1 cup butter
1-1/2 cups chopped celery
1-1/2 cups chopped filberts

1-1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
6 cups finely broken day-old cornbread
4 cups coarse crumbs of day-old bread

1. Sauté onions in butter, until limp. Add celery, filberts, salt pepper and marjoram. Turn onion mixture over breads. Add cheese: sprinkle with wine and toss to mix thoroughly. Spoon stuffing lightly into bird, filling it about 3/4 full. (Bake remaining stuffing in an uncovered shallow baking dish.)
