Prepare Double Corn Bread a day or two in advance or have frozen up to 6 months. Break up into large chunks about the size of very large croutons. Place in shallow baking dish and cover loosely with clean towel. Let dry for 1 or 2 days.

Roll dried pieces into crumbs between your hands in a large bowl. Melt butter in large skillet. Sauté onions and celery until almost soft, about 5 minutes. Add red pepper. Sauté another 5 minutes and add minced garlic during the last minute of frying. Next add sautéed vegetables and all remaining ingredients to crumbs in large bowl. Mix until well blended. Add salt & pepper to taste. Cool.
