    MANLY CORNBREAD STUFFING

    2 boxes Jiffy cornbread mix
    1 package Pepperidge Farm Cornbread Dressing Mix
    1 medium yellow onion, chopped
    3 beaten eggs
    chicken stock or broth (2 1/2 - 5 c.)

    The day before you cook and serve the dressing: Cook the Jiffy
    cornbread mix according to package directions and let cool. Chop onion
    and wilt or sauté it in a tablespoon of butter, let cool. When the
    cornbread is cool, crumble it into a large bowl, add most or all of the
    package of Pepperidge Farm Cornbread Dressing Mix, stir to combine.
    Next add the onion and stir to combine. Cover and let sit in a cool dry
    place overnight to allow flavors to develop. When you are ready to cook
    it, add chicken stock or broth and beaten eggs to the cornbread mix,
    then stir to thoroughly combine. There is not an exact amount of broth,
    but add enough so that the mixture resembles a very course and thick
    cake batter. Heat oven to 375F. In a very large, heavy pan or two iron
    skillets, add enough oil or shortening to cover the pan. When the oven
    is ready, melt shortening or heat oil in the oven till it is smoking
    (watch carefully). Remove and immediately pour the dressing batter into
    the hot pan or pans. This helps to create a tasty crust. Bake 45
    minutes or until it is cooked through and a tester comes out clean.
    Note: Because the Pepperidge Farm Dressing Mix is pre-seasoned with
    herbs, this adds just the right amount of traditional sage and
    “Thanksgiving” taste to the mix, eliminating the need to add further
    seasonings. This is a traditional recipe handed down through several
    generations of our family. Very large batch, serves 12-15. (By Karl
    “The Pigman” Engel)

    The recipe does not say how much broth to use. I used canned
    chicken broth because I didn't want to wait until my turkey
    broth was ready. I used one 10 1/2 oz. can Campbell's chicken broth
    and diluted it with 1 can of water. That was about 2 1/2 cups of
    liquid. My stuffing was fairly dry. I think in order to get it
    to the consistency they call for you would need at least twice
    that amount, about 5 cups. Next time I might use a little more -
    maybe 3-3 1/2 cups.

    When you feed your family stuff with partially hydrogenated soybean

    Calling this manly only makes sense if you think that men are stupid.

    Ethylene glycol (IUPAC name: ethane-1,2-diol) is an organic compound
    widely used as an automotive antifreeze and a precursor to polymers.
    In its pure form, it is an odorless, colorless, syrupy, sweet tasting
    liquid (although it should be noted that ethylene glycol is toxic, and
    ingestion can result in death).

    I've always admired your recipes, Kate. You inspired me to make corn
    chowder. I can't eat it anymore, but thanks for the recipe!
    But dang...okay, maybe the excuse is in the subject line..."manly" What
    does that mean?

    Hopefully you saved that dry dressing. Add more broth or even water and
    heat it up to make a nice moist dressing. You can easily stir in more
    broth/stock/water and then reheat it in a covered dish in the microwave.
    Taste and adjust seasonings. All is not lost!

    I know what ethylene glycol is. I was being sarcastic.

    That was the name of the recipe. Supposedly invented by a "man".
    Note name of author. ;-)

    Anyway, I chose it because it was quick and dirty and I have been
    having a lot of back and leg pain the last 2 weeks and didn't want
    anything too complicated in order to reduce the amount of time
    I spend in the kitchen and on my feet. (You wouldn't believe the
    things I can do sitting down!) Anyway, it tastes pretty good.

    I was tempted to try one with sausage and apple in it but *way*
    too much work. I may try that one another time because it really
    sounds good.

    I explained that I didn't want it too moist as that was what
    I didn't like about the first cornbread dressing I tried. This
    one turned out only slightly drier than I would want. But once
    I put gravy on it it's not a problem. It's fine the way it is
    for now. Next time I'll make it *slightly* more moist.

    It should piss you off too that brands like Pep. Farms and Brownberry
    appear on stuffing mixes with partially hydrogenated oils.

    Most of the recipes that you re-publish are good. This one wasn't.
    The cornbread stuffing mix at Trader Joe's is far better than what The
    Pigman prescribes.
