*CONBREAD STUFFED WITH BACON*
- Judi C - Rockville, Md.
For the recipe, take your family recipe for cornbread stuffing ... spices and all and home cook it. Don't miss one beat on literally toasting/cooking/broiling cornbread. Whatever the recipe calls for, add one pound of cooked, chopped, fresh bacon to the recipe for every 12 servings. When cooking the bacon, set the grease aside. Whatever water is suggested in the recipe, instead add ½ water and ½ bacon grease. Trust me! Bomb!
