The Mustard Seed Spice Market Stuffing:
1 Jiffy Mix Cornbread
1 Martha White Cornbread Mix
1 stick of butter
2 cups chopped celery
1 chopped yellow onion
1 sleeve saltine crackers
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sage
1 tbs poultry seasoning (famous at The Mustard Seed Spice Market)
7 cups chicken stock
To begin the recipe make two pans of cornbread. One Jiffy Mix, and one Martha White Mix (Jiffy is too sweet alone and Martha is too plane, but together they are perfect). Thile those are baking you want to boil 4 eggs together.
While those cool, you want to use a skillet to melt one stick of butter. You then will need to sautés 2 cups of chopped celery and one chopped yellow onion. After the cornbread cools, you will need to crumble them up in a very large mixing bowl. You will need to add one sleeve of crumbled saltine crackers, 1tsp salt, 1 tsp sage and 1 tbs of poultry seasoning.
In a small mixing bow, whisk 5 eggs until beaten and add two cups of chicken stock then whisk together. Pour over the crumbled cornbread. Mix in sautéed vegetables, and chopped boiled eggs.
Stir in about 5 more cups of chicken stock and be sure to stir well. This is where you are able to adjust things based on your own taste and liking. You will want to taste the mix and add poultry seasoning until you like it. Usually it will be about two more tablespoons of the seasoning, and a good shake of black pepper to taste.
Pour in large 9×13 pan, and bake at 350 degrees for about an hour. Serve and enjoy!
