Cornbread dressing made with Atkins cornbread mix

I made regular cornbread dressing for everyone else, I did have about three small bites. But for me I made mine with the Atkins cornbread mix, all I added was onion, celery, chicken broth and salt and pepper. It was terrible it tasted like pure sugar. I had never had the Atkins cornbread mix before and I will not again it is extremly to sweet tasting. I also made the cauliflower mashed potatoes of the recipe boared I really like them. I am so proud that I did really well yester day. I stayed on plan except for two bite of pumpkin pie and one bite of a Andes cream pie very tiny tiny bites. I am not sure but the pumpkin might not have been to bad it had can pumpkin, carnation evaporated milk and egg. Overall it was a good day, considering I did 90% of the cooking and I had lots and lots of not lc stuff and a never ending dessert list. Now to get ready for Christmas.

did you add LC bread to your dressing??
I agree the cornbread mix is too sweet by itself but then again I don't add sugar to my "scratch" corn bread (I think sugar in cornbread is a Yankee thing??)
I made LC cressing using cornbread mix
LC toast and everything else like real dressing and it was good
my IL's couldn't tell the dif HAHA

I made the Atkins cornbread and used it along with low carb bread to make stuffing. I thought it was pretty good. I also liked the cornbread plain (we had to try it before I used it in the stuffing). It was on the sweet side, but I thought it tasted pretty darn good! My DH and mom also loved it and I'm planning a low carb chili and cornbread night for them soon.

Karingreen, I had the same experience as you. I had never tried the Atkins Corn Muffin mix and was looking so forward to making cornbread dressing. I also used 10 pieces of low carb white bread (dried out) in it. It was absolutely, positively horrible to my taste buds. It was far, far too sweet for me. I was so disappointed. It would have almost been too sweet as a dessert. lol

Well here I am, the lone dissenter! I made sausage and fennel stuffing using Atkins cornbread, a pound of sweet italian sausage, 2 large fennel bulbs, onions, etc. It was excellent! The cornbread added sweetness, but it's possible that the sausage and fennel detracted from the sweetness with savory flavors. The finished stuffing was not overly sweet at all. I plan to make it again for Christmas. It was a big hit!

I have never used the cornbread mix but I made Atkins Sausage-Sage stuffing and thought it was great. It also got rid of 4 slices of my Atkins white bread in the freezer (don't like it plain).

Same here. I used a tip from the Recipe board and used less water in the mix. I also added onion, celery, sausage and chicken broth. It was way too sweet for my taste. I'm one of those people who, making cornbread the old way, would only use a scant of sugar. I will not buy that stuff again!

I also combined other low carb bread (Trader Joe's) with the Atkins cornbread. Added celery, onions, mushrooms, pecans and sausage. Everyone loved it. It was sweeter than what I usually make, so next year I'll use a scratch recipe...

Yes! I made everything lc for Thanksgiving and the dressing was the only sub-par dish. Foul, foul, foul, candy-sweet yankee cornbread dressing. ICK! And I added lc bread crumbs, sausage, onion, etc. Still sticky sweet.

Well, I don't mean to boast but my recipe I can't believe it's not cornbread(recipe room) made a wonderful real tasting dressing. Just omit the splenda and wha-la. I'm not a yanky, but I like the taste off sweet cornbread-you know that Jiffy mix thing

Question: Did the recipe change when they changed the packaging?

I have tried the old packaging one before and really liked it. Maybe it's because I'm not from the south, but I happen to like my corn bread sweet!

I still want to try to make dressing out of this. For those of you that made it and liked it, what recipe did you use? Did you crumble and dry out the cornbread first?

I'm from Texas...No sweet cornbread in my family, so I used Sherrilee's Cornbread Dressing recipe. My mom made the old standard for the no LC-ing part of the family. My mom and my husband tried both. Mom's reaction: BLECCHHH! (But then it was one of her more negative days...Oh, well.) But, my husband met me in the kitchen and whispered, "I like yours better." He's a sweetie, but I think he really meant it.

Sherrilee's Cornbread

1 Pkg cream cheese (8 oz)
3 eggs
3 tbsp Splenda
1/3 cup Atkins Bake Mix *see below for making your own
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup Soy Grits (Bob's Red Mills Brand)
1/4 cup buttermilk
2 tbsp Bacon Grease melted** see below how to do this
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Beat cream cheese with mixer until blended smooth, add the remaining ingredients (see below for bacon grease) and let sit for 5 minutes before using.

3. Cast Iron Skillet:
Preparing the pan, this is a southern thing, so if you have never done this don't despair...it's easy! Preheat the oven with the cast iron skillet in side for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove to stove top and add 2 tbsp bacon grease, return to oven. Once melted remove the pan and turn to coat the sides of the pan, pour the remaining grease in

4. your batter and mix well.

5. Pour the batter into greased pan and return to oven, cook until golden brown on top!

6. If you don't have a cast iron skillet...just grease a 9X 12 pan and pour in mixture, don't forget to add the grease to your batter!

7. Slice and serve with a big ole pat of butter!

8. Makes 10 large Slices ~ 3.3 carbs per slice
