Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Brush a 20 x 30cm roasting tin with melted butter. Combine the polenta, flour, baking powder, sugar and 2 tsp salt in a large mixing bowl. Mix the melted butter, buttermilk and eggs in a jug, then make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the buttermilk mixture. Stir well until smooth.
Fry the bacon in a large frying pan until it starts to crisp, then add the onion and celery and cook for 5 mins. Add the rest of the stuffing ingredients and the cornbread mix, season well and stir together.
Scrape it all into the prepared tin and bake for 1 hr or until cooked through. Cut into squares to serve.
