Homestyle Sausage Cornbread Stuffing
Crumbled sausage gives classic stuffing a fun makeover. Homestyle Sausage Cornbread Stuffing is simple, yet impressive, savory, and soon to be everyone’s favorite holiday dish.
Which part of Thanksgiving dinner do you look forward to the most? For me, it’s the gravy (I love a good Southern style turkey gravy) and the stuffing!
As a kid stuffing looked unappetizing, which I definitely get. Onions, celery — eew green stuff too —my littles ones say the same thing. Only my oldest (who’s 8) is up for trying new foods without complaint. And I have to say, I feel so blessed to have such an adventurous eater. She loves stuffing too.
As an adult, I love trying new foods. And stuffing is one of those dishes you can make in so many different ways. It’s fun to experiment cause you never know when you’ll stumble upon your new favorite way to make stuffing.
On Thanksgiving, I tend to stick to an old family favorite recipe — a simple Southern style stuffing. It’s so soft and delicious! Plus, it’ll always remind me of family.
But who says you can only eat stuffing on Thanksgiving? A lot of people make it for Christmas too. And, for that matter, who says you have to limit stuffing to holidays? There’s no rule book! So I say, why not enjoy stuffing through the chilly months. It’s a wonderfully tasty classic comfort food and the perfect side to pork and chicken.
I discovered this Homestyle Sausage Cornbread Stuffing a few years ago. I was looking for a side dish for pork chops and the recipe sounded amazing! Fresh cornbread (yum!), crumbed sausage pieces (yes please!) plus the key ingredients — onions, celery, stock and the all time classic stuffing seasoning – sage!
I was so pleased at the result I make this sausage cornbread stuffing every fall. Just as the weather begins to cool, the rainy days make frequent returns, and homey dishes call to so many of us.
Homestyle Sausage Cornbread Stuffing is a perfect savory complement to pan fried pork chops and mashed sweet potatoes. It also goes great with chicken, and of course turkey. 🙂
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season! Enjoy!
Cooking with Kids
Cooking with my children is one of the most heart warming and cherishing memories. My little ones especially enjoy cooking with me during the holidays. All the special meals, comfort food and sweets is exciting, who wouldn’t want to be a part of it? 🙂
Recently we started using kid knives by Foost. The company makes toddler and school age kid knives. My kids love using these knives because of the independence they get in the kitchen. After all, they can do it all by their selves, as I’m often reminded. 🙂
My son (he’s 3) used his knife to cut the celery for the stuffing. He cut rather large pieces, but he did it all on his own. He was so excited! It’s great to see a child excited about vegetables. 🙂
