Our family now has a new long-standing joke when it comes to Thanksgiving Stuffing. Yes, Thanksgiving was last month but with baby-girl's fake concussion turned family stomach but, who has time to post blogs?
So mom and I started making cornbread stuffing the day before. She used my standby cornbread recipe and baked it on the sheet pans. I said, hey "triple" the recipe, so she did. When I came home later that day, it didn't look like a lot, so I told her to triple it again...so she did and then we had a mound of cornbread so stupidly high, I didn't have a container large enough to put it in. Then I remembered those aluminum pans I bought at Costco to bring dinners to families...they were waaaaayyy too big so I stuck them in the garage with the intention of exchanging them for the smaller ones and never did. So check out my monster stuffing.
Here I am chopping a mound of celery...
This is a triple batch of cornbread which usually
makes 36 muffins...We made a total of 6 batches, don't ask why.
So this is a giant aluminum pan from Costco, a church sized one filled with just cornbread. I forgot the final picture, but we had 2 of these filled with stuffing!
Sneaky cornbread muncher!
Big sissa helping with the chopping.
Now here is the crazy part. Three packages of Italian sausage from Trader Joes, 3 large yellow onions, garlic and one big head of celery...and a ton of sage and poultry seasoning (probably 5 T.). Notice the size of this massive iron skillet. Once again, I think things don't look big until I get them home. This is a 16 inch pan!
Sausage meatiness in all its glory...Freakin' ridiculous!
