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
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
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
