Sausage and Cornbread Turkey Dressing (Stuffing)

Sausage and Cornbread Turkey Dressing

This turkey dressing is my all-time favorite dish at Thanksgiving.  I even like it better than the turkey, and so does my daughter.  My mom developed this recipe many years ago by combining ideas from both her mother and her mother-in-law (my two grandmothers).  Her mother had always made a cornbread dressing, and her mother-in-law had used sausage.  And then my mom added a lot more spices and herbs than either of my grandmothers used.  The result is a dressing that is so good, I have never tasted another one that I like better.  To make this dressing, you’ll need sausage, a large loaf of bread, celery, onions, butter, chicken broth, a variety of spices and herbs, and one recipe of your favorite cornbread ( I happen to use Alber’s).

  Be sure you use Jimmy Dean sausage because it’s the best!

Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Hi! Can this be made the night before and baked the next day? Thank you!

  2. Holly, yes you can make this the day before. I have done that several times, but I usually take the recipe only as far as adding the spices. Then the next day, just before I stuff the turkey, I add the melted butter and the chicken broth.
