Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Cut corn bread into rough, 1 inch chunks. Combine with white bread chunks and toss to mix.
  3. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions, celery, and 1/2 tsp salt. Cook until transparent, about 5-10 minutes.
  4. Transfer vegetables to bread mixture and combine.
  5. Beat the eggs then add to the bread mix. Sprinkle in sage and thyme, add salt and pepper to taste. Toss together.
  6. Add 4 cups broth and stir well. Using your hands, work the mixture into a batter-like consistency. Don't be afraid of breaking up the bread. Add another cup if the mixture is dry or not pourable.
  7. Lightly grease a baking dish (anything that holds 2 quarts. I like 9x13, 8x11 works too). Transfer mixture to the greased dish and bake until the dressing has browned around the edges, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Recipe Notes

Switch things up by adding a pound of cooked sausage, or a cup and a half of roasted nuts.

This dish can be prepared a day ahead of time by saving the baking for the day you'd like to serve it.
