Corn Bread Stuffing from Jan

Lots of folks have turkey at New Years and need a different taste. Corn Bread has always been a favorite in my home. Give this recipe a try.

Safeway stuffing mix (cornbread if they have it)
1 tsp. - Poultry season - in the season section
3 or 4 - Garlic, chopped Seasoning salt
1 can - Cream of mushroom soup
1 large - Onion, chopped
3 to 4 - eggs
Celery - Chop as much as you like
1 can - Chicken broth in cans
Mixing bowl
Sausage, as much as you like.
Can opener
Glass pan for baking
Non stick spray - prefer butter flavor
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Then, combine all ingredients in mixing bowl. Each box of stuffing will give you two packages of breadcrumbs. The amount of ingredients above is for one package of stuffing. You will need to double the other ingredients if you use both packages of breadcrumbs. Scoop dressing into glass pan and bake for 30 to 45 min.
