A tyranny of the urgent has taken too much territory in our lives. It’s time to push back, through the most important meal of the day, and upon the most overlooked and humble part of our home–the dinner table.

The table … where we sit together and ingest the same foods, that at the same time nourish our bodies, and when our thoughts and intentions may just be more earnest, honest, and caring.

Lingering around the table

Dinner is an important part of the day!

And we tend to linger around the table just a little longer when we’ve prepared a “special” meal, and we have invited guests over to share it with us.

Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time1 hr 40 mins
Total Time2 hrs
Course: Side Dish
Keyword: stuffing
Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 shallots diced
  • 2 Asian pears finely diced
  • 3 ribs celery diced
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Fresh pepper to taste
  • 1 pound rosemary chicken sausage removed from casing
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed and diced
  • 3 sprigs rosemary leaves finely chopped
  • 9-10 cups loosely packed blue cornbread cut into 1/2-inch cubes—yellow cornbread works as well!
  • 2/3 cup dried currants
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup butter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Add shallots, celery, and garlic to a skillet on high heat with 3 Tbsp olive oil. Sauté for about 3 minutes, then add in Asian pear, and cook, stirring often, until soft, about 5-7 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste, then remove from pan and place in separate bowl.
  • Add chicken sausage to the pan, adding a little more oil if needed. Add in currants and cool until lightly browned. Remove from heat and add to pear mixture.
  • Add butter to a large oven-safe pan or skillet, then place in oven and allow to melt, about 4 minutes. Remove skillet from oven when butter begins to brown. Remove from oven and place cornbread cubes on top.
  • Lightly mix chicken, rosemary, and pear mixture in a large bowl, then add to the skillet with the cornbread and butter. Pour over the chicken stock, then lightly mix with hands.
  • Place in oven for 30 minutes—until top is browned lightly, then lightly mix with a spoon to expose softer parts, and place back in oven for another 10 minutes. Repeat process one more time—this totals about 45-50 minutes, but it doesn’t have to be exact—then remove from oven and serve warm!
