Cooking Time15 min
- 1 loaf homestyle white bread, about 18 slices
- 1 (8 x 8-inch) pan of cornbread from scratch or an 8.5 oz mix, prepare per box directions
- 1 1/2 pound breakfast sausage with sage
- 2 cups chopped onion
- 1 cup chopped celery (including some leaves if available)
- 3 teaspoons salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoon teaspoons poultry seasoning
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup chicken broth
- Cut bread, including crusts, and the cornbread into 1 inch cubes and allow to dry overnight spread on a baking sheet. You should have 12 cups total.
- In a large skillet over medium high heat, crumble the sausage and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add onion, celery and the seasonings and continue to cook another 5 minutes until meat is browned and onions are translucent.
- Place bread cubes into a very large bowl and add the mixture from the skillet. Beat the eggs with the broth and add to the bowl. Stir well to coat the dry cubes with liquid – some of the bread will crumble, which is okay.
- Use this mixture to stuff a turkey or chicken, and proceed with the turkey baking process. If using a casserole, generously grease a 9 x 13 dish and spoon the stuffing into it, smoothing the top. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 45 – 60 minutes. The middle should be slightly firm and the top lightly browned.
