Deluxe Corn Bread Stuffing Recipe

Deluxe Corn Bread Stuffing Recipe

When my husband and I were newlyweds and far from family, we invited friends over for a traditional Thanksgiving feast. I searched for stuffing recipes and combined the best aspects of several to create this one. Everyone liked it, and I still make it for holidays.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 55 min. YIELD:10-12 servings


  • 6 cups crumbled corn bread
  • 2 cups white bread cubes, toasted
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 large tart apples, diced
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 cups chicken broth


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the bread, pecans and seasonings; set aside. Crumble sausage into a large skillet; cook over medium heat until no longer pink; remove with a slotted spoon to drain on paper towels.
  • 2. Add butter to drippings; saute the apples, celery and onion until tender. Add to bread mixture. Stir in sausage and enough broth to moisten.
  • 3. Spoon into a greased 3-qt. baking dish; cover and bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for 10 minutes. Or use to stuff a turkey; bake according to recipe. Yield: 10-12 servings (about 11 cups).

"I cut the recipe in half and only used white bread cubes, not cornbread. It was a delicious mix of ingredients that pairs well with pork chops. I added a beaten egg and only used enough chicken stock to moisten the stuffing."

"I was surprised how sweet this dressing was, my husband loved it. I did add a little more sage, just because I like it that way. Excellent side dish no matter what meal it's served with."

"Very high-end stuffing. Was a huge hit with my picky boyfriend who didn't even realize that he liked stuffing. The herbs give it a grown-up taste. And the apples and sausage make it a side dish that you can eat all on its own for leftovers. To quote my boyfriend, "This ain't no Stove Top!" No, "ain't." We'll be having this again next year. ;-)"
