Dressing V. Stuffing

Sunday, November 21, 2010


Which do you serve on Thanksgiving: dressing or stuffing?  I think Southerners tend to prefer dressing, so I think it might be a regional preference.  Does anyone know for sure?  I wanted to serve a delicious oyster stuffing to my family this year.


But it's not.  Gonna.  Happen.  Everyone wants me to cook my grandmother's chicken and dressing recipe.  It is very simple and yummy:

Big Mama's Dressing

1 (8 inch) cornbread
4 slices white bread
Chicken broth
3 medium onions, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
3 eggs, beaten
2 cups shredded chicken (this is optional, and I prefer dark meat)

Combine chicken broth, corn bread, and white bread; let soak until mushy. Cook onions and celery in a saucepan with water to cover until done; drain. Pour over cornbread mixture. Add salt and pepper.  Add eggs to mixture.  At this point, you can add a little bit of chicken to the mixture.  Pour into a greased 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan, and bake at 350 degrees until done, about one hour, but you might want to start checking it at 50 minutes.  Serves 6 - 8 hungry people!

I am making a quick trip to the grocery after church to start buying what I need for our Thanksgiving meal so I don't have to buy so much on Wednesday.  I have a long list, and I have checked it twice!

I hope y'all have a great Sunday.

Until next time...
