Things to eat with stuffing

mordacity Dec 16, 2007 12:16 PM

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?

    I've got some ideas but I'm holding them hostage until you post the recipe for that fantabulous cornbread stuffing.

    Everyone's with me on this one, right?

      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!!!

        I had Thanksgiving at a friend's so I will have to double-check with her, but I think it was this one: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...

        Almost everything.

        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!
