  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 large yellow onions, chopped
  • 1 batch cornbread cut into cubes
  • 12 fresh sage leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup vegetable stock or broth
  • 1/3 cup cream
  • 1 egg


  1. Butter an 8 x 8 square or equivalent baking pan.

  2. Place the 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat.

  3. Once the butter is melted, add the onions.
  4. Cook the onions, stirring frequently, for 30-60 minutes until onions are caramelized (soft and have a rich yellow color).

  5. Remove from heat and place the cornbread cubes in a mixing bowl.

  6. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

  7. Add the caramelized onions and chopped sage leaves to the cornbread cubes, lightly stirring to mix together.

  8. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vegetable stock, cream and egg.

  9. Pour the wet mixture over the cornbread mixture, stirring to combine. If the mixture seems too dry, add a bit more cream.

  10. Dump the mixture into the buttered baking dish.
  11. Place in oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until the top is browned and crusty.
