Cornbread Stuffing

1 recipe of your favorite cornbread, cooled and crumbled
6 pieces of stale white bread, crust removed and cubed
1/2 stick butter or margarine
1 med. onion chopped
1/4 bunch of celery finely chopped
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans coarse chopped
1 large red apple cleaned, chopped with peel on
2 eggs
2 cups turkey or chicken broth or as needed to make mixture moist
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp poultry seasoning

Place coarse crumbled cornbread and white bread cubes in a large bowl. Meanwhile sauté the onion, celery, nuts and apples in the butter or margarine until softened. Into the bread mixture place the sautéed ingredients along with the eggs, broth and seasoning to make a moist mixture which clings together. Stuff into the cavity of a seasoned turkey and bake along with turkey. Or place cornbread stuffing in a casserole
dish and bake 350° covered until well heated.

Note: cornbread is very versatile. One can add sausage meat, dried fruits, chopped cranberries to vary the basic recipe. Yield: enough for a 15 pound turkey or side dish to serve 8 or so
