  • 18 to 24 oz. prepared cornbread -cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 large onion -chopped
  • 4 stalks of celery -sliced
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 ¼ to 2 3/4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 3 medium apples -chopped


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spread cornbread onto two rimmed baking sheets and bake until dry and golden, about 15 minutes.
  • In the meantime, heat the oil and butter in a 3 quart sauce pot over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, salt, and pepper and sauté until slightly tender and translucent (about 5 minutes).
  • Stir in 2 ¼ cups of the broth and the apples. Remove the pot from the heat and add in the cornbread. Mix to moisten the cornbread. If the mixture seems a little dry, add more broth at this stage.
  • Spoon the mixture into a large baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake until top is golden, about 20-25 minutes.
