Hi. Don here, telling you about Cornbread Stuffing. When the family comes over for the holidays we have the traditional savory stuffing cooked inside the turkey. So on the occasion when it’s just Lois and me, we can experiment. Today is one of those days. On a casual cruise through food sites I came across a Sausage, Fig & Cranberry Stuffing recipe on www.browneyedbaker.com. Lois had some dates and I like cornbread stuffing so with a few modifications, a new tasty stuffing Recipe Idea is created.
If we had some day-old corn bread I would have preferred to use it. Breaking it into small pieces and toasting it in the oven for a few minutes until it crisps up. The Pepperidge Farm packaged mix is a good substitute.
We found a beautiful chicken breast in a local butcher shop. I mixed up the stuffing and put it into our Le Creuset roaster. Placed the chicken breast on top, rubbed it with olive oil and salted and peppered it well.
I was delighted with the first bite. Not too sweet, not too tart—just delightful on the pallet. This stuffing would also work well with a rolled and stuffed flank steak or as stuffing for pork chops. I can’t wait to try it again. Like other fruits or nuts better? Try them and post your version of a unique stuffing Recipe Idea.
