Cornbread stuffing, a Southern favorite, is a nice change from more traditional white-bread stuffing. We like to make this recipe with our not-too-sweet Wholesome Cornbread. You will need to make two batches to get 2 pounds. To save time, look for already prepared cornbread from a local bakery or supermarket.

Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate unbaked stuffing for up to 1 day. Just before serving, bake at 350 degrees F until hot, about 30 minutes.


  • 1 pound sweet Italian turkey sausage (about 4 links), casings removed
  • 2 cups finely chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 pounds prepared cornbread, cut into 3/4-inch cubes (about 12 cups)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1 1/2 to 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring and breaking up with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 10 minutes. Add onion and celery; cover, reduce heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add cornbread, parsley and sage.

Bring broth to a simmer in a small saucepan. Pour 1 cup over the stuffing mixture and toss gently (the cornbread will break into smaller pieces). Add as much of the remaining broth as needed, 1/2 cup at a time, until the stuffing feels moist but not wet. Spoon the stuffing into the prepared pan and cover with foil.

Bake the stuffing until thoroughly heated, about 25 minutes. Serve warm.
