Not really Halloween but...

Postby Halloween the 13th » Tue Nov 07, 2006 3:42 pm

Southerners can definatly help me here.

I can make the best cornbread dressing there is. No bread, just stale cornbread, broth, celery, onions, giblets (that's the turkey neck, liver, heart and other goodies for all of you northerners, lol just kidding) and plenty of sage, poultry seasoning and other spices.

I have my first child on the way, so don't get me wrong. My mom's and her mom's and her mom's ect. ect. ect. dressing will be the mainstay forever.

But just wondering why Ground sausage has never been in my family's dressing. Has anyone here had success with it. Seems that it is pretty much a normal ingrediant in dressing in the south.

I'm thinking of trying it out this year, probably with sage flavored sausage.

Oh man, my mom would kill me if she read this!

Well I am not a Southerner but I use sausage in my dressing every year. My dressing consists of mashed potatoes, onion, spices (oniion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, just a little onion soup mix and lots of poultry seasoning). Sometimes I put celery or salted green onions in it if I have it in my fridge but I always buy one of those packs of pork sausage and fry it up loose then mash it in with my potato and other fixings then either stuff the turkey or make it seperate and at turkey drippings after the turkey is done to put a zap of turkey flavor in it. It is funny my husband and his family didn't even realize there was sausage in it but I like to mash is well more for the flavor of the meat. And on a separate note I don't even like sausage on any other occasion.... But all in all sausage adds alot of flavor and richness to a dressing. I totally recommend it.

You use no cornbread? Mashed potatoes only?

That's different... :?

Thanks for the recipe.

Yep just mashed potato. I have actually never cooked with cornbread before :oops: I know alot of people here make a bread dressing when they tear up sliced bread and make it but I have never tried... I stick to what works and what my guests like....

Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I actually don't use sliced bread either, though alot of people do. Just day old cornbread.

My mother in law uses roughly half and half and it makes for a very doughy, clumpy dressing. I hate it. :lol:

You should try a small dish of traditional "southern" dressing. Let me know if you want it and I'll post my recipe, or you can use a combination of mine and other people's. Maybe even experiment and make a dish before hand, just to get an idea of what it tastes like. Very cheap to make, and you can buy a whole chicken and use the giblets that come in it. Basicly the same as turkey giblets.

Gods, I am such a Californy girl. I use Mrs. Cubbison's boxed stuffing. Yeah, I know. If I thought that I could pull it off, I would try that recipe!
