Tastes Like Home

Tommy and his family want the good folks of Marion County to know how much they appreciate the community’s continued support of Tommy’s BBQ through these hard economic times.

He’d like to share the story of how his recipe for cornbread dressing was born. The recipe came from Tommy’s Aunt Osie, who was the best cook in Bonifay, Florida. She cooked every week for the Men’s Supper Club. Each Thanksgiving and Christmas when the family got together, he would watch in the kitchen, and boy, those were the days! He would help her with the preparation by chopping celery and onions and taking the meat off the bones. After the stock was done, she made the egg bread. She was the master of getting the taste just right.

Tommy learned from his Aunt Osie and follows her recipe exactly, with one minor exception—he doesn’t use squirrel in his meat stock. She said it really helped the flavor, but Tommy has refined the recipe to make it squirrel-free and just as tasty.

Aunt Osie’s cornbread dressing can be enjoyed any time of year, but it especially perfect for the holiday season. Tommy’s BBQ offers many other delicious foods for the upcoming months, including smoked turkeys and hams with all the trimmings, giblet gravy and sweet potato casserole to mention a few!

Thanksgiving is Tommy’s favorite holiday and time of the year. His family has traditionally celebrated the holiday with friends, setting the table with plenty of great tasting food—from the turkey to the desserts.

These delicious favorites and more are available at Tommy’s convenient 441 location. If you don’t have the time to make great tasting food, let Tommy’s BBQ do it for you! Just give them a call—they’ll be more than happy to help you out.

Tommy’s BBQ also offers catering! December is a very busy time, so if you’re planning a party or an upcoming event, book your date soon
