Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • The day before you want to make the stuffing, bake the corn bread mix according to package directions, remove it from the pan, cover lightly with a cloth, and leave it to dry overnight. Tear the bread into pieces and leave it out overnight to dry.

  • About 1/2 hour before serving, preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and grease a 1 1/2-quart baking dish.

  • Place the sausage into a skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the sausage, breaking it up as it cooks, until the meat is browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in the celery and onion, and cook until the onion is translucent, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Stir in the sage.

  • Tear up and crumble the corn bread into a large bowl. Break the bread apart into 1/2-inch pieces, and lightly mix it with the corn bread. Pour in the melted butter, stir to combine, and lightly mix in the sausage mixture.

  • Whisk the chicken broth with the eggs, and stir into the corn bread mixture. Place the stuffing into the prepared baking dish, cover with foil, and bake in the preheated oven until the stuffing is cooked through and hot, about 30 minutes. Uncover the dish and return to the oven to bake until the top is lightly browned, about 10 more minutes.

Cook's Note

Planning tip: Bake cornbread and tear up white bread 2 days ahead. Leave out loosely covered overnight. Slice celery and chop onion up to 2 days ahead, bag and refrigerate. Make stuffing up to the baking step up to 1 day ahead, and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before baking.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This is the BEST EVER! I followed the recipe exactly and found it to be different in cooking time- mine took about an hour and it didn't fit in a 1.5 qt. dish but it took a 2.5 qt dish! Other than those two differences the taste was exactly what is promised! Read More

This is our family's favorite stuffing - I double the bread and use 2 pounds of mild pork sausage for a big turkey. We never have enough leftovers! Read More

I made this for my husband's Thanksgiving dinner at work. It was very good and my husband said this is the best stuffing he has ever had. He also received a lot of compliments from his co-workers. We will definately repeat this recipe on Thanksgiving! Read More

I made this stuffing for Thanksgiving and was delicious. I chose to make this recipe over other sausage stuffings since it called for egg and chicken stock. I feel this helped the stuffing stay moist since I did not stuff it in the turkey. I made it the night before and turned out just as if I made it that day. Everyone we had over for Thanksgiving has asked for the recipe. I will definitely make this again! Read More

Yummy! I am pretty partial to our traditional stuffing but I tried this one since it had cornbread and so does my traditional...I don't know if this will replace mine ( our family doesn't do change well) but it was AWESOME! I absolutely loved it and it was very easy to throw together! Thanks for such an awesome recipe! Read More

I made the recipe exactly as it states. We had 19 for dinner. There were no prisoners. By far the best stuffing ever......Note: I wasn't sure about the hot sausage. It isn't hot at all. It blends beautifully. Read More

I tried making a cornbread stuffing years ago and failed miserably so I was hesitant to try this one. But I have to say it turned out to be the best stuffing I ever made. The spicy sausage mellowed nicely so it was still spicy but not overly hot. I did add an apple though simply because I like apples in my stuffing. I will be making this again next year that's how much I liked it. Read More
