Things to eat with stuffing
I had some fantastic cornbread stuffing with the turkey on Thanksgiving, and now I'm craving more. It seems such a shame to only eat something that good once a year. What other dishes could I pair with stuffing/dressing, besides the obvious roast chicken?
Count me in-My only experience with cornbread stuffing/dressing was my dear departed MIL's--I have never gotten over the experience!! IT had chunks of stewed chicken in it and enough broth, that when it came out of the oven, it was swimming in it. I was raised on SourDough with fresh oysters and chestnuts--now that's some dressing!!! DH loves cornbread stuffing--you tell me your tricks and I'll share a few of mine!!!
What other dishes could I pair with stuffing/dressing?
Pork Chops to Roasts are often stuffed or served with dressing. Butterfly the roast, cut a pocket in thick chops, crown roasts.
Butterflied boneless leg of lamb are often stuffed, crown roasts can be filled after cooking with a dressing.
Beef Tenderloin butterflied and stuffed with an oyster dressing.
Breast of Veal Stuffed.
Whole, gutted fish stuffed with a veggie mixture.
We love Cornish Hens. Watched Tyler Florence do a cornbread stuffing/cornish hen show yesterday on FN. Personally, we prefer dressing (cooked outside the bird and crunchy on top). I like to halve cornish hens, roast them and glaze with currant jam/balsamic vinegar topping. If you wanted to be really festive, you could add some cranberries (and a little sugar as they tend to be tart) to the glaze.
I had a cornbread stuffing with a simple ham loaf, like a meat loaf, but, of course, using ground or finely chopped ham...yummmm, was it ever good.
How about sausages, pork chops, pork roast....I sense a theme here...eggs, any way...you know what?...stuffing goes with just about anything!
