JENNIFER'S SOUTHERN STUFFING Recipe

By JEN10
Difficulty: Medium | Total Time: 2-1/2 HOURS | Active Time: | Makes: 12 SERVINGS

THIS IS MY VERSION OF STUFFING THAT I HAVE DEVELOPED OVER THE YEARS. I DON’T STUFF THE BIRD, BUT IT IS FLAVORED WITH CHICKEN BROTH GIVING IT THAT COOKED IN THE BIRD FLAVOR. I MAKE IT THE DAY BEFORE TO LET ALL THE FLAVORS MELD. TAKE IT OUT OF THE FRIDGE 30 MINUTES BEFORE BAKING IT.

INGREDIENTS
  • ONE RECIPIE ALBERS CORN BREAD BAKED WITH 1 TSP. DRIED SAGE
  • 1/2 LOAF DRIED FRENCH BREAD - CUT INTO SMALL CUBES AND DRIED IN THE OVEN
  • 2 TUBES JIMMY DEAN SAUSAGE
  • 2 ONIONS DICED
  • 3 STALKS CELERY SLICED THIN
  • 8 OZ SLICED MUSHROOM MORE OR LESS
  • 1 CUP FROZEN CORN KERNELS
  • 1 RED BELL PEPPER DICED
  • 1 GREEN APPLE DICED
  • 2 EGG YOLKS BEATEN
  • 1/2 CUP ORANGE JUICE
  • 2 -3 CUPS GOOD CHICKEN BROTH - I USE 'BETTER THAN BULLION' BRAND
  • SALT AND PEPPER
  • 1/3 CUP PARSLEY
  • 1 TBSP. SAGE
  • 1 TSP. ROSEMARY
  • 1 TSP THYME
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. MAKE THE CORN BREAD AND BREAK INTO BITE SIZE PIECES. MIX WITH FRENCH BREAD AND THE PARSLEY
  2. IN A LARGE POT ( I USE MY LE CREUSET FOR CONVIENCE OF COOKING, STORING, AND SERVING IN ONE POT) FRY THE SAUSAGE BREAKING UP AS YOU GO. ADD THE ONIONS, CELERY, BELL PEPPER, AND MUSHROOMS. COOK UNTIL SOFT. ADD CORN, SAGE, ROSEMARY, THYME, SALT AND PEPPER.
  3. TO THE SAUSAGE MIXTURE ADD THE CORNBREAD MIXTURE AND TOSS GENTLY.
  4. MIX YOLKS AND ORANGE JUICE, ADD TO THE BROTH. SLOWLY ADD ENOUGH BROTH TO MOISTEN THE STUFFING.
  5. TRANSFER TO A CASSEROLE IF NOT USING A LE CREUSET POT. COVER WITH FOIL.
  6. BAKE @ 350 FOR 1 HOUR. UNCOVER LAST 20 MINUTES TO CRISP UP A BIT.
