My Great Grandmother made stuffing on the regular. (Here’s more about her, this was added so it is posted in the future!) She was a genius in the kitchen, simple and quality.
So here is stuffing the way stuffing is supposed to be made, according to everyone that I’m related to. Also, our people call it dressing. Behold the power of dressing.
Cornbread Dressing, Central Texas Style
(that means, super simple and so freaking good)
What you’ll need:
Cornbread mix (and whatever that calls for)
1 sweet onion
Turkey broth (or chicken broth, or both)
What you’ll do:
Make the Jiffy cornbread according to the box recipe. Once it’s done and out and cool, pull it out the pan, put it in a bowl and mash it up/mix it up into cornbread crumbs. Chop one onion, add that to the mix. Bring approximately 32-48 oz of broth to a boil. Once the broth is super hot, add it to the mixture. Mix it up (it should be more soupy than solid). Put it in a 9X13 baking dish and bake it at 350 for 1 hour.
Just so you know, this recipe isn’t written down anywhere, so I had to adapt it. We usually make this for about 30 people and use 7 boxes of cornbread mix, 4 large onions, and broth from a 22 lb turkey + 2 cartons of 32 oz chicken broth.
This is so so good (and so easy), I don’t know why you’d make dressing/stuffing any other way.
Happy Thanksgiving from Texas!
