Sausage Stuffing

Every year for the last 5 years I've made stuffed bell peppers for Thanksgiving and this year is no exception. I've tried a few different stuffing recipes, but this one always seems to get the most compliments, so I've decided to share it with you. Enjoy!

Sausage Stuffing
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 pound sweet or hot pork sausage, casings removed
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups (1/2-inch cubes) cornbread (about 3/4 pound)
Preheat oven to 375°F.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking it up as you go, until browned and cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer sausage to a large bowl and set aside.

Add celery, onion and garlic to the skillet and cook until translucent. Add sage and thyme and cook about 1 minute more. Stir in broth, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Add cornbread to bowl with sausage. Pour broth mixture over the top and mix until well combined. Transfer to a (9-inch) casserole dish and bake until hot throughout, 25 to 30 minutes.
