This recipes comes from the Food Network courtesy of Tyler Florence. I made this for Thanksgiving this year. The amount of chicken stock was listed as 1/4 cup, this was cooked in a small pan in the oven and I found that I needed additional for the stuffing to be as moist as we liked.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 onions, chopped
- 6 large corn muffins, cubed
- 1⁄8-1⁄4 cup fresh sage leaf, chopped
- 1 egg
- 1⁄4 cup heavy cream
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup chicken stock, divided
- salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- Melt the butter over medium heat, add onions and cook until soft and caramelized, stirring frequently, approximately 10 to 15 minutes; stir in the fresh sage.
- Pour mixture into a large mixing bowl, add in the cornbread and season well with salt and pepper; toss gently until well combined.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, cream and 1/4 cup of chicken stock, pour over the cornbread mixture, stir gently.
- If cooking in the turkey, stuff and proceed as per your recipe for roasted turkey.
- If cooking outside the bird, spoon the mixture into a 2 quart casserole dish, pour the additional stock over all and place in oven the last 30 minutes that turkey is baking.
- Bake until hot and crusty on top.
I've used this recipe for 3 years now and I absolutely love it, as do all who taste it. I do add extraliquid with a little extra stock and a little extra cream.
I made this last year, and it did turn out a little dry, but with a little more moisture added such as the Smoked Turkey Gravy!! or any of the turkey gravys Tyler Florence makes...OMG! I love this dressing!
Mine turned out dry and I used less cornbread than suggested. I used savory and poultry seasoning in place of the fresh sage. Won't make again.
