Deluxe Cornbread Stuffing Recipe

Deluxe Cornbread 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.

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

"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. ;-)"
