Stove Top Stuffing W/ Cranberries

Rose Mary Mogan


When I was a kid, my mom would take left over corn bread & make a type of stove top stuffing & called it CUSH. SHE ADDED CHOPPED VEGETABLES LIKE ONIONS, PEPPERS & CELERY & a pinch of sage , it was similiar to dressing except she made it on top of the stove. That is what this reminded me of, my husband requested Pork Roast for dinner, but I wanted Stuffed Pork Chops, so this dish was my solution. Using ingredients from the pantry & fridge, & it was not only economical but simple, tasty & easy to put together. My husband was impressed, & WE sort of got what both of us wanted for dinner. Try it.
