Happy No Waste Wednesday!
Long time no talk–Hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving 🙂 I celebrate with family and friends #FriendsgivingPotluck. It felt so good to be home! I’m thankful for the time spent with them. I’m also thankful that the semester is almost over! No more papers or tests. More time with friends and family. Guilt free Netflix binge. More Sleep…I can’t wait! Because I’m in such a festive mode, I sharing some of my Thanksgiving eats AND a new recipe/how to use your thanksgiving leftovers. My Collard Wrapped Cornbread Stuffing is a fun, creative twist on two classic dishes–cornbread stuffing and collard greens!
Depending on your mood, you can easily eat these collard greens wrapped cornbread stuffing with your hands or eat them with a fork and knife. They are the perfect dish for a holiday party, a fancy cocktail party and at home snacking!
- 2 large onions, thinly sliced or diced
- 1 stick of butter
- Sprigs of sage, rosemary and thyme to taste (rough chop 1/2 or so for cornbread)
- Cornbread croutons or 2 box of your favorite cornbread stuffing mix
- Collard Greens, de-stemmed and halved depending on the size of the greens
- 2-4 cups of vegetable broth
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a large pan, melt the butter over medium-low heat with sprigs of sage, rosemary and thyme.
- Add the onions. Cook until soft and translucent. Remove sage, rosemary and thyme sprigs.
- Pour mixture over croutons. Toss. If you think the mixture is too dry, add some of the vegetable broth.
- Lay collard green on a flat surface and place a small amount cornbread stuffing mixture in the center. Roll like you would a burrito.
- In a deep baking dish, pour vegetable broth and add the rolled collards.
- Bake in 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or until greens are tender.
*Devoted Foodie Notes* This can also be a great way to use your (Thanksgiving) leftovers. I stuffed the extra collard greens I had with my leftovers (use whatever you have–turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes etc…) rolled and baked them. Yum!
