So let's shake up this tradtional side dish. Who dosen't love BACON!!! This recipe has the  smokiness of bacon, fresh herbs buttery cornbread. This will be the most requested side dish for every Thanksgiving and therafter.


2 cups toasted cornbread 

2 cups of whole wheat or multigran bread 

1 tbsp dried thyme and oregeno

1 tsp olive oil  


​2 cup chicken or vegetable broth

4  slices bacon chopped

    (beef, turkey or pork)

4 tbsp of unslated butter

1 tbsp dried thyme and oregano 

1 tbsp of chopped rosemary

1 tbsp of chopped Italian parsley 

1 tbsp of chopped basil

1 scallion finely chopped 

​1/4 cup of chopped red bell pepper 

4 garlic cloves finely chopped

1 celery stalk chopped 

1 Granny Smith apple chopped

1 1/2  tbsp of Cajun seasoning

    (paprika, black pepper, garlic powder, 

   kosher salt , cayenne pepper,

            onion powder, dried oregeno,

            red pepper flakes)


I added 1/4 tsp of crushed red pepper to make it a bit spicy 


Instructions


1. Heat oven at 325. Cut corn bread and          wheat bread into cubes.  Pour cubes in      a large mixing bowl and sprinkle dried 

    thyme, oregeno and olive oil. Spread          mixture on baking sheet and bake  for        abour 5 -7 minutes or until lightly                toasted. Pour bread back into mixing          bowl.


2.  Heat skillet on medium heat                        add chopped bacon. Once bacon is            cooked use a slotted spoon and tranfer       bacon to a bowl.

    DO NOT DISCARD BACON  FAT 

    Note : if using  turkey bacon and 1 tbsp      of butter to pan fist then add your              bacon 


3. Add 4 tbsp of butter to bacon fat to            melt then add garlic cook for about 1          min then add shallots to the skillet

    and cook until onion is translucent 

    1-2 minutes.


4.  Add celery and red bell pepper and             apples cook for about 4- 5 minutes. 


3.   Pour skillet mixture into the mixing            bowl with the bread and add coooked        bacon and mix with a fork you want to        keep it fluffy.


4.  Pour 1 1/2 cup of broth and mix it all           up until all crumbs are lightly wet. Add        small amounts of broth therafter if              need. Do not over saturate.

     The trick to great dressing is making         sure you do not use too much liquid           other wise it will be too mushy. 


5.  Use non stick spray on the Fancy               Panz alumium pan provided to you. 

     Spread drssing in ban evenly cover 

     with alumium foil and bake for 25-30            minutes
