Add 1 cup cornbread stuffing mix, or crumbled cornbread,  and beaten eggs.  Add more cornbread stuffing mix or cornbread, as needed to make a mixture that is still a little moist.

Roll into walnut size balls, they will be moist,  and place on a greased cookie sheet.  Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 8 minutes. Turn pan around and cook another 5 -10 minutes.  They should be firm, with a tiny give when done.  As always, my oven cooks different than yours…adjust time accordingly.
