Total Time: 40

Yield: about 8 cups


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound sweet Italian sausages (about 4 links), casings removed
  • 2 cups finely chopped onion
  • 2 small carrots, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups finely chopped celery
  • 2 pounds prepared cornbread, cut into 3/4-inch cubes (about 12 cups)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1-1/2 to 3 cups low-sodium chicken or turkey broth, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste


Heat oven to 325°. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add oil and sausages, stirring and breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until most is cooked (some still pink), about 8 minutes. Remove sausage to a plate and discard all but 2 tablespoons of oil and rendered fat. Add onion, carrots, and celery; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Add cornbread, parsley, and sage.
Bring broth to a simmer in a small saucepan. Pour 1 cup over stuffing mixture and toss gently (the cornbread will break into smaller pieces). Add as much of the remaining broth as needed, 1/2 cup at a time, until the stuffing feels moist but not wet. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the stuffing into a prepared casserole and cover with foil. Bake until thoroughly heated, about 25 minutes. Serve warm.
