It is finally that time of year again!!! The time of year that is full of family and friends gathering together to eat excessive amounts of food. This past weekend I was absolutely dying to have a chance to make a few of our traditional Thanksgiving dinner dishes “gluten free style” but knew there was no way Cohl and I could eat all of it. Although it was last minute, we decided to invite a bunch of friends, neighbors, and family to our house this past Wednesday for a “Friendsgiving.” I was pleasantly surprised to find out how much everyone loved this family version of “stuffing.” One of our friends even told us how much he normally hates “stuffing” but went back for seconds, and maybe even thirds of this dressing!
Growing up I remember my mom and dad creating this recipe completely on their own. Thanks to their ingenuity, this delicious twist on “stuffing” was born.It all starts with the Cajun “trinity” of onions, bell peppers and celery. Add in a little sausage, some Tony Chacere’s (or my version below) and chicken broth! Even as a kid who hated eating vegetables, I always looked forward to eating this dish! Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without this cornbread dressing on the table. Hope you enjoy 🙂
