Cornbread Dressing

Submitted by: Etha Hutchcroft from Ames, IA
1 c. butter, divided
3 c. white cornmeal
1 c. all-purpose flour
2 T. sugar
2 t. baking powder
1 1⁄2 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
7 eggs, divided
3 c. buttermilk
3 c. soft bread crumbs
3 c. celery, finely chopped
2 c. onion, finely chopped
1⁄2 c. fresh sage, finely chopped or 1 T. dried sage
5 10-1⁄2 oz. cans chicken broth
1 T. pepper

Place 1⁄2 cup butter in a 13"x9" baking pan; heat in oven at 425 degrees for 4 minutes. Combine cornmeal and next 5 ingredients; whisk in 3 eggs and buttermilk. Pour hot butter from pan into batter, stirring until blended. Pour batter into pan. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden. Cool. Crumble cornbread into a large bowl; stir in bread crumbs and set aside. Melt remaining butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add celery and onion and sauté until tender.
