  • 1 recipe cornbread cubed into 1 in cubes
  • 1 (1 pound) package hot italian sausage links removed if applicable
  • 1/2 yellow onion diced
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon dried ground sage
  • 1 teaspoon salt more or less to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped pecans or pecan pieces
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth


  • Cornbread recipe is linked to above. Make sure you bake the cornbread in a 9x13 inch pan at least 24 hours in advance. Cube, then store uncovered.
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Spread cornbread cubes onto an unlined 9x13 in rimmed baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, stirring gently halfway through.
  • Set aside to cool as you prepare the stuffing.
  • Turn oven up to 375 degrees F and grease a 9x13 in baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Heat a large non stick pan over medium heat.
  • Cook sausage, onion, celery, and spices together until sausage has cooked through and vegetables are tender, breaking up the sausage as you go.
  • Remove from heat and stir in cranberries and pecans. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together egg, melted butter, and chicken broth. Set aside.
  • Place the sausage mixture and toasted cornbread into a large bowl and pour the egg mixture over.
  • Gently fold everything together.
  • Be sure to not over mix. Some of the cornbread cubes will break apart, that's ok, but try to leave some of them whole as well.
  • Pour into prepared pan and bake at 375 degrees F for 20-30 minutes, or until warmed through.
  • Serve and enjoy!
