HOW TO MAKE CORNBREAD STUFFING
(See recipe card below for Full Instructions)
The first thing you’ll want to do is prepare the cornbread…
And this is actually better if you can do it a day or two in advance. Cause you actually want the cornbread and bread to be on the dry side to achieve the best results.
Once you’ve got the bread part covered the rest is pretty easy.
So here’s what you’ll need for this cornbread stuffing recipe…
- Cornbread cubes and bread cubes
- Vegetable broth
- Butter- unsalted
CAN I MAKE THIS WITH JUST CORNBREAD
Yes… you could use only cornbread cubes if you prefer. But personally I like it better mixed with a few bread slices.
Next you will add the diced onion, celery and garlic to pan with the melted butter. Sauté it till translucent a few minutes.
Then you’ll add the seasoning in and stir for another minute. Mix this with your dried bread cubes and bake.
CAN I MAKE THIS AHEAD
Yes you can easily make this ahead and check one more dish off your to do list early…
It will store in a covered airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
RECIPE TIPS FOR BEST RESULTS
Make the cornbread a couple days in advance so it has time to dry out a bit…
You could also dry it out in the oven along with the bread the day of if short on time.
Cut the cornbread and bread into small bite sized cubes.
Use good quality fresh ingredients for optimal flavor… make sure seasonings are fresh.
