  • 2

    Transfer dried cornbread cubes to a large mixing bowl. Add the pecans.

    • 1 1/4 Cup

    Without wiping out the skillet, melt the butter. Add the onion and celery and cook until the vegetables have softened, about 8 to 10 minutes.

    • 3/4 Cup butter

    • 2 Cup Sweet Onion

    • 1 1/2 Cup celery

  • 5

    Stir in the parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper, and paprika. Pour over the cornbread and don't stir. Stir in the parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper, and paprika. Pour over the cornbread and don't stir.

    • 1/2 Cup parsley, minced

    • 1 Tablespoon Thyme, minced

    • 2 Teaspoon Salt

    In a small mixing bowl, beat the eggs together with the milk. Add the chicken broth.

    • 1 1/2 Cup milk

    • 1 1/2 Cup chicken broth

  • 7

    Pour the egg mixture over the cornbread mixture and stir gently to combine. Add more chicken broth if needed; you want the mixture to be moist, but not soggy.

  • 8

    Butter a 9" x 13" baking pan or large casserole dish. Tip the stuffing mixture into the dish.

  • 9

    When ready to cook, set the temperature to 325℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

  • 10

    Arrange the baking dish on the grill grate and bake the stuffing until it is lightly browned and slightly crusty on top, about 50 to 60 minutes.
