  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium. Add bell pepper, onion and seasoned salt; cook until tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Add rosemary, thyme, sage, poultry seasoning and black pepper.

  • In a large bowl, combine cornbread, vegetable mixture and enough stock to moisten. Transfer to prepared dish. Cover with foil and bake until heated through and edges are crisp, 35 to 40 minutes, removing foil after 20 minutes. If desired, garnish with thyme.

*PREP TIP

To dry bread cubes, spread cornbread cubes in two 15×10-inch baking pans. Bake in a 300° oven 10 to 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Or, cover pans lightly with paper towels; let stand overnight.
