Your own cornbread recipe or easy cornbread mix or can be used to prepare this traditional family favorite holiday dish.

Ingredients

2 pkg. (6.5 oz. each) cornbread mix* 

1 Tbsp. canola oil

12 oz. smoked turkey sausage, thinly sliced, or reduced-fat pork sausage, crumbled

3 cups College Inn® Turkey or Chicken Broth, divided

1 1/2 cups chopped celery

1 cup chopped onion

4 tsp. dried sage

1/2 tsp. black pepper

1 large egg, beaten 

Directions
  1. Prepare cornbread according to package directions for a double recipe, using broth in place of the liquid. Let cool 30 minutes before coarsely crumbling in a large mixing bowl; set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook sausage until browned, stirring frequently; remove and set aside.
  4. Add 1/2 cup of broth, celery, onion and sage to sausage drippings in skillet. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook 10 to 12 minutes or until celery is tender. Remove skillet from heat.
  5. Stir sausage, celery mixture and black pepper into cornbread. Add remaining broth and egg; gently stir until just moistened. (For moister stuffing, add 1 cup additional broth.) Spoon into an 11x7-inch baking dish coated with non-stick cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, 25 minutes or until golden brown.


*NOTE:  Eight cups coarsely crumbled cornbread of your own recipe can be used instead of cornbread prepared from mix.
