I have been making dressing for almost 40 years. One egg only and chicken broth until about the consistency of cornbread before it is baked. All those eggs will make lumped gooey dressing. It should be light and fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside

I have been making cornbread dressing for 55yrs and make it basically the same way but I use fewer eggs and half the bread. I also make fresh cornbread. I also use sage and chicken broth. I have used the chicken but not always. Everyone has their own way of making dressing so whatever way your family likes is best. I get ideas from several sources. This year I will add the cream of chicken soup.

I only use fresh, homemade cornbread, NO flour added and no regular bread.
