Rhubarb Corn Bread Stuffing Recipe

Rhubarb Corn Bread Stuffing Recipe

This distinctive stuffing is awesome alongside ham, chicken or turkey. I've been a rhubarb fan since I was a girl, so when a friend suggested this recipe, I had to try it. Now when I serve this side dish, my guests are usually curious about my special ingredient...and they love it! -Kathy Petrullo, Long Island City, New York

Ingredients

  • 5 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb (1/2-inch pieces), thawed
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, toss rhubarb and sugar; set aside. In a large skillet, saute onion in 2 tablespoons butter until tender; add to rhubarb mixture. Stir in stuffing and walnuts.
  • 2. In a small skillet, melt the remaining butter over medium heat; pour over the stuffing mixture and toss lightly.
