Stuffing with collards, cornbread, and soyrizo

I had a thanksgiving potluck this week, so I decided to try a new stuffing recipe. I followed the recipe exactly, except instead of making my own cornbread, I used TJ's cornbread mix because it is impossible to do any baking from scratch in our tiny kitchen, especially since we no have no mixing bowls and only 1 baking pan (and as lola's friend k. said, "actual homemade stuffing is like wild cows...you just never see it" we then proceeded to have a 20 minute conversation with two of the RAs about how Jiffy cornbread is everyone's family secret, the controversial inclusion of whole pieces of corn in cornbread, and the existance of something called a "cheesecake lollipop tree". anyhoo, trader joe's makes a good cornbread mix). I also substituted soyrizo (trader joe's too) for the chorizo.


despite having to figure out a way to make everything in one pot, and a frantic last minute trip to the deli to buy tinfoil, it turned out quite good. Everything at the potluck was delicous, and I had a the perfect thanksgiving feast-stuffing, mac & cheese, candied yams, and a ridiculous amount of pie.

Ingredients

  • CORN BREAD:
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 cups stone-ground white cornmeal
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 2 extra-large eggs
  • 1 1/2 sticks (6 ounces) unsalted butter, melted

  • STUFFING:
  • 2 pounds collard greens, large stems discarded
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 pound chorizo, coarsely chopped
  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 3 celery ribs, finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken or turkey stock or canned low-sodium broth

Preparation

1. MAKE THE CORN BREAD: Preheat the oven to 425°. Pour the oil into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish and heat in the oven. In a large bowl, whisk the cornmeal with the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. In another bowl, whisk the buttermilk with the eggs. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients, add the melted butter and stir with a wooden spoon until just blended; do not overmix.

2. Remove the baking dish from the oven and swirl to coat with the oil. Scrape the batter into the hot dish and bake for 25 minutes, or until springy and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer to a rack and let cool. Turn the oven down to 375°. Crumble the corn bread into small chunks and spread on 2 large baking sheets. Bake the corn bread for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until dry and golden. Leave the oven on.

3. MAKE THE STUFFING: In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the collard greens until just tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and let cool slightly. Squeeze dry and coarsely chop.

4. Melt the butter in a large skillet. Add the chorizo and cook over moderately low heat for 5 minutes. Add the onion and celery and cook, stirring, until softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in the collards and remove from the heat. Let cool completely.

5. Scrape the corn bread into a very large bowl and add the collard mixture. Season with salt and pepper. In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the stock and pour over the stuffing; mix well.

6. Butter 2 large, shallow baking dishes and divide the stuffing between them. Cover and bake at 375° for about 25 minutes, or until heated through. Uncover and bake for about 10 minutes longer, or until browned. Serve hot.

Make Ahead: The corn bread can be frozen for up to 1 month. The stuffing can be assembled and refrigerated overnight. Bring to room temperature before baking.

"Anyhoo" Love that expression! Love the discussion on people's guilty secrets about cornbread and stuffing, so true! Looks fabulous and reminds me of a homemade soyrizo recipe that I used to make (with crumbled tofu). You've inspired me, I think I"ll have to dig that one out. Thanks!

Not bad ladies, not bad! I'd totally eat this. I've heard that TJ's cornbread mix is awesome. I just read about someone stuffing an acorn squash with it, which sounds awesome too.

I love the wild cow comment, although I do have to contest. I went to Hong Kong earlier this year and took a day trip to Lantau Island which is home to many feral cows! OK, so maybe you're right, you never really see it though :)

What a tasty stuffing! We always had Jiffy cornbread too - in fact, I just made cornbread from scratch, but the recipe was called "Jiffy Cornbread Clone!"
