I made this for dinner and it was very good! I made the EZ Drop Biscuits to go with it. Hit the spot on a cold day!
1 (16-oz.) bag baby carrots, whole or cut in half
1 lb. bag frozen corn
5 lg. potatoes, quartered & sliced
1 (10.75-oz.) can cr. of something soup (I use mushroom)
1 (10.75-oz.) soup can of water
1 (26-oz.) can tomato soup
salt, pepper, onion powder & garlic powder, to taste
Brown burger with seasonings (can substitute with fresh pressed garlic and 1 diced onion if you wish). Spray a large crock pot with cooking spray. Throw everying in the crock pot and cook on HIGH for 4-5 hours or LOW for 8-10 hours; stirring occasionally. NOTE: I put the carrots in a bowl and microwave them for 3-5 minutes on HIGH to partially cook them because they can sometimes come out a little crunchy yet if not partially cooked ahead of time.
2 c. Cornmeal
2 c. Flour
½ c. Sugar
2 t. Salt
6 t. Baking Powder
½ c. Oil
2 c. Milk
1 t. Black Pepper
4 Fresh Sage Leaves (finely chipped)
1 t. Rubbed Sage
*Note: If fresh sage is unavailable, use 2 t. of rubbed sage.
Combine ingredients and bake in greased 9x13 glass baking dish at 400 for 20-30 minutes. Allow to cool and then crumble cornbread into large bowl and set aside.
1 Onion (Finely Chopped)
5 Celery Stalks (Finely Chopped)
Leaves stripped from 15-20 Fresh Thyme Branches (or 2-3 t. dried Thyme)
Leaves stripped and chopped from 15-20 Fresh Rosemary Branches (or 2-3 t. dried Thyme)
10-16 Fresh Sage Leaves (Finely chopped) (or 1-2 t. Rubbed Sage)
1-2 t. Dried Marjoram
Water or Warm Turkey Broth to consistency desired. (*I prefer water.)
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Add Marjoram into crumbled cornbread. Next, sauté onion and celery in butter. When onion and celery have sautéed a little, add the fresh herbs and finish sautéing. (If using dried herbs, do not sauté them. Instead, add dried herbs directly into crumbled cornbread with marjoram.) Once vegetables and herbs are finished sautéing, mix them into crumbled cornbread. (If necessary, add salt and pepper to taste—but be careful with the salt. The herbs are strong enough to add flavor and it’s easy to over-salt.) Mix in add ½–1 cup of water (my preference) or turkey broth until stuffing is moist but not soggy. (I find turkey broth can cause the stuffing to taste too strong and overpowers the flavor of the cornbread and herbs.)
Place stuffing in glass baking dish or bowl, cover and heat thoroughly before serving.
