Mushroom Stuffing

I first tried this stuffing a few years ago, and it fast became our family's favorite. Just flavor a hearty corn bread mix with mushrooms and bacon and taste the spectacular results. —Kathy Traetow, Waverly, Iowa

    Leave out the sage and it's great.

    Excellent recipe! Used Stovetop cornbread stuffing mix. I want to try Mrs. Cubbison's cornbread stuffing next time. Very easy recipe! I think I would like to try adding 1 tsp of Poultry Seasoning next time.

    I have made this stuffing for the past 2 years for Thanksgiving and will make it again this year. It is a big hit at my house and we never have any leftovers. I would recomend this receipe to anyone.

    I made this a couple of weeks ago and it was so good I decided to have it with our Christmas dinner. I used some left over cornbread and went light on the mushrooms, since the kids don't care for mushrooms, chopped them real small, they didn't even know they were in there.

    I made this last year for Thanksgiving and it was wonderful. I plan to make it again this year.

    This stuffing recipe was great. I made it for Thanksgiving 2 years in a row now. But last year I could not find a bag of unseasoned cornbread stuffing anywhere like I used the first year so I used regular bread crumbs. The stuffing was much better with the cornbread . Any suggestions on where I can find this 16oz of cornbread stuffing to use for this recipe, does it matter if it is seasoned already?
