I am not a good cook but I love Thanksgiving dressing. I would like to request a recipe for what I believe is called cornbread dressing. Any dressing ideas or recipes you would like to submit would be great.
Lous from Oklahoma
One of my favorite is this recipe:
My favorite is an oyster/cornbread stuffing, if you like seafood.
Southern Cornbread and Oyster Dressing
Combine cornbread and bread crumbs in a large bowl; mix in sauteed onions, salt and pepper, and parsley.
Add beaten eggs and toss more; moisten with the oyster liquid until moist but not soggy. Add the oysters.
Pat the mixture into a lightly buttered rectangular cake pan (it should make a 1-inch layer in the pan). Dot with remaining butter and bake about 45 minutes, until golden brown and set in the center.
Good Luck! (11/03/2004)
This is my favorite dressing recipe and it's so easy!
Crock-Pot Chicken 'n Dressing
Note: I don't layer the ingredients, I just mix them all up together. Also, I mix the dressing ingredients while the chicken is stewing and set in refrigerator until I have deboned the chicken and am ready to add it. Of course, if you just want "dressing", leave out the chicken and one can of soup.
Here is my grandmothers recipe from 1940's. Use box cornbread mix (miracle maize NO SUGAR) to make it easier. Kentucky recipe. Southern style
12 slices white bread
1/2 skillet cornbread
1 tsp. celery flakes
1 med. onion diced
1 tsp. parsley flakes
2-1/2 tsp. sage
1/4 tsp. black pepper
4 C. chicken broth
Fill buttered casserole 3/4 full. Bake at 350 for 40 min. Remove cover last 10 minutes baking time. (11/03/2004)
To make it easier follow the instructions on basic stuffing use Chicken Broth, orange juice, apple juice for liquid with butter I usually combine all these and all diced: apples, walnuts, celery,onions, water chestnuts. I get requests for recipe every time I make it be creative its easy and have fun.
I just simply melt a large amount of margarine, break up a loaf of white bread and add salt, pepper, sage, poultry season and some chopped up onion.
Add the melted margarine and mix together. Make sure dressing is very moist. Then stuff the dressing into a turkey or chicken and bake. (11/04/2004)
For a nice big batch of this dressing...from SCRATCH (now, don't be afraid):
(If you forget or don't have time to do this the day before, just toast in a low oven until most of the moisture is gone)
Toss together in a large bowl with:
Due to the problems with botulism with leftover dressing in the turkey, I never stuff them anymore and just bake the dressing in a dish. It is MUCH less fattening that way, too. Bake, covered for 30 minutes and uncovered for another 10 to crisp up the surface. Just pop in the oven along with the turkey, or while it is "resting" before it's carved...or bake ahead of time and pop in the microwave till hot through.
PS: don't be afraid to add some of your favorite herbs and spices, too, a teaspoon of cilantro is good, as well as some oregano and basil. If you get real frisky, add a can of mandarin oranges, a small can of unsweetened pineapple, etc.
Good luck, darlin' and have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Always remember that its not the food that is important, but the blessings and, most importantly, the fellowship.
