Celeriac (celery root) in cornbread dressing?

I got celeriac in my coop farmshare and hmmm Ive been baffled what to do with it. Today, I feel inspired to finally use it in cornbread dressing with our Christmas Day turkey! Having never used it before, Im just a tad hesitant, but I tasted it and it is very much like regular celery, but without the green stringiness. Does anyone have any opinion about this idea? I will probably put some normal celery in too (along with my usual onion, apples, cornbread, broth, egg, spices, etc.). Thoughts anyone?

  1. It's probably too late for any advice., but I'd just saute it up with the onion. Should be fine, though with a bit more texture than celery. I love the stuff, so that's a plus.

      I followed your advice, but before you gave it! It was very nice indeed, but subtle! I should have used more. I put 3 small celeriacs into one large cornbread worth of dressing along with the usual stuff and it was great. Im encouraged to try more things with it. That's a good thing, since I have FIVE more of these left! :D Thank you!
