Stuffing is a must at every Thanksgiving table! Our favorite stuffing gets it's distinct texture and flavor from easy-to-make, homemade corn bread in addition to dried stuffing croutons. Fresh herbs brighten up this dish that just might become a family favorite staple during the holidays.Ingredients:1/2 pan (9x13" pan) of corn bread, cut into 1" cubes (see our recipe below)6 cups dried stuffing crouton, packaged5 tablespoons butter, divided1 large onion, diced (3 cups)8 stalks celery, diced (3 cups)2 tablespoons fresh sage, minced1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced2 - 2.5 cups chicken broth
Directions:1. In a large sauté pan, cook the onions and celery in 2 tablespoons of butter until softened and translucent.2. In a large bowl, mix together the cubed corn bread, croutons, sautéed celery and onion, rosemary, sage, kosher salt and pepper. Slowly add the broth and fold together until just moist.3. Place the mixture in a large, greased casserole dish, and top with pats of the remaining butter. Cover with a lid or foil. (The stuffing may be made ahead of time and refrigerated until ready to bake; add an additional 15 minutes of baking time if the stuffing is starting from the chilled stage.)
3. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes, then remove the cover/foil and continue baking for 10-15 minutes more, or until the top browns nicely.
