Being a southerner we were raised on cornbread dressing with a lots of sage and onions. We never had stuffing at a meal..

Stuffing your turkey makes it way harder to cook without drying out. Dressing all the way! This cornbread version looks amazing.

I love how pretty this looks! Much more appetizing than the traditional monotone stuffing. Would look lovely on my holiday table this year!

The celery and pepper add some extra crunch and I love me some crunch! Yay crunch!

I feel the opposite, Kaylee Renae! I want a soft and delicious stuffing with my Thanksgiving meal. But this is pretty tasty.

Stuffing picks up flavor from the meat, but it takes a lot less time and effort to just bake the dressing in the pan alongside. When topped with gravy, you get the meat flavor to satisfaction.

This looks like a rich and delicious recipe for a festive meal. I have never tried peppers as an ingredient for stuffing but I'm sure it will create a stronger more intense taste.

Yes. This sausage cornbread recipe is fit for the holiday season. When you're busy during the holidays, you can prepare this simple dish for your guests. It's very easy to prepare but very flavorful!
