Ingredients

  • 1 baked Basic Cornbread (12 cups), broken into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 4 cups chicken stock (or canned low-sodium chicken broth)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons Emeril's Original Essence
  • 1 pound andouille sausage (or other smoked sausage), cut crosswise into 1- inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cups yellow onions, chopped
  • 2 cups celery, chopped
  • 2 cups green bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 4 teaspoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • Cooking Directions

    Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees F. Grease a 10-by-15-inch baking dish or two 9-inch square baking dishes with the butter.

    Combine the chicken stock, cream, milk, eggs and 1 tablespoon Essence in a large bowl and whisk to blend. Add the dried cornbread and stir to mix, breaking up the pieces with a wooden spoon. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

    Meanwhile, heat a large skillet or medium pot over high heat. Add the andouille and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Add the vegetable oil and reduce the heat to medium-high. Add the onions, celery, bell peppers, remaining 2 teaspoons Essence, the salt, black pepper, and cayenne and stir to mix. Cook the vegetables, stirring occasionally, until very soft and golden, about 15 minutes. Add the garlic and thyme and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and add to the cornbread mixture. Stir to mix well. Pour into the prepared baking dish and bake until golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes.

    Remove from the oven. Serve warm.

    Makes 10 to 12 servings
