Sausage Cornbread Stuffing

I’m pretty sad I wasn’t on top of my game enough to research cornbread stuffing prior to Thanksgiving (duh), but I feel like the holiday lasts longer if I dish up similar flavors for days afterwards. Plus, I hadn’t tested out my B and J walnuts yet!

  • Place one bag of cornbread stuffing in large mixing bowl.cornbread stuffing
  • In saucepan, heat two cups of chicken stock and one stick of butter.
  • In skillet…
    • Fry 12 ounces smoked turkey sausage. Place cooked sausage in mixing bowl.
    • Saute one chopped onion, three chopped stalks of celery, 1/2 bulb crushed garlic in sausage drippings.
    • Once vegetables are soft, add 3/4 cup of walnuts and one diced apple.
    • Cook one minute more before adding all to cornbread.
  • Pour chicken stock over stuffing, stirring to combine. Add more chicken stock to reach desired consistency.
  • Place in greased casserole dish. Bake at 350* for 20 minutes, until heated through and crispy on top.

As I was mixing this up tonight, I thought, “Life would be so much easier if I would have just bought frozen pizza…and I wouldn’t have to wash the dishes.” All those negative ruminations went right out of my head once I was able to tuck into a steaming bowl of this flavorful stuffing. It’s ridiculous how much I love smoked sausage and the walnuts were the perfect crunchy addition to standard stuffing!
