At least I think it may be cornbread stuffing. I simmered some turkey necks with some aromatics all morning. Added a good sprinkle of dried tarragon and it has been smelling really great. Here it is just getting started:
And after several hours simmering:
I picked all the meat off the bones. It was all I could do not to just stuff it into my mouth it smelled so good. It had the attention of all the dogs, you can be sure! LOL
I was thinking this might be the basis for a gravy tomorrow but changed my mind. I’ve been looking at cornbread dressing recipes and I think I’m going to add the neck meats to the mix. I just pulled a skillet full of buttermilk cornbread out of the oven. When it cools I’ll crumble it up and see how well my take on a cornbread dressing comes out.
Most all of the dressing recipes I’ve been looking at have onions and celery, and that’s it for veggies. I want to add some bell pepper to the mix and see if that will work.
All the recipes so far call for some white bread as well as the cornbread. I have a multi-grain French loaf baking now. Yeah, yeah, that’s not white bread. I’m good with that.
I’m gonna hit the publish button. Come back soon for the finale!
