Cornbread stuffing, a Southern favorite, is a nice change from more traditional white-bread stuffing. Our delectable recipe uses Italian turkey sausage, rather than pork, and omits all the butter and cream to cut the fat by two-thirds. The stuffing is lower in sodium as well and so easy to make that it?s sure to become a favorite side year-round.

Recipe Ingredients for Cornbread & Sausage Stuffing

1 cup onion
1 cup celery
16 ounces corn bread
1 1/2 cup vegetable broth
2 tsp sage
2 tbsp parsley
1 tbsp olive oil
6 1/2 ounces vegetarian sausage

Recipe Directions for Cornbread & Sausage Stuffing

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 325F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

  2. 2. 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.

  3. 3. 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.

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