Every year during the holidays I am requested a side dish to take on potlucks or to make at home for my family. It is also a great side dish to make for entertaining guests for dinner at home.
The one I can make over and over again and will get the most amazing compliments on is a prosciutto cornbread stuffing I learned to make years (like nine years) ago. I don’t make it during the year, just because I want to keep it special for the holiday season. It’s a personal choice, you can make this stuffing anytime of the year you wish to.
Here is the recipe for you to make and taste this addicting side dish at the comfort of your own home.
Heat a skillet (or deep pot) over medium high heat. Double the recipe if needed. Specially if you want left overs, YUM!
Combine oil and butter. When butter melts into oil, add celery, onions and season with salt, pepper and poultry seasoning.
Saute for about 5 minutes until just tender, keep an eye on it from time to time.
Add sage, cilantro, prosciutto and stir to combine.
Crumble the cornbread into the pan.
Moisten stuffing with broth and heat through.
Remove from the heat.
Cover with foil to keep warm.
Heat a skillet (or deep pot) over medium high heat.
Double the recipe if needed. Specially if you want left overs, YUM!
You can use an ice cream scoop to mound the stuffing on the plates, which kiddos love, or just use a nice size serving spoon. I hope you enjoy this side dish as much as my family and friends do. It’s absolutely delicious and addicting. Tastes amazing the day after, if you happen to have any left overs.
