As turkey day quickly comes bounding around the weekend's corner it is time to dig through the recipe books and boxes to find yummy favorites!
Here are a few favorites and finds!
Corn Bread Stuffing
This is one recipe that mom makes every year. I don't actually eat it but there usually is not any left!
This recipe is tweaked from the Better Homes and Garden New Cook Book from about the 70's.
1/2 lb bacon (8 to 10 slices)
1/4 cup of drippings kept in reserve
1 cup chopped celery
1/4 chopped onion
1/2 cup water
3 cups coarse corn bread crumbs
3 cups fine toast crumbs
1/4 teaspoon ground sage
2 cups chicken or turkey broth
Make before hand your cornbread according to the mix instructions. We use Jiffy and add about 1 tablespoon sugar to the mix.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In skillet cook the bacon until crisp; drain, reserving the drippings. Crumble bacon and set aside. To skillet, add celery, onion, and water. Cover and cook until barely tender, about 7 minutes.
Combine bacon, reserved drippings, vegetable mixture, corn bread crumbs, toast crumbs, sage, broth and toss well. Bake covered in a casserole pan for 30 minutes. Makes 8 servings or enough stuffing for a 8 lb turkey.
A recipe find!
One of my favorite things is looking though my mom's recipe box. It is so much fun to see who recipes came from and their handwriting. So I was excited to find this recipe from our grandmother!
