We are starting side dishes today, yippee, they are my favorite.
If you notice I say dressing not stuffing, in the south we have dressing with our Turkey, we, well I should say at least my family and I do not stuff our Turkey we make Cornbread Dressing as a side. You will also notice that I use many of Tyler Florence's recipes, I love the way he cooks, most of his recipes are easy to follow and our homey and plus he is cute.
Caramelized Onion and Cornbread Dressing
Recipe courtesy Tyler Florence
Inactive Prep Time:
6 to 8 servings
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 2 onions, chopped
* 6 large cornmeal muffins, cubed
* A handful fresh sage leaves, chopped
* 1 egg
* 1/4 cup heavy cream
* 1/4 cup chicken stock
* Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring, for about 10 minutes, or until soft and caramelized. Scrape into a large mixing bowl, add the cornbread pieces and the sage, season well with salt and pepper, and give it a good toss until it's well combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, cream, and stock, and pour that over the cornbread. Stir the stuffing together, spoon it into a buttered baking dish and put it in the oven along with the turkey. Bake until hot and crusty on top, about 30 minutes.
