Melt butter in a skillet; add the onions and celery and sauté until tender.
Combine toasted bread and cornbread in a large bowl and blend.
Add onions and celery plus their cooking liquid, the salt, pepper, sage, and poultry seasoning, and blend thoroughly.
Using a bulb baster, add just enough turkey broth to make a really moist mixture, then stir in the eggs and scrape the dressing into a large greased baking dish.
Bake in 400°F oven until dressing is nicely browned, about 30-40 minutes.
