Ingredients to make Cornbread Dressing in a Mug

How do you make Cornbread Dressing in a Mug?

You will need a couple of cornbread muffins or a thick slice of cornbread to make this. If you don’t have that, you can whip up a quick batch with Jiffy brand corn muffin mix right in the microwave.

Once you have the cornbread muffins, just crumble two of them up in a microwave-safe 12 oz mug.

How to make Cornbread Dressing in a Mug

Then, crack an egg and add it to the mug. Use a fork or spoon to mix it up really well.

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and add to the cornbread crumbles.

Add between 1/4 to 1/2 cup of chicken broth or water. You’ll want to watch the consistency. Add 1/4 cup first and mix it up, and then add more as needed. You want the consistency to be like a thick batter, not too soupy of a mixture.

Add a couple shakes of each sage, salt and pepper.

Then give it a good stir and pop it in the microwave for 90 seconds.

Let it cool for a few minutes before eating. One bite will remind you of Thanksgiving.
