ChickenLady grinds popcorn up for the popcorn meal. I have done it, too. It's needs a good grinder. I broke my coffee grinder using this.

Thanks, another question do you pop the popcorn first or grind as is?

I guess the food processor is too large to make popcorn meal?

TIA

I bought the HUGE bag of corn bran from Honeyville. I can't imagine ever using it up in my lifetime. I wonder if I could use corn bran in place of popcorn meal?

Buffy if they say yes I'll send some to you!

Over the weekend I did some experimenting because stuffing is the food I'll miss the most at Thanksgiving. I don't do any grains, so the popcorn version is out for me.
I made a small batch of the following just to see if it might work. I thought it tasted great, dh and dd thought it was too eggy. But, what do they know. They don't eat lc. I didn't include any amounts, as that will depend on how much you are making:

* Exported from MasterCook *

Turkey Stuffing

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Holiday
Low Carb Sides
Thanksgiving

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
Maria's "Healthified" Subs -- see recipe
Poultry seasoning
Onions -- diced
Celery -- diced
Butter
Chicken or Turkey broth

Crumble the Subs into small pieces; sprinkle with poultry seasoning and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes (until dry).

Meanwhile, saute onion and celery in the butter until soft. When the Sub crumbles are dry, add the onion and the celery. Add enough chicken broth to moisten. Let it set to fully soak in. Add more broth and let sit if needed.

Place mixture in greased casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees until edges are crispy.

Interesting you post this. I have just today decided I should make this "bread" to see how I like it. Thank you for posting this!

I make it in my muffin top pan every week. To me, they are the most bread-like "bread" I've made yet. There is a whole long thread on these that you might want to read first. Some people were having problems with it, and it seems likely that the brand/kind of psyllium husk powder is the issue.

Maria's Sub Bread Stuffing

I made a loaf yesterday and cooled it and then cut it up
to dry in the oven until crisp. I had put a lot of sesame seeds
on it when I baked the loaf. It is good and crispy and I'm
putting it away in freezer until next week.
My plan is to make our usual J. Dean sausage,celery, onion,
pecans saute in butter, use chick broth and an egg to hold
it all together. It's a risk but I'm willing to try it.
Keeps me out of anything wheat.

That sounds like our stuffing, too. Thank you so much for replying.

I'll try to find that thread.
And thanks for the muffin top pan idea!

Yes, and it works just fine, but be advised - it's VERY NOISY!

Some of you good cooks on here - do you think I could sub corn fiber for the corn meal?
Corn fiber is mostly fiber - very low carb. I transferred some into a baggie this morning - it's as light as wheat flour, so it might not be the thing.

Does anybody know? TIA

I don't think so. First, corn fiber doesn't really taste much of corn. Second, it will likely soak up a LOT more liquid than the ground popcorn. Third, I don't think it will give you the "bulk" that the popcorn meal will.

BUT you could always try a half or quartered batch and see!

Yeah - you're probably right. And thank you for answering!

I wish I could remember why I bought that corn fiber... *sigh*

Ground baby corn adds lots of corn flavor.

Maria has a recipe on her website for cornbread using baby corn. I have used it for dressing in the past. I make it several days ahead and let it dry out.

After all this talk a couple of days ago, I ended up looking at so many sites for cornbread recipes. I got several that looked good.
I'll look at Maria's site, thank you. I mean, the more the merrier, right?

I am considering an experiment. Sauteed celery, onion, sage, jimmy dean sausage, a few pecans and bouillon. Let cool. Beat up about 4 eggs to mix in. Pour into casserole dish and bake. Should be like a quiche with all the flavors of stuffing but no bread. might work.

That kind of sounds similar to Linda Sue's stuffing pie (my favorite recipe of hers). It's really good.
