Sausage and Cornbread Stuffing

Ingredients:Pork Stuffing

  • 16 tablespoon butter
  • 3 medium yellow onions, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/2 head celery, trimmed and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb. pork sausage
  • 6 cups crumbled corn bread (see recipe)
  • 1/2 bunch parsley, trimmed and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup bual, malmsey, or other sweet madeira

*Using homemade corn bread greatly improves this stuffing.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-low heat. Add onions, and cook without browning, stirring often, until very soft, about 20 minutes. Add celery and rosemary; then generously season with salt and pepper, and cook for 5 minutes more. Remove from heat, and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  2. In the same skillet, cook sausage over medium heat, breaking meat up with a fork, until just cooked through, about 10 minutes. Transfer sausage to onion-celery mixture. Add corn bread, parsley, and madeira, adjust seasonings, and mix well.
  3. Spoon warm stuffing into turkey, truss, and bake. Or transfer stuffing to a buttered baking pan, and bake until hot and golden on top, 30 - 45 minutes
