"I make my own cornbread and when it comes out of the oven and cools, I cut it up in cubes. Then I add the cooked pork sausage, cooked onion, celery, sage, melted butter and chicken broth and gently mix and put in a buttered casserole and bake at 325 degrees for one hour. It's wonderful. I also use sage flavored pork sausage when I can find it."
