Blue Cornmeal Chorizo Stuffing
In a large skillet cook sausage, celery, onion, carrot, peppers, and garlic over medium heat about 10 minutes or until sausage is brown and vegetables are tender. Drain off fat. Stir in thyme and sage.Advertisement
In a large mixing bowl stir together crumbled corn bread and sausage mixture. Add broth, tossing to moisten. Use to stuff one 8- to 10-pound turkey. Spoon any stuffing that doesn't fit into the turkey into a casserole. Cover and chill. Bake, covered, during the last 30 minutes of roasting. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
Because chili peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chili peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chili peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.
Store cooled cornbread overnight in airtight container before using for stuffing.
The internal temperature of the stuffing inside of the turkey should reach 165 degrees F.
Blue Corn Bread
In a small skillet cook margarine or butter and garlic, until garlic is tender. In a medium mixing bowl stir together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another medium mixing bowl stir together eggs, milk, and margarine-garlic mixture. Add to cornmeal mixture. Stir just until batter is smooth. Pour into a greased 9x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Makes 8 or 9 servings when served as a bread.Advertisement
