Around Thanksgiving time, Callie's Hot Little Biscuit sales a savory biscuit dressing kit (or "stuffing" for those outside the South). Made from day-old buttermilk biscuits, ensures that no biscuit goes to waste! In this Biscuit Dressing Kit, you would have received our biscuit croutons and a recipe card for this recipe to make your own savory biscuit dressing. Since we only offer this kit for a limited time, we wanted to give you the biscuit dressing recipe so that you can make it year around - not just at Thanksgiving!!
Inspired by Carrie Morey's Hot Little Suppers cookbook Cornbread Dressing recipe, Carrie incorporates butter, onion, celery, sage, broth, and biscuits (of course!).
1. In a medium-sized skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium heat.
2. Add the onions, celery, and salt and pepper. Sauté until the vegetables are slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a large bowl.
3. Break up the biscuit croutons and add them to the bowl with sage. Mix well to combine.
4. Grease the bottom of the tin pan left over form the biscuit croutons using 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the dressing mixture.
5. Add the broth and stir to moisten the dressing.
6. Dot the dressing with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and season with salt and pepper.
9. Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy on top. Serve warm.
