Cornbread-Sausage Stuffing

by Maria Chacon Kniestedt,

There’s just something about stuffing. I rarely, if ever, eat it except during the holidays. So, when it comes into fashion around Thanksgiving, I make sure to get my fill of this delicious, savory concoction. One of the best stuffing recipes I’ve ever tasted is from a former SacFoodie, Alison Colarossi. She shared this recipe with me many years ago, but it’s still a favorite.


  • 4 (8.5 oz) boxes Jiffy Cornbread Mix
  • 1 lb. sausage (Jimmy Dean is good)
  • 4 c. chopped celery
  • 3 c. chopped white onion
  • ¾ c. chopped parsley
  • 1 ½ tsp. rubbed savory
  • 1 ½ tsp. dried sage (flakes)
  • 1 ½ tsp. dried thyme (flakes)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • 1 can (16 oz.) chicken broth
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten

In sauté pan, brown sausage over medium heat and lift out of pan with a slotted spoon onto a paper towel. Sauté vegetables in drippings until tender, 8-10 minutes. Crumble cornbread in large oven-proof bowl or casserole dish and mix in herbs. Add vegetables and sausage. Gradually add broth and eggs, tossing lightly until well mixed. Cook covered at 325˚ for approximately 40 minutes (check at 30 and 35 minutes by inserting a knife in the center; if it comes out clean, it’s done).
