    I make Paula Deen’s cornbread stuffing and it is amazing! However, I replace the poultry seasoning with a few seasoning packets from Chicken flavored ramen noodles and do not add any salt.

    Here it is:

    Ciabatta Stuffing with Chestnuts and Pancetta
    Ingredients
    6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter
    8 ounces pancetta, cut into 1/4-inch dice
    2 large onions, finely chopped
    2 carrots, peeled and finely chopped
    3 celery stalks, finely chopped
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves
    3 garlic cloves, chopped
    2 (7.4-ounce) jars roasted peeled whole chestnuts, coarsely broken
    1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
    1 pound day-old ciabatta bread, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
    2/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
    1 cup (or more) canned low-salt chicken broth
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    2 large eggs, beaten to blend
    Directions
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Butter a 15 by 10 by 2-inch glass baking dish. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add the pancetta and saute until crisp and golden, about 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pancetta to a large bowl. Melt the remaining butter in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, carrots, celery, rosemary, and garlic. Saute until the onions are very tender, about 12 minutes. Gently stir in the chestnuts and parsley. Transfer the onion mixture to the large bowl with the pancetta. Add the bread and Parmesan and toss to coat. Add enough broth to the stuffing mixture to moisten. Season the stuffing, to taste, with salt and pepper. Mix in the eggs.

    Transfer the stuffing to the prepared dish. Cover with buttered foil, buttered side down, and bake until the stuffing is heated through, about 30 minutes. Uncover and continue baking until the top is crisp and golden, about 15 minutes longer.

    Here are four of mine, all go over big!

    Traditional Green Bean Casserole (with a twist)

    Serves 6-8
    Prep time 20 mins.
    Cook time 45 mins.

    Ingredients

    2 cans French style green beans, drained
    2 cans 10 ¾ oz cream of mushroom soup
    2 cups French fried onions, divided
    1 cups button mushrooms, sliced
    1 cup swiss cheese, grated
    ½ cup milk
    8 slices bacon fried and crumbled, divided
    1 small yellow onion, chopped
    3 cloves chopped garlic or ½ tsp. garlic powder
    1 tsp. curry powder
    1 tsp. salt
    ½ tsp. pepper

    In medium mixing bowl combine all ingredients except ½ of the bacon and 1 cup of the French fried onions. Mix well with spoon. Spoon mixture into 8x8x2 glass baking dish and cover with foil. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven on center rack for 30 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle remaining bacon and French fried onion over top and bake uncovered for an additional 15 minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately.

    Recipe can be doubled and baked in a 9x13x2 glass baking dish.

    Heavenly Twice Baked Potatoes

    6 large baking potatoes
    ½ cup grated swiss or mozzarella cheese
    ½ cup cream, half and half or whole milk (more or less)
    ½ cup fresh grated parmesan or Romano cheese
    ½ stick real butter
    2 eggs separated
    1 tsp. salt
    ½ tsp cracked pepper
    3 cloves minced garlic or ½ tsp garlic powder
    ½ tsp paprika

    Cut an oval shape out of the top of the potatoes large enough to be able to scoop out the potato and refill later (most of the top). Carefully scoop the potato out of the skins and save the skins. In a large mixing bowl mash the potatoes with a fork, a potato masher or for best results I prefer to use a potato ricer (please don‘t use a mixer). To this add the grated swiss or mozzarella cheese, butter, egg yolks (save the egg whites for later) salt, pepper, garlic, ½ of the parmesan or Romano cheese and add cream, half and half or whole milk slowly to get the right texture (the potatoes should be pretty thick because the next step will thin them a little more.) Mix well with large spoon. Now in a mixing bowl beat the egg whites with an electric mixer on high to stiff peaks (a cool whip consistency). Carefully fold the egg whites into the mashed potatoes being careful not to mix to much (just until mixed throughout). Spoon the mashed potatoes back into the empty skins, don’t be shy here the skins should be overflowing! Top them with the remaining parmesan or Romano cheese, sprinkle on a little paprika and bake in a 350 F oven on middle rack for 30 minutes. Remove and serve immediately. Mmm Mmm good.

    These mashed potatoes are so light and fluffy they will melt in your mouth!

    Waldorf Salad

    In a large bowl combine 6 unpeeled golden and red delicious apples, cored and cubed, 1/2 bag mini marshmallows, 2 sticks of celery cut into 1/4″ slices, 1 cup raisins, 1 lb. green seedless grapes cut in half and 1/2 cup chopped pecans.(I don’t like walnuts)to this mix add one cup Miracle Whip (not mayo) fold in gently until all is covered. Optional: 1 1/2 cup mandarin orange pieces.

    Grandma’s Pork Dressing

    Prep time 40 minutes
    Cook time 40 minutes
    Serves 6-8
    Can be doubled if necessary

    2 lbs. ground pork
    6 slices thick cut Italian bread, crust removed dried overnight
    3 medium yellow onions, chopped
    1-2 Tbsp. dried thyme flakes or ¼ cup fresh thyme, to taste
    1 Tbsp. salt
    ½ Tbsp. black pepper

    Put pork and onion in large saucepan and add water to cover meat. Bring to a boil and continue to boil for 30 minutes stirring and breaking up meat occasionally to separate. Remove from heat, drain most of the water and put into a large mixing bowl. When meat is cool enough to work with hands, crumble bread into it in coarse but not large pieces and add salt and pepper, mix well with your hands. The mix should have the consistency of thick mashed potatoes (add water a little at a time if you need to.) At this point the pork is cooked so mix in thyme a little at a time, tasting as you go, to your liking. Either spoon into turkey as you would stuffing or put into a glass baking dish and cover with foil (or both if you have a lot.) Cook turkey as normal or put the dish on the center rack of a 350 degree oven and cook for 40 minutes.

    This is a traditional French dish and has been made in my family for many generations. It is very different as a turkey stuffing but so much tastier than bland bread based stuffing. Your guests should love it.
