Here’s a cool way to repurpose leftover cornbread. Turn it into cornbread dressing.
It’s tough cooking for only one or two. If you live by yourself or with a roommate or spouse, you know that all too well. So many recipes, especially baked goodies, make enough to feed a family with leftovers.
The options are:
- Cut recipes in half.
- Buy already made or order in restaurants.
- Give up your favs.
- Make the full recipe and deal with the leftovers.
I often do the last option, but after two rounds of cornbread, I’ve had it. Don’t get me wrong – I adore cornbread. Alas, stale cornbread is about as bad as fresh cornbread is good. I wrapped my leftovers in aluminum foil and stashed them in the freezer.
Today I got the bright idea to make cornbread stuffing. What a wonderful way to “make all things new.” I think the contemporary term is “repurpose.” I took the old, stale, used up, and unwanted to make something new and appealing. We couldn’t even tell it was leftover.
