Cornbread & Sausage Stuffing
Recipe from EatingWell

Cornbread stuffing, a Southern favorite, is a nice change from more traditional white-bread stuffing. Our delectable recipe uses Italian turkey sausage, rather than pork, and omits all the butter and cream to cut the fat by two-thirds. The stuffing is lower in sodium as well and so easy to make that it's sure to become a favorite side year-round.

Ingredients
  • 1   pound 
    sweet Italian turkey sausage, (about 4 links), casings removed
  • 2   cups 
    finely chopped onion
  • 1 1/2  cups 
    finely chopped celery
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
    salt
  •  
    Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 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  cups 
    reduced-sodium chicken broth
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
2.
Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring and breaking up with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 10 minutes. Add onion and celery; cover, reduce heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add cornbread, parsley and sage.
3.
Bring broth to a simmer in a small saucepan. Pour 1 cup over the 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. Spoon the stuffing into the prepared pan and cover with foil.
4.
Bake the stuffing until thoroughly heated, about 25 minutes. Serve warm.
