove any lumps.  Batter will be thin.  Add celery and onion and mix together.  Pour batter into greased 9 x 13 pan.  Bake 28-32 minutes, until cornbread tests done with a toothpick and top is lightly browned.  Cool.  Break into small pieces.  This can be frozen until you are ready to make dressing.

Rest of Ingredients for Dressing:

1 cup GF dry bread crumbs (I used five GF biscuits dried out in a 200 oven approx. 3 hours until dry

50 ozs. GF chicken broth, approx.  (used a small can and 2/3 of a large add to as need until “soupy”

˝ bottle McCormick Sage, approx. or to taste

˝ bottle McCormick Poultry Seasoning, approx. or to taste

3 eggs or can use Better’n Eggs


When ready to make dressing add bread crumbs, chicken broth, sage and poultry seasoning.  Begin with about half the broth, sage and poultry seasoning.  Mix together until dressing is “soupy”.  Add more broth if needed.  Add more sage and/or poultry seasoning if you think it is needed.  Taste the dressing until you have enough sage and poultry seasoning.  Then add 3 slightly beaten eggs and mix well.  This can be kept in fridge and baked the next day.  A lot of the broth will collect on top of the dressing so it needs to be mixed well.  Bake in greased, large pan (9 x 13 may be too small) at 350 for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
