2tbspunsalted butter or unrefined coconut oil, plus more for the baking dish
1large onion, chopped
3celery stalks, chopped
8ozground turkey (not extra lean)
2tspSoulful Seasoning Salt
3tspSassy Seasoning Spice Blend
1tspSpicy Pepper Blend
1tbspchopped fresh thyme
1tbspchopped fresh sage
1Skillet Cornbread (recipe follows) or cornbread made from a mix, preferably a day or two old
2large eggs, beaten
2.5cupsgood quality store-bought broth
Preheat the oven to 400 F. Grease a 9 x 13-inch casserole dish
In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and cook, stirring, until slightly softened, about 5 minutes.
Add the turkey and Soulful Seasoning Salt and cook, breaking up the turkey with a wooden spoon as it cooks, until cooked through with no pink spots remaining, 5 to 7 minutes.
Add the Sassy Seasoning Spice Blend, paprika, and Spicy Pepper Blend and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
Stir in the thyme and sage and remove from the heat
In a large bowl, break the cornbread into small chunks (some pieces will crumble, which is okay)
Stir in the onion-turkey mixture, then add the eggs and stir them in well
Stir in enough broth to make the mixture moist enough to hold its shape when pressed, but not so much that it becomes runny.
Transfer the mixture to the prepared casserole dish, cover with aluminum foil, and bake for 35 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for 20 minutes more, or until the top is fully set and nicely browned.
Remove from the oven, allow to cool for 10 minutes.
