Stuffing in an Electric Skillet? You Bet!
Many people are surprised to learn that they can bake foods like cornbread stuffing in an electric skillet. Because electric skillets have temperature controls similar to those of an oven, as long as you have a lid for your skillet. For simplicity, you can use a store bought cornbread stuffing mix to make the dressing in the skillet. This saves oven space if your oven is filled with other dishes or you don't want to heat up the kitchen.
Cornbread stuffing mix
2 Tbsp. butter
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 onion, chopped fine
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups chicken or turkey broth
2 Tbsp. dried sage
Prepare the cornbread stuffing according to package directions. You can use the skillet for this step also if it is the stovetop kind of stuffing. Simply add the water or broth called for on the package, bring to a boil in the skillet and prepare the stuffing mix. Remove the stuffing from the skillet and place in a large bowl.
Add the butter to the skillet and sauté the celery and onion until the vegetables are soft.
Add 2 beaten eggs to the stuffing mix in the bowl and stir in the onions and celery. Stir in the chicken broth and the dried sage.
Place the stuffing mixture back into the skillet. Set the temperature of the skillet to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cover and cook the stuffing for 30 to 45 minutes until cooked through.
Word of Wisdom
You can also use crumbled cornbread in the recipe instead of cornbread stuffing mix.
You can use your electric skillet to cook many different types of stuffing and casseroles. Simply set the thermostat to match the temperature the recipe calls for an oven setting and keep covered during the cooking time.
If you make stove top type of stuffing, you can keep the stuffing warm until meal time by setting the skillet to "keep warm."
If your electric skillet does not have non-stick coating, spray the skillet with non-stick spray before cooking the stuffing.
